It appears fans looking forward to Tekken 7 may finally learn more about the Devil Gene and its origins. Maybe.

The trailer posted below is the extended version of the one shown at EVO 2014 last week. It reveals the storyline of the game a “new key character” of the series, Kazumi Mishima. She is the wife of Heihachi Mishima and mother of Kazuya Mishima.

The byline for the video on YouTube states that “the final battle is about to begin,” and producer Katsuhiro Harada said himself at a panel during San Diego Comic Con Tekken 7 would “serve as the conclusion of the Mishima clan saga,” per Polygon.

He also said the game would provide a very through backstory and will hopefully explain why Heihachi wants to kill his grandson, as well as other Tekken mysteries.

The game will feature one-on-one battles and characters will be designed by seven guest artists one of which is Ninnin (Vanguard), who will provide the redesign of Lars from Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.

Tekken 7 is an Unreal Engine 4 game and is without a release date.
