Tekken is amazing. Just a reminder in case you’d forgotten that.

Tekken 7 is coming to arcades in Japan starting February 18. Namco Bandai has released the fighter’s opening cinematic in anticipation of this happy event, and it is awesome:

Is this the best game about flamboyant characters beating each other up for ludicrous reasons or what? Street Fighter may be the eSports king, but Tekken is definitely the most fun one.
