Tekken 7 got a new trailer last week and for those of you who have kept up with the story elements of the series, there are a few clue as to what’s going on in the next installment.

The trailer features some gameplay, but the snippets of cinematic cut-scenes are far more interesting if the story mode is your cup of tea.

If you’re as clueless as I am when it comes to the story so far, you can catch up here. Once you’re waded through that and watched the trailer, you’ll spot Kazuma sporting a fancy forehead jewel that he may be using to harness the Devil gene.

Meanwhile Heihachi and Street Fighter’s Akuma are squashing a beef and they mean business.

I’m sure someone more versed in the lore than I am can speculate further, so pop any observations or theories in the comments below.

There’s still no release date yet but Tekken 7 will be out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in early 2017.
