With Tekken 7 set to launch on PC and consoles later this week, Bandai Namco Entertainment has decided to put out a brand new trailer to get fans primed for the forthcoming port of the arcade title by offering an overview for practically all of the release’s features. In addition to the gameplay elements shown off in the fresh video, the publisher and developer has also reminded fans that those who pre-order the title will get Eliza as a playable character on day one.
As seen below in the latest trailer for Tekken 7, the first feature that gets highlighted is the game’s Rage Art abilities, which are armored special moves that allow players to inflict huge amounts of damage on their opponents to turn the tides of battle in their favor. Following this, the title’s Rage Drive aspect is touched on, showing how fans can pull off unique tactical maneuvers, as these are character specific moves.
In addition to the Rage system, Tekken 7‘s latest trailer also highlights the Power Crush armor move, how the title allows for “epic” match-ending slow motion sequences, and the dynamic stages that players can experience. As far as the lattermost feature is concerned, each level will let fans experience time of day, weather, stage, and music changes throughout the course of the battle.
Of course, one feature shown off in the trailer that Tekken 7 fans are looking forward to the most is “The Mishima Saga” story mode, and the newest video highlights it with glimpses at certain chapters and cinematic footage that transitions directly into combat. The initial clip displaying such begins with guest character Akuma taking on the franchise’s long-time villain and antihero Kazuya Mishima on top of the roof of a building near a helipad.
Finally, the trailer details Tekken 7‘s online mode, which will offer exhibition battles, ranked matches, and a tournament mode that can host up to eight players. As far as offline features are concerned, there will be an arcade mode, a versus mode, and a practice mode. Not to mention, there’s a feature called Treasure Battle that lets fans acquire various items and fight money, the latter of which can be used to buy character customization objects.
All things considered, Tekken 7 looks to be a commensurate port of the fighting game’s arcade version and then some, which should definitely excite fans of the franchise. So, while gamers on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One are enjoying the title when launches this Friday, Nintendo Switch players will undoubtedly be crossing their fingers for a version on the Big N’s latest system someday in the future.
Tekken 7 is set to launch on June 2, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
