Tekken 7 returns to its gameplay roots with classic 1 vs 1 bouts and its canon storyline centered on the eternal struggle for power amongst the members of the Mishima clan.

With newcomer Kazumi Mishima joining the fight, the epic battle between father and son, and also husband and wife, will come to its fated conclusion in Tekken 7. The supposedly killed wife of the main protagonist of the series, Heihachi Mishima, is also the mother of Kazuya Mishima. Her powers will be key to understand the feud between Heihachi Mishima, his son Kazuya Mishima and his grandson Jin Kazama. The conclusion of the Mishima clan saga is sure to be dark, but also sweet for early PlayStation fans as the origins of the Devil Gene, among other Tekken mysteries, will finally be unveiled.

Tekken 7 is currently in development at Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc.’s Tokyo, Japan studio under the leadership of franchise director, Katsuhiro Harada.

Players will also be able to check out new fighters Kazumi Mishima, Claudio, Josie, Shaheen, Katarina, Lucky Chloe, Gigas, and more for the first time outside of the arcade.
