This past weekend, Bandai Namco announced Tekken 7, the next release in its long-running fighting game series, at the annual Evo fighting game tournament. Previous versions of the game weren't released for the PC, but there's a chance that could change with this version. The company stated that Tekken 7 will be built atop Unreal Engine 4, which allows for broad cross-platform compatibility. Have a look at the trailer:
Although Bandai Namco didn't provide a release date or platform availability for the new game, Tekken executive producer Katsuhiro Harada says that "not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire" in the company's press release. According to a Tweet from Harada, more details of the upcoming game will be released at San Diego Comic-Con next week.
Fighting games aren't traditionally a PC staple, but releases like Divekick show that it's not due to any inherent limitation of the platform. Here's hoping that Bandai Namco sees fit to include the PC in its release plans.
