It’s good to have Tekken back again!
Tekken 7 is a fighting game developed and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game is the ninth installment in the Tekken series, and the first to make use of the Unreal Engine. Discover the epic conclusion of the long-time clan warfare between members of the Mishima family. The game’s story is told through the perspective of a reporter who attempts to write an exposé about Mishima Zaibatsu and G Corporation following the deaths of his wife and son in crossfire during the world war precipitated by Jin Kazama. Tekken 7 focuses on 1-on-1 battles. Two new mechanisms are introduced in the game. The first, Rage Art, allows the player to execute critical attacks that deal roughly 30% damage depending on the character once their health bar is critical, in exchange for inactivating the normal attack power increase. The second, Power Crush, lets the player continue their attacks even while being hit by the enemy, although they would still receive the damage dealt by the enemy’s attacks. The mechanic also works only for absorbing high or mid attacks. Love, Revenge, Pride. Everyone has a reason to fight. Values are what define us and make us human, regardless of our strengths and weaknesses. There are no wrong motivations, just the path we choose to take.
