Game overview/synopsis

Tekken is another well-established fighting game franchise that made its mark on the video games scene way back on the original PlayStation.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada said recently he recognises eSports is becoming increasingly popular, and expects the scene to pick up further with the launch of Tekken 7.

Tekken is well-known for its 3D fighting gameplay and playstyle.


Raise your fists and get ready for the ultimate battle on the next generation of home consoles. Powered by the Unreal Engine 4, the storied fighting franchise returns for another round in Tekken 7.

With the Tekken franchise celebrating its 20thanniversary; the newest chapter of the series 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.
