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.

It’s still going today, with Tekken 7 out in Japanese arcades and arriving on consoles in 2017.

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.
