Tekken 7 Is An Ending Of Sorts

Tekken 7 Is an Ending of Sorts

If you've played Tekken at all, you probably know that the core of the drama in the fighting game series' fiction is the intergenerational conflict of the Mishima clan. Jinpachi Heihachi, Kazuya and Jin all want to punch each other to oblivion. That beef will be coming to an end, according to Tekken series producer Katsuo Harada.

Polygon has a report of a Comic-Con panel held today, where Harada talked up story details about the next round of the King of Iron Fist tournament.

Along with divulging that the Mishima family drama will be resolved in Tekken 7, Harada also said that plot points from past Tekken games will be explained as well. He also said that Tekken 7 will be featuring the design work of seven guest artists, including Bayonetta stylist Mari Shimazaki and Yusuke Kozaki of Fire Emblem Awakening fame.

In a post on Shoryuken, Harada also said that the long MIA crossover Tekken x Street Fighter is still in development. The panel also included the extended cut of the Tekken 7 trailer that debuted at EVO 2014.

      Why did you do that? Just trying to hide spoilers?
      I decoded it but as I'm not a Tekken player and barely know any of the story, I can't really comment on the content.

    Wait, people are enthralled by the story in Tekken? This is the game that has a boxing kangaroo right?

      No its about the love story between Kuma and Panda

        Its a story of a Mexican Lucha Libre desperately fighting to save his local orphanage for the kids that live there; only to be confronted by evil first world country monsters that seek to oppress his charges.

        Or at least that is what I take from the story every time I pick up a Tekken game.

      Have played it numerous times and had no idea there even was a story. Imagine I'm not alone in that.

    If you've played a few of them, the story is pretty obvious. Heihachi threw his own son Kazuya into a live volcano because he was trying to overthrow him (from memory). But Kazuya survived because he had the devil gene in him, hence why there is Devil Kazuya.

    Then Kazuya's son (Jin) showed up in Tekken 3 who later discovered to have the devil gene too.
    Somehow Heihachi's father was still alive and a demigod...and I haven't played Tekken 6 so don't know where the Mishima family story ended up.

    And the obviously all the other characters have their little storylines but the Mishima storyline is the main thing about Tekken.
    And the movie was terrible. Could have been awesome...but alas video game movie are always crap.

    *remembers something that links tekken to another series* ok so to remind people what timeline tekken is in, you 1st have to look at yoshimitsu, basically he is the ltest in the line of yoshimitsus, 1st & 2nd yoshimitsus were in the soul caliber series, so what if something else from that series impregnated kazuya's mum, whom she was talking to in the trailer about heihachi, what if this someone was also worried about heihachi wànting that power, if believe we have to wait foŕ the game to come out to see whom that someone was

    what really happened with jin's mother. I hope it get's light on tekken 7 too. By looking the trailer it is about Kazuya's mother.
