    I hope none of you are Tekken aback, but it looks like a new entry in the fighting franchise is on the way.

    :arrow:Gematsu

    This follows a previous rumor/leak of the game's existence. The last numbered Tekken came out almost 7 years ago (5 if we're just counting console versions), so fans have had quite a wait.

    Unfortunately for Wii U fans, it looks like your console of your choice has been disqualified from participating. The use of Unreal Engine 4 does open up the game to easier porting, though, so PC fans might get lucky this time around. I know that's not a whole lot of consolation to you, but hey, you got Tag Tournament 2, so... there's that, at least.

    On another note, it looks like I've combo'd my news posts to post about a combo-based fighter. How fitting.

    EDIT: Here is the teaser trailer. Obnoxious distortion and cryptic plot details no one cares about incoming.

    Wait. Doesn't Unreal 4 mean it should be relatively easy to port it to Wii U as well?

    PC does have Street Fighter and Skullgirls so it at least sounds likely that Tekken would like the piece of that cake as well seeing how they are doing other consoles than playstation these days.

    It's F2P singleplayer only.

    I mean, it's not technically "Soulcalibur VI," but after V, whatever, it might as well be.

    They were sure Tekken their time. Geez.

    BTW, where's Tekken x Street Fighter? The game is basically entering vaporware territory at this point. They really did to redeem themselves after its counterpart didn't do so hot.

    Presumably, they're just refusing to mention the game and hoping beyond hope that everyone just forgets about the whole thing.

    "Tekken vs. Street Fighter? What? Why would we have take-Ken? Don't be ridiculous."

    So similar to how Square-Enix wants everyone to forget about Final Fantasy XV or Sony about The Last Guardian.

    They should just cancel it already. Like the two aforementioned games, the hype dwindles with each absence at each passing game convention. That or the contention increases.

    It's already the seventh game of the series? I remember last playing Tekken: Dark Resurrection and TTT2.

    I bought TTT2 for the Wii U to try it out if it were as good as people praise it to be, and it was fun but not my type of game. I prefer Smash Bros. to it.

    Tekken X Street Fighter is the 'official' title not VS.

    Epic Games said developers can ship a game on Wii U using Unreal 4 if they wanted to, but they won't officially support it, so I guess the work to get it operable on the Wii U would be up to those game developers.

    yeah, right? I wonder who gets his own multibillion zaibatsu this time around. maybe paul? like, a biker-dojo zaibatsu. because, as times get desperate in the tekken universe, the world is slowly transforming into some mad max like desert kingdom and everyone gotta buy biker stuff then

    well, the story. the story of the game. its always 'we have a zaibatsu. you have a zaibatsu. and somehow, all the kazamas and mishimas are really good at creating zaibatsus out of thin air. now lets have a martial arts tournament to further our zaibatsus power' except for that one time when an ancient war god was the reason for the tournament.

    I'm really disappointed it wasn't TK X SF, I feel like Tekken is stagnating at least for an outsider like me, I can't really get into the series. First there's DR, then 6, then Tag 2, then Revolution and now this all on the same generation (probably). I know I say this as an SF4 player but I really think it would've been more beneficial to release X SF to get more people to try Tekken and a balance update for Tag 2 instead, I thought Tag 2 still had plenty of life left in it.

    ...Since when is the Unreal 4 Engine and Tekken the "Holy Grail of Gaming"?
    ...ah I see, it's because it's not coming to Wii U?

    FYI this game will probably not turn heads on ANY console, despite being developed with the aid of UE4.
    Tekken is, and has been, a 'meh' game to begin with for a couple years now.

    Nobody said anything of the sort, so...?


    Might want to dial down that persecution complex, bucko.
