Developer Bandai Namco has announced that its upcoming fighting game Tekken 7 will be coming to Xbox One, with a release date slated for "early 2017." The news was revealed by Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray during Microsoft's presentation at E3 2016 today.
The Tekken 7 trailer showcased a brawl between Street Fighter character Akuma and Tekken frontman Heihachi Mishima. The fight blended cinematic action scenes and in-game fighting seamlessly, with Akumi speaking of "fulfilling a promise" to Kazumi Mishima, insinuating that the two have some sort of ties to one another.
In addition, the duo revealed that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 will be free for Xbox Live Gold members just this week. Akuma's addition to the game comes as no surprise, given that he was announced in December 2015. Tekken 7 has also been announced for PS4, but no firm release date has been confirmed yet. It will also be available on Steam.
