Tekken 7

Tekken Project development team lead Katsuhiro Harada is prepared to drop a bombshell of an announcement at EVO 2014. But it turns out his big surprise has already been revealed to the gaming world at large.

For fans of the long-running “King of the Iron Fist Tournament,” get ready for the next battle (see what we did there?) because Tekken 7 is on its way. It will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4, as quoted by Harada himself:

The power and flexibility means that we can focus our efforts on making TEKKEN 7 the best possible game without worrying about spending time creating a stand-alone graphic engine. With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring TEKKEN 7 to any platform we desire.

Taka Kawasaki, Studio Head at Epic Games Japan, also expressed his excitement over the new installment of Tekken getting powered by the latest Unreal game development engine:

The Tekken franchise is beloved and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the talented team at BANDAI NAMCO. This marriage is perfect – the most powerful engine in gaming along with one of the most enduring brands in fighting games. We have no doubt that these forces coming together will yield fantastic results.

As of this writing, no consoles or release date plans have been announced. But we can totally see this game making a splash onto the Xbox One and PS4.
