Tekken 7, a popular game by Japanese developer, Bandai Namco, took over the crown as the best fighting game in the genre of 3D fighting games when it was released four years ago.
A lot has changed since tekken 7 was first released as other games like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter are breathing down it’s neck.
Tekken has a lot of catching up to do, which is evident by reading reddit posts comments from the players.
One such player(@kunimitsu) said that just like in Rocket League(another big hit game), why can’t Tekken developers make a system where a popular high ranking players can share his/her training routine so that rookie players can copy and use them.
This is a great idea to help new players adapt to the game, mainly because it doesn’t have a tutorial chapter to begin with.
The developers have made several lifestyle improvements to the game over various seasons. The last season delighted the players with:
• A Big Life bar tab(so that players can take more damage and loss less health points)
• Higher level players always complained about broken ranking system. This has now been fixed.
• Players were often tired of getting matched with the same odd crowd. Well no more since the developers have fixed this issue and improved the matchmaking.
The developers have announced or shall I say teased on twitter(@TEKKEN) that a new fighting character will be introduced. Though this is still under wraps, the new white haired female character draws out a lot of enthusiasm.
The tweet puts emphasis on the “She’s not afraid to fight for her people” tagine. Also, a hint is given that she may be of Polish origin.
In addition, a new speculation has been on the rise. With the introduction of the next generation consoles worldwide, there is a possibility that Bandai Namco will introduce Tekken 8 rather than carry Tekken 7 into a new season.
However the latest tweet suggests that there is still a plan going on for Tekken 7. A little silver lining I guess.
So until then let’s practice the fighting techniques and try to master them. Tekken is here to stay as there is a huge fan base… following for this game, spanning over three decades.
