Where’s the panda?
Bandai Namco has kindly released the opening cinematic video for Tekken 7 ahead of its official release in June. If you’re hoping to jump into the story mode completely fresh, don’t watch the video. If not, you can check out the cinematic down below.
Tekken 7 revolves around the Mishima Feud, which involves Heihachi and his family, and the story intends to explore the reasons behind all the bloodshed surrounding them. In the midst of all this insanity, Akuma from Street Fighter also makes an appearance, and Bandai Namco has informed us before that his character plays a rather central to the story as well. The opening cinematic also gives us a glimpse of supporting characters like Nina and Lee, and it should be interesting to see the roles they have in this latest instalment. Kazuya’s in there too, and he definitely looks pissed about something. The stakes have never been higher in the Tekken universe.
Tekken 7 is set to be released for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2.
