Is Tekken 7 Coming to Nintendo Switch?
Tekken 7’s June release date is getting ever-closer and players will be eager to take part in the King of Iron Fist tournament once more. While we know that the game is due to hit the PS4, Xbox One, and PC next month, some players may be thinking that Tekken 7 on the Nintendo Switch would be a perfect match.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t currently seem as though Bandai Namco has any plans to bring the latest entry in the classic fighting series to the Nintendo Switch. In an interview with GameSpot in April, series producer Katsuhiro Harada stated neither he or producer Michael Murray had been “able to get their hands on a Switch as of yet.” Speaking further on the potential of Tekken 7 heading to Switch, Harada said “Officially, we can’t really comment on that because our company has strict policy about which titles we talk about for Switch, but personally, we’ve been so busy with trying to master up Tekken for the current platforms that we haven’t really had enough time to study the hardware.”
While this doesn’t sound promising for fans hoping Tekken 7 could come to the Nintendo Switch, there’s always a chance it could hit the hybrid system at a later date. As soon as any announcements are made regarding a Nintendo Switch version, we’ll be sure to update this post and let you know.
