Bandai Namco announces Tekken 7 at EVO, runs on the new Unreal Engine 4

Bandai Namco has officially unveiled Tekken 7 at the Evolution Championship Series today. The title joins other recently announced games like Crackdown, EVE: Valkyrie, and Fable Legends that are set to utilize Unreal Engine 4.


Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken series Executive Producer/Game Director at Bandai Namco, had these words to share about using Unreal Engine 4 for Tekken 7:

“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.”

Tekken 7 turned heads at EVO, with a reveal trailer dazzling attendees that looked stunning. Check it out:

Looks tasty. Taka Kawasaki, Studio Head at Epic Games Japan, had a few words to say about the sexy hot pairing of Unreal Engine 4 and Tekken 7:

“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.”

More info on Tekken 7 will be revealed at San Diego Comic Con on July 25th. No platforms have been announced for the title as of yet, but my money is on Xbox One and PS4, at the very least. What do you guys think of the game so far?!
