Akuma (of Street Fighter fame) and Heihachi Mishima battle it out in the new E3 trailer for Tekken 7. The trailer was used to showcase the new story mode in Tekken 7, which creator Kitsuhiro Harada promises will allow seamless transition between cinematics directly into fights. Check out Akuma vs. Heihachi battling it out in the trailer below:
Akuma seems like a natural fit into the world of Tekken 7, although how well moves like his fireballs and “Raging Demon” will transition to the three dimensional fighting arenas of the series is yet to be seen. After showing the trailer, Harada announced one last gift for Xbox Live Gold members: a free downloadable copy of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. It is available free now in the Xbox Live Store.
Tekken 7 is scheduled to release in early 2017.
