Bandai Namco fighter set for current gen consoles.

Tekken 7

Looks like the rumor was true. A leaked IGN News video, published by AOL.com Video ahead of tonight’s official announcement, reveals Tekken 7 will be powered by Unreal Engine 4 and launch for current gen consoles.

“With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve the visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it,” Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada is quoted as saying in the video. “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”

Further details were not announced.

Watch the leaked video below.

  • Mikail

    Who hoo yes :)

  • JonathanisPrimus

    I guess Harada doesn’t desire a PS3, 360, Vita, Wii U (+3DS, lol) version of T7? IIRC UE4 doesn’t support those platforms.

    • http://www.game-art-hq.com/ Mr. Hoffmann

      Lol ..wiiU.

      • Ryuhza Murphy Timmuns

        Hey man, the Wii U sold at least 5 copies of Tekken Tag Tournament 2

    • John Mumpitz

      and that’s great! LAST GEN is so LAST GEN. get a nextgen/current gen console OR BUST!

    • Ryuhza Murphy Timmuns

      Good! Then we can expect amazing graphics that aren’t held back by excessive cross-platform nonsense.

      • Mikail

        But…but…but Xbox one

        • Ryuhza Murphy Timmuns

          Will take a resolution dip, but probably won’t hold back graphic potential too badly. Not as much as making the game playable on 6 different platforms would.

    • Ryan Burns

      Considering how bad UE3 is on the Vita (looking at MK and Borderlans 2 here) I can’t imagine that UE4 would perform and better.

    • http://murdokdracul.deviantart.com Jacob Graham

      As far as I know, Epic didn’t adapt it for Wii U but the option is there for companies using the engine to adapt it themselves to whatever platform. Still, as much as I want it on Wii U, it’s really not very likely.

    • Chaos_Knight
      • Furyhunter

        The source base does not have any platform support for Wii U or 360, or PS3 for that matter. So, no, unless the developers port UE4 to those platforms and push it to upstream, UE4 games can’t run on them currently.

  • Megamatics

    inb4 game is 30FPS.

    • Shippoyasha

      That would cause a riot as far as fighters go since 60fps actually serves the game mechanic.

    • wat_wat

      I’d initially be worried about that, but I trust Harada’s judgement. Him and his team have been doing this for years now and there’s no way in hell they’d choose to go with Unreal Engine 4 if they couldn’t do 60fps.

    • Rayjin

      Dude, it’s a standard rule now for all fighting games to move at 60fps.

    • Kamille

      has there ever been a 30 frames fighting game? Because I don’t remember a single one. These kind of games are made around frame-rate not graphics or mechanics. If there’s something that ruins frame-rate then they remove it.

      • Waifu Body Pillow

        JoJo ASB count?

        • PrinceHeir

          They actually could have made the game 60FPS, but chooses 30FPS because it’s more “cinematic” even though that’s BS and the only reason it wasn’t is because either they had to downgrade the graphics in order or make it 60FPS and it would lose that “cinematic” feel.

          Though the only reason they weren’t able to do it is because PS3 is on its last legs now.

          Hopefully with the PS4, everything will be fix :)

      • Nettacki

        Do some of the Naruto Ultimate Ninja and Dragon Ball Tenkaichi games count? They’re kind of fighting games.

        • EX+

          They’re 3d fighting games on last gen systems.

    • EX+

      It’s a fighting game.
      It’s a simple 2d area, that isn’t big at all. 60fps is guaranteed.

  • Girindra

    Unreal Engine?
    U know what that means…
    PC!!! :3

  • The Glorious PC Master Race

    UE4 and Harada loving steam so much lately = Tekken coming to PC for the first time.

    Thank you based Harada.

    • Waifu Body Pillow

      [arrogant mustard intensifies]

      • EX+

        Good one.

    • Mikail

      Isn’t they had with Tekken 6th on PC already, or you can pick Super Street Fighter 4 on PC? well the graphic is not too far from the console anyway because the pc will get the console port for this kind of game.

      • EX+

        Exactly.

  • http://youtube.com/miyabigaming 武神水樹

    Eh

  • rainelee

    Yeesssssss!

  • BlazeHedgehog

    Any platform as long as it doesn’t start with “Nin” and end with “Tendo”

  • wat_wat

    “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”

    I like the sound of that. C’mon Harada, lets see that PC version!

    • EX+

      Lol

    • Veemon

      wii u?

      • Orichalon Hades

        UE4 doesn’t even support Wii U as a platform

  • Jin Kisaragi

    I’ve been wanting to give the Tekken series a try. I think I might start with this game.

    • Guy Incognito

      Start with Tag 2. DO IIIIIIIIIIIIIT

      • LockM

        TTT2 is probably the most difficult tekken game to get into for somebody who has never played a Tekken game before. Honestly i’m a big FG player but TTT2 has too many characters, top many moves and strings per characters, too many mechanics, too many situational stuff with corners, to top it of you have to learn 2 characters. It is too convoluted to get newer players in, however the game is good though and fun though.

        TTT2 didn’t do a good job of gathering more new players.

        Hope T7 will streamline alot of stuff so a new pool of players will enter the community

    • Mikail

      Where have u been?

      • Jin Kisaragi

        I’ve been on the open forum.

  • Quetzalcoatl9999

    Nice, glad to see more fighting games, i’m also excited for Guilty Gear Xrd Sign.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      this year and next year great for FG’s

  • Bob Obb

    Ew

  • bloodiOS

    Nice, this pretty much meant that the game is guaranteed to only be released on PS4, XBO, and possibly PC. Looking forward to see some gameplay at TGS, hoping that graphics will rival or exceed that of Tekken 6‘s teaser showed at E3 2005 =)

    • Casey Morrison

      I remember that video, sucks that they were overhyping the graphics so much that games still don’t look that good 8 years later…

  • Gigus

    Guess its safe to say Tekken X Street Fighter is canned :(

    • wat_wat

      Either that, or very slow progress as it takes a back seat to Tekken 7. I’ll go out on a limb and say Street Fighter X Tekken probably killed the momentum/drive to get Tekken X Street Fighter out the door.

    • Kamille

      dude, it’s not easy to make street fighter characters play well in 3D. 3D fighters often have a sh*t ton of many more animations that 2D fighters you know.

    • Agent HUNK

      would of looked great im sure, but im thinking so :(

    • dez-e-ray112

      Harada stated that the game is still in development via his twitter.

  • Waifu Body Pillow

    Hmm, Unreal Engine, huh?

    What engine did they use for the previous gen Tekken games?

    • bloodiOS

      Proprietary engine.

  • Rayjin

    That’s your opinion scrub.

  • Mikail

    Killer instinct is mediocre, even mortal combat is better then killer instinct, Guilty Gear always popular among EVO tournament beside Street Fighter and KOF

    • Guy Incognito

      The fuck is mortal combat?

      • JokerFace

        Think he meant Mortal Kombat and to be honest KI is kinda just fkin boring. The mechanics in the game with the counter breakers and such just make it seem so slow paced to me. GG at the moment is still running on PS2 pixel graphics and can generate more hype than KI. Not to mention that 9/10 games that Arc systems puts out are just great.

        • Guy Incognito

          I know Huge MK fan. But spell it that way and you get that response.

          I agree KI has always been a Mash fest.

      • Mikail

        Sorry I mean Mortal Kombat lol :p

  • Waifu Body Pillow

    Emoticon is a giveaway. Learn to be more subtle.

  • Iyyuchtus

    “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”

    PSVita Please :)

    • Kamille

      UE4 doesn’t even run on last gen consoles let alone on Vita.

      • Hexodious

        It says any platform, take it however you like.

        • bigevilworldwide

          It’s FACT that Unreal 4 doesn’t run on last gen hardware so NO, there is NO Wii U, 360, PS3 versions….What it probably means is there may be a PC version

          • TalesOfBS

            >doesn’t run on last gen hardware so NO, there is NO Wii U
            Pretty dumb statement. If all it just confirms that U4 is X86 only. They don’t want to waste time porting for ARM or IBM.

        • TalesOfBS

          It is Namco. PC maybe, Wii U no.

      • Furyhunter

        The engine can be ported (the mobile LDR lighting target would be a perfect candidate for Vita support), but it has not been yet.

    • bloodiOS

      Most undesirable ;P

    • Casey Morrison

      That would be great

  • Sam

    Gears of Tekken

    • Guy Incognito

      EVERYTHING uses unreal now. MKX is on unreal. Gears of Kombat NO

      • Anime10121

        Difference is though, this is Unreal Engine 4 and not the outdated overused UE3! Plus, depending on when this releases, this may be the first “full” retail UE4 game!

  • Kamille

    I love how IGN says that it was “announced” when it was leaked when they were testing the projector at Evo. lol

  • Zackasaur

    LOL

  • Eder García

    “Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
    so WiiU version confirmed? idk if Harada wants to repeat the “i accept the challenge to put Tekken on Xbox 360″ scenario.

    • Dark_N11

      More like PC version confirmed.

      • Guy Incognito

        No no PC version

        • Nesther

          What? Why not?

          • sintheticreality2

            Because if they do it’ll be one less reason for him to say that consoles are better(exclusive games!!!), I’m guessing. That’s typically how some people think.

            Most games are multi-platform now. It makes littler financial sense to keep them restricted to one console or even two.

      • Diselt

        Yeah, Harada was talking about how he would love to bring Tekken to PC at some point, and he is a known Steam and PC game lover, so I think it’s a safe bet it’ll show up on PC.

        • sintheticreality2

          Yes! Bring it to Steam! I’d love to play it!

    • bigevilworldwide

      Pretty positive that it was confirmed Unreal 4 doesn’t work on the Wii U, and factually it does not work on 360 or PS3 so NO..IF anything it confirms no last gen platforms

    • TalesOfBS

      It is Namco, b*llshit again. Don’t expect this game on it.

  • Fainaru Luna

    killer instinct is GARBAGE compared to the fast pace combo thriller Guilty Gear. Please don’t compare the two.

  • Mikail

    so when we gonna see some gameplay footage?

  • samael789

    How the hell could you take someone’s completely positive, console neutral upbeat comment and be a complete cunt about it? Jesus Christ if you’re not 10 years old knock it off with the console wars bullshit.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      please never question fanboy’s about that there is no how behind it

  • Tetsu

    Go troll somewhere else.

  • UNREALWINS

    Somebody can upload the video?

  • Agent HUNK

    Awesome as all hell !!!! You just know its gonna be beautiful looking

  • Agent HUNK

    KI was a good game on xbox one….. but the graphics were not that great. expect great things from tekken

  • Guy Incognito

    So I guess Tekken X Street Fighter isn’t happening then.

    • Darkerson

      Probably not after the backlash and lower sales of SF vs T. Sad…I was actually looking forward to it and figured Namco would at least not pull the same stunt.

      • Guy Incognito

        People were waiting for TxSF they were skipping SFxT in favor of the namco version. Tekken Revolution was thought to be a dry run of the engine.

        • Darkerson

          I guess Im one of them. I almost bought the 1st one, but when news about the on disc dlc hit, among other things, I decided to hold off. Wasnt going to reward bad business practices.

          • Guy Incognito

            I bought it used for 360. When I got my PS3 it was the only game I didn’t upgrade. The DLC wasn’t the only problem it had. The game just flat out sucked.

            • Darkerson

              Before the DLC retarded-ness, I had serious hopes it would do well, since they were trying something new, but after that, kinda figured it would fizzle. Just sucks it took the version out with it.

    • Casey Morrison

      Sucks, that game would have been so cool

  • Six

    Not really a Tekken guy, but I can’t wait to see what a 3D fighter looks like built for the PS4 and Xbone.

    Dead or Alive 6 should be stunning.

    • Mikail

      and Soul Calibur will be amazing :)

    • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

      Don’t forget Tekken x Street Fighter ;)

      • FitzpatrickPhillips

        The game that ceases to exist

        • Guest

          Harada already stated the game is still in developmenet via his twitter.

    • MasterSensei

      And Street Fighter V

      • Anime10121

        I just hope SF V has a better art style! (love the game tho)

    • Elle

      Yep. Dead or Alive 6 character models will look insane I bet.

    • PrinceHeir

      Dead or Alive 6, Soul Calibur 6, Virtua Fighter 6, Jojo ASB2!!!

      If only Konami would stop being a dick and actually fund a new Bloody Roar game. The creator and orignal artist of 1 and 2 were actually working on the next game at the time, before it was cancelled with Hudson being absorbed to Konami

      We need these games now!!

  • Six
    • Luna Kazemaru

      0/10

  • Luna Kazemaru

    so in translation Guilty gear the game that is considered the king in FGs is mediocre because its not on xbox lol ok 0/10 troll

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    Huh. Namco’s going with Unreal again for early new console software? Hope it goes better then the LAST console transition, where they wasted who-knows-how-many months working on this game:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvtN6_NRWpo.

    I don’t know what happened in Japan at the beginning of the last console transition, but a bunch of studios started working with UE3 than abandoned it. Konami too had Coded Arms Assault running on Unreal 3 when the PS3 was announced, and dropped it. At least Square got out Last Remnant… not that it was great, technically.

    I hope Namco has a better grasp of UE4 than they did UE3 7-8 years ago…

    • michael bosket

      Mortal kombat vs tekken can happen right?

    • Anime10121

      At the beginning of last gen, UE3 had piss poor Japanese language translations for its tools, so a LOT of devs had issues working with it. Sure UE3 was easy as hell to utilize, but that meant diddly squat if they couldnt even read how to use it… I remember Epic had to work with Square on translating the engine for Last Remnant to even release, and it still came out buggy as hell :/

      Hopefully UE4’s already translated so that kind of piss poor technical issue doesnt arise with it!

  • michael bosket

    I’m a mortal kombat and street fighter fanatic tekken not so much but I am wondering what’s with tekken x street fighter?

  • michael bosket

    Well what will come up for tekken x street fighter it’s not hard making street fighters in 3D form. But mortal kombat vs street fighter need to happen though.

  • KidSareezWorldstarLCounter

    PC all day, bring those multi plats over here, waiting for the online $60 day one.

  • Bob Slim

    All I ask for is for Eliza to be in it

  • sintheticreality2

    Bring it to PC! I’ve already bought SF4, MK9, Injustice and Skullgirls on Steam. I’d love to add Tekken 7 to that list!

    • MasterSensei

      Namco is giving the PC gamers Rise of the Incarnates so you guys can enjoy that instead

      • Six

        This post makes no sense at all.

        • sintheticreality2

          He’s trying to sound cool.

          • Six

            Maybe. I just don’t understand the logic behind it. Tekken has been multiplatform for years now, so I don’t see why any console warriors would lose sleep over it ending up on PC.

            • sintheticreality2

              Because some people desperately need reasons to defend owning a console, I guess? Every game that’s considered console exclusive and ends up on PC makes their platform of choice less attractive in their minds. Can’t be sure but that appears to be the logic.

              They want to feel special and having their toys accessible by others makes them feel less special. It’s weird.

              • Six

                But the series isn’t Playstation exclusive anymore, that’s why I can’t grasp why anyone would be against it going to PC as well.

                It can’t be used to make their console of choice more attractive, because it’s also on another console. Adding one more platform to the mix isn’t going to make things worse.

                • sintheticreality2

                  Exactly. I think all games should be multi-platform. Doesn’t make sense to keep them exclusive.

                  • Six

                    I wouldn’t say no to that, but as long as their are console makers who want you to buy their platform, there will be exclusives.

                    I’m a huge fan of Halo and Gears of War, so I gotta buy dat Xbone. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

                    • sintheticreality2

                      “I wouldn’t say no to that, but as long as their are console makers who want you to buy their platform, there will be exclusives.”

                      That I agree with.

      • sintheticreality2

        Or Rise of the Incarnates AND Tekken 7. I’ll play both.

        • Mikail

          What about Guilty Gear Xrd ? :P

          • sintheticreality2

            I’ve got KOF XIII on my Steam wishlist but haven’t picked it up yet. I think Guilty Gear Asuka is on Steam. Don’t know about the one you mentioned, though.

            • Mikail

              Blazblue and Skull girls also a great fighting game that come to PC.

              • sintheticreality2

                Oh, yeah! Blazblue. That’s one I had my eye on. I have Skull Girls and it’s awesome! Great art style!

  • cusman

    They can easily bring Tekken 7 on any platform, but they are going to choose to skip the Wii U cause they already making Smash Bros for Wii U and nobody on Wii U would care about Tekken 7 there.

    • MasterSensei

      They can still release Tekken 7 on WiiU since they seem to have a good relationship with Nintendo… I’m guessing it won’t be released for a while yet though so people can have both Smash and Tekken

      • Foxko

        I think the problem is that Tekken 7 is being with UnrealEngine4, which sadly Wii U Doesn’t support.

      • cusman

        Do we know of any Unreal Engine 4 game that is already on Wii U? If that were the case, then the tooling would already be in place for a really easy port.

        Outside of it being too easy to not do, I doubt they will bother putting game on Wii U. Even though Wii U has stronger sales pattern than the XBO, even without the 3rd party support.

  • The Watcher

    So when is TK X SF coming?

  • MasterSensei

    This is the reverse of what Street Fighter IV did for fighting games.
    (From what I’ve heard the popularity of Street Fighter IV made Netherealm studios release Mortal Kombat 9 but I’m not too sure about Tekken 6)

    Mortal Kombat X was announced then suddenly Capcom wants to release Street Fighter V even though they said that they had no plans for a fifth installment until 2018 and now Namco wants to release Tekken 7…

    • PrinceHeir

      Tekken 6 came WAAAAY before SFIV. December 2007 in the arcades.

      SFIV didn’t revive the scene. The scene still had tons of 3D fighting games at the time like Virtua Ffighter 5, Dead or Alive 4, Soul Calibur IV was announced etc.

      SFIV only popularize the genre since the 2D space was actually kinda dead at the time. And it was also the first proper fighting game to have a proper online component which a lot fighting games are now required to have. Combine that with the hype of Evo as well revival of the series in after 10 years without sequel.

      Of course it’s gonna be success as hell.

      I was hype as hell for Tekken 6 back then. Didn’t even realized they announced a SFIV until there was a Super Announcement on console back then.

  • Elle

    Legit ugly crying at this announcement.

  • PrinceHeir

    FUCK YES!!! I can finally stop playing Tekken Tag 2!!!!

    I can’t wait for the trailer :D

    All we need is the sequels from 3D fighting games this generation

    Soul Calibur VI, Dead or Alive 6, Virtua Fighter 6, JoJo ASB 2(60 FPS please!)

    I can’t wait to see the girls of Dead or Alive 6 on PS4 or Soul Calibur damage armor effects on PS4!!

    Virtua Fighter 6 hopefully will be more VF4 Final Tuned offensive style of play.

    Bring back the amazing training mode please!!!

    Finally JoJo ASB 2 needs to be 60FPS and adds more characters like Maria, Part 6 and 7 Characters and Part 8 as well!!

    Lol Harada should kick the man who leaked this on the projector

  • tokyobassist

    The series needs to get back to basics. Tekken Revolution was a mixed bag for me. Loved the return of straight forward short juggle combos. Absolutely hated the Street Fighter-style move priority BS. It simply feels like crap in a 3D fighter.

    Hopefully Tekken 7 is good. Not crazy excited but hopefully it’s good.

    • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

      More like tekken4/5 would be great

      • http://www.di.fm Spicy Chicken

        Agreed, but more like Tekken 3 would be PERFECTION!!!! ^_^
        *sighs sarcastically before getting in one more round of Tekken 3 before going to bed*

        Hey, a man can dream! >_<

        • KingKellogg The Waffle Haggler

          I miss GON T_T

          Wish that was on PSN.

          • Elle

            I got tired of waiting and bought a pristine physical copy with art booklet, etc for 9.00 at a local shop a couple months ago. I still want to play it on Psvita tho. :(

  • PrinceHeir

    Looks like Harada is pissed about this

    https://twitter.com/Harada_TEKKEN/status/488373673061916673

    Stupid fucking IGN. Obviously they did for the clicks. What a way to be an ass and ruining the surprise for everyone.

    I hope Harada doesn’t do any interviews in that shit site in the future.

    • Mikail

      Lol its time to burn IGN, BURRRRNNN!

    • IHateTrolls

      Yeah sure it was “Leaked.” Also, noway will Harada stop doing interviews for IGN. It’s one the biggest gaming sites in the world and easy publicity.

      • PrinceHeir

        Biggest gaming site in the “west”

        No Japanese does interviews there aside from Kojima and Nintendo officials.

        Dengeki, Famitsu, 4Gamer, Game Watch is where you see all the interviews.

        IGN, Kotaku and the like have no effect on what happens in the east. Especially their bitching about female fanservice in Japan.

        • IHateTrolls

          Most of the sales from the games comes from the West. Tekken has been a PlayStation franchise for a long time. Why do you think after the PS2 era, Tekken 6 and Tekken Tag 2 came out for the X360? Which has always been a PS only title. X360 is doing absurdly bad in Japan, but selling like hotcakes in the West. It was for the Western Market.

          Why do you think they are using UE4, instead of using their own engine. Because they can release it for platforms like the PC, which is huge in the West. It’s just business, and you target where you get most sales. And that happens to be the Western market. Tekken games sell more in the West, and have a far bigger fanbase outside of Japan.

          • PrinceHeir

            The reason they probably used UE4 is because of ease of porting games on other platforms not just PC.

            I also don’t know where people got the idea just because it can be ported on PC doesn’t guarantee it will have a PC version.

            Kojima said MGSV can be ported on PC yet there’s still no announcement on it watsoever.

            And Tekken is actually bigger in the east. Especailly Korea and Tekken where the best players hone their skills there. Why do you think it’s always Japan, Korea + Other Asian countries like Singapore and the like get the Arcade Versions first well before any western country had in the past games?

            Tekken 6 was first revealed on arcades then Bloodline Rebellion on 2008 then the Console on 2009.

            Tag 2 was the same thing. First released on Japan and Korea for the arcades for playtesting in 2011 then US and other western countries for console versions 2012.

            This may change in this title since waiting for 1+ years isn’t exactly good for the customers since other countries like Japan and Korea get to level up and master the mechanics first than other players.

            But this is also good since they can play test things and fix a lot of bugs and OP moves before going to consoles.

            • IHateTrolls

              I know it doesn’t guarantee anything. But the given how Japanese developers are becoming more PC friendly, and the choice of engine. It’s a strong possibility.

              Yes, Tekken always hits the arcades first and then the consoles. It’s been that way since the first game on the PS1. Arcade games like Tekken were born from Sony’s need to showoff their new PS consoles power. They licensed the board for arcade use to companies like Namco, which in turn made it real easy to port it to their console. But, the publisher cannot survive on just arcade versions. They make most their profit from the console versions.

              Also, you underestimate the number of Tekken fans that play on consoles. There are a lot of great console Tekken players. Also, if you take into account the size of the fanbase. The Western fanbase easily out numbers it’s Asian counterpart. Sure they might not as good, but their love for the franchise is just the same.

        Lol

        He could just do interviews for Famitsu and Dengeki, and be fine with that. IGN is only big in the West, man. His own country’s media takes priority over foreign media any day.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      IGN is about the only site that isn’t running this story right now; they never posted an article or anything. Their video was leaked on a different website. Don’t see how this is their fault or how they “did this for clicks” (like that brilliant Last Guardian article).

      • PrinceHeir

        Supposedly at a room where this trailer was about to be shown, someone messed up the projector and showed the Tekken 7 logo.

        There was an IGN guy in the attendance and quickly mailed IGN about the story.

        They probably thought it was officially announced and wanted to get a head start so they uploaded the video and will publish the story right after wards.

        And how can you leak something if you didn’t uploaded it in the first place?

        There are three possible scenarios:

        1. Someone uploaded it without IGN’s consent,

        2. Someone leaked and hacked to their servers

        3. They just published way too early.

        Let’s give them a benefit doubt and say someone did uploaded it without IGN’s consent.

        It’s still their fault for not abiding the NDA rules and it’s their responsibility to keep things hidden until the official announcement is lifted. Are you telling me someone just managed to snag a copy on their headquarters without them knowing? The fact that they failed to do this just shows what kind of company they are.

        Remember Star Fox Wii U reveal? Someone at Yahoo(Polygon or something) published an interview and impression ahead of the reveal. Of course it’s already done, it’s just a matter when they’ll officially reveal and can publish it with no problems.

        Not to mention this is IGN we’re talking about. The Last Guardian headlines is still one of their best click and bait switch they have done this year. I’m sure they have more to come for this year and the next.

        Shame really, this would have been an amazing surprise since It’s been awhile since Tag 2 was release(2011 Acades; 2012 Consoles).

        A lot of people we’re expecting Tekken X Street Fighter instead. This would have been a huge surprise that’s for sure.

        • GetOffMy_Lawn

          Then the person to blame here is the person who screwed up the projectors and let that logo show, not IGN. I don’t know how we can blame a video games news site for preparing to report the announcement of a major game that, as you correctly point out, is highly anticipated by many people. Besides, that freelance writer isn’t the only one talking about this, as Sal pointed out in the rumor article.

          You can’t really compare this to the Last Guardian incident. The Last Guardian article was IGN publishing what amounted to little more than a guess that the game had been cancelled without consulting Sony first. That is the definition of irresponsible journalism. Here, however, IGN was waiting for official word before reporting this online. If anything, they were trying to prevent another “Last Guardian” incident.

          In short, you can’t blame IGN, a gaming news site, for preparing to report an incident that is wholly EVO’s fault.

          EDIT: lawl… I forgot the main point of my original comment: There is still absolutely nothing that suggests IGN did this “for the clicks” (ala Last Guardian article) considering that the video isn’t on IGN and IGN STILL has not posted an article about this. I get that it’s easy to just blame IGN given the site’s past, but it’s completely unjustified in this incident seeing as how it was the workers at EVO who allowed the logo to appear in the first place. IGN is just preparing to do their job.

    • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

      I don’t see where it shows he’s pissed about this o.o

      It just reads:

      “Thank you for coming at EVO2014 ;)
      *Breaking News*
      I’ll leave Vegas now and fly to San Francisco Airport then fly to Japan.
      See you guys!!”

      • Diselt

        He was supposed to announce Tekken 7 and another thing at EVO, but IGN leaked it (purposefully, obviously for page clicks) before he could officially announce it. Him saying he’s about to go to Japan means he’s basically ragequitting the event out of annoyance.

        • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

          Ah, okay. I thought this was just a typical post like, “Alright, had fun guys! I’m heading back now!”

  • g1i1ch

    “We’re sorry, but the video you are trying to watch is not allowed to be played on this device.”

    On computer? I’m on a pc with windows…

  • IHateTrolls

    You guys honestly think it was leaked. You sure are gullible.

    • PrinceHeir

      Lol are you clueless? It was leak via aol online by IGN.

      Now the article is remove out of nowhere. and they act like they have nothing to do with this.

      Read the information above next time please.

        His name is ironic too, lol.

  • Buk Lau

    But What About

    Tekken X StreetFighter ???

    • Diselt

      Most likely put on the backburner for now. Harada did say not too long ago that the game is still “a thing”.

    • ayb_91

      Wait till 2067 for further notice. Be patient please. Thank you kindly.

      • Buk Lau

        by 2067….Lol ill be about 76

    Can’t wait to juggle on next gen.

  • benbenkr

    Oh sheet. If UE4 doesn’t allow 60fps on consoles, then Tekken 7 is fucked.

  • Stereotypical_White_Fella

            The articles about Tekken 7 have brought about lots of new faces.

            Most of them are drive-by shit-posters.

            • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

              Sure seems to be the case.

  • Protagonist

    I always sucked at fighting games, but I had always loved the cast of characters and there stories of this series. Tekken tag tournament was my favorite.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHeroTetsuya TetsuyaHikari

    Great. Now where is Virtua Fighter 6 to compete with this?

    Entitlement? More like some people just like to play the game on their platform of choice.

  • EX+

    Yeah, but many gamers in general feel they are entitled and add flames to the fanboy wars.
    Not that I care much.

  • http://hatintime.com/ ShadowFang

    Not “many”. A vocal few. It’s pretty stupid to let them soil what it is simply another great platform. As they say, “Don’t let a few bad apples spoil the whole bunch”.

  • Guest

    Japense fighting games outside of SF rarely ever have a PC release outside of the minor companies. Not going to say PC sucks or that it won’t happen but you guys have your luck cut out for you. PS has their hearts.

  • EX+

    Fair enough, but they are the most vocal.

  • Six

    If Microsoft announces an exclusive JRPG at TGS, I’ll be digging this post up.

  • Shiratora Yuuki

    “I’m getting sick of PC Gamer entitlement.”

    “…but many gamers in general feel they are entitled and add flames to the fanboy wars.”

    What does these quotes make you, then?

    Seriously, if you’re doing advocacy to stop fanboyism and hatred on each other’s preference of gaming, take a good look of yourself on the mirror first.

  • EX+

    My post isn’t adding to fanboy wars. It’s simply explaining why the other user you quoted made that post, albeit irrational. In what way was my post hateful? And by the way, I am not trying to stop anything.

  • EX+

    Okay… Why?

  • Six

    For extra ammunition. You know, from what I’ve read in this topic, it isn’t PC gamers that are the most vocal.

    It’s console warriors. People wanting Tekken, a multiplatform game, on PC is just too much for some to deal with. The series is already on Xbox, so I don’t know why anyone would care.

  • EX+

    Alright
    But you don’t necessarily sound righteous when you say extra ammunition.
    I also think that you have it backwards in terms of who’s more vocal.
