Tekken 7’s story mode will consist of several hours of gameplay, which includes side stories that players can unlock during their experience.  The story mode is not limited to players only controlling the Mishima family, but will also involve other fighters outside of the Mishima clan, such as Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists. This aspect of the narrative will play an important part of the overall story of Tekken 7.

Tekken 7 will be available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in early 2017.
