Tekken 7 finally arrives on consoles in June

Tekken 7 will finally make the jump from arcades to home consoles this June after a 15 month wait, promising to bring the story of Kazuya and Heihachi’s long-running familial war to an end.
When the game launches on June 2, it will do so digitally and via brick and mortar retailers but there are a few differences between each version you should know about.

The Digital Deluxe version can be found on Steam, PSN and the Xbox Store and will net you Tekken 7 and its Season Pass. Getting it through the Xbox Store will land you a free backwards compatible copy of Tekken 6 in the bargain.

PS4 owners will receive a fair amount of exclusive content like legacy costumes from Tekken 2 and Tekken 4, as well as something called Jukebox Mode which will let you listen to old music from Tekken games? If you want to? We honestly don’t know who that particular mode is for, Tekken‘s music has historically made us want to claw our eardrums out, but if that sounds like something you’re into then by all means enjoy yourself.

You can also pick up a physical Collector’s Edition at your favourite gaming retailer that will contain a steel book case, a Season Pass code, the game’s soundtrack and a 30x45cm state of Kazuya battling Heihachi seen in the press image below. Additionally, those pre-ordering a physical copy will also get the Eliza character DLC, a vampire who last appeared in Tekken Revolution.

The game’s Season Pass will contain extra heroes, stages and costumes that will be rolled out over time post-launch. No word on who will be appearing, or what sort of stages we can expect to see just yet. No Season Pass pricing has been detailed yet either.

Also, Akuma from Street Fighter is in the game? We don’t know what he’s doing there but, as long time Akuma fans, we’re happy to see him anyway.

Tekken 7 will launch on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC on June 2, 2017. We have updated our Australian video game release dates page to reflect this.
