It looks like Tekken 7 is on a roll. Not only is the game getting great reviews, but it’s also beating sales expectations. For almost 20 years, the Tekken series hasn’t topped any charts in the United Kingdom. Given the popularity of the franchise, it’s definitely shocking that games like Tekken 6 and others haven’t done that. Well, luckily, Bandai Namco’s luck has changed.

The Tekken franchise celebrates its 20th anniversary with the next evolution of the fighting franchise. Tekken 7 returns to the gameplay roots with classic bouts and a canon storyline centered on the eternal struggle for power amongst the members of the Mishima family. With newcomer Kazumi Mishima joining the fight, the epic battle between father and son, and also husband and wife, comes to its fated conclusion in Tekken 7.

Powered by Unreal Engine 4, Tekken 7 sets a new standard in graphics quality for the series, featuring highly detailed characters and dynamic environments. The home version also features an in-depth story mode that lets players fully experience the plot. We absolutely loved the game and you should give it a shot too if you’re into fighting titles.
