E3: Tekken 7 Will Bring the End To The Mishima Family Blood Saga

Madeline Ricchiuto writes from E3,

Much of the story of the Tekken series revolves around the Mishima family's blood feud. During a press demonstration at E3, Bandai Namco teased that Tekken 7 will bring an end to that story arc, using Street Fighter's Akuma as a pivotal character in the battle between Heihachi and Kazuya Mishima.

Where Tekken will go from there is anyone's guess, now that Street Fighter characters are a part of the Tekken universe.

Gameplay in Tekken 7 will use new mechanics called Rage Arts, Rage Drives, and Power Crushes. Rage Drives are a decently defensive technique as they allow you to deal damage while being somewhat impervious, while Rage Arts are a more powerful attack, but signal an end to your character's Rage.

Tekken 7 comes to Xbox 1, PS3, and Steam in early 2017.
