Bandai Namco have unveiled Tekken 7 during the Evolution Championship Series.
Tekken 7, the latest installment in the famous fighting franchise, will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4 and developed in collaboration with Epic Games.
“The power and flexibility means that we can focus our efforts on making Tekken 7 the best possible game without worrying about spending time creating a stand-alone graphic engine,” said Katsuhiro Harada, Tekken series Executive Producer and Game Director at Bandai Namco
“With Unreal Engine 4, we could rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platform and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to immediately bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
Taka Kawasaki, Studio head at Epic Games, also said: “The Tekken franchise is beloved and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the talented team at Bandai Namco. This marriage is perfect – the most powerful engine in gaming along with one of the most enduring brands in fighting games.
“We have no doubt that these forces coming together will yield fantastic results.”
