Tekken 7 3.00 Update Out Now For PS4

Tekken 7 Season 3 will run from September 2019 – spring 2020, and introduces a wealth of new features for the game. Starting today though, you’ll get access to returning combatant Zafina, new moves for all characters, balance changes for every fighter, and a revamped user interface and all-new stats.

Beyond this, Namco is going to be adding three extra characters into the mix, one of which is the recently-confirmed Leroy, who is an original character. There’s also a new stage and gameplay feature in the pipeline, but nothing has been revealed on that just yet.

The fact Tekken 7 is still getting support over two years since its initial release is at testament to its popularity. In the eSports arena, the series perhaps strong than it’s ever been, and the Tekken World Tour 2019 is still on-going, drawing huge crowds.

Tekken 7 was released for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in June 2017. The game features a full-fledged story campaign that brings the curtains down on the long-running feud between Heihachi and Kazuya Mishima, and includes bite-sized narrative matches for the rest of the cast.

The development also refined the series’ gameplay with several new additions, including Rage Arts and Rage Drives, which are powerful attacks that can only be performed while the character is on low health. There’s also the Power Crush, which lets you attack an enemy while absorbing incoming damage.

At this point, I’m starting to wonder if Tekken x Street Fighter will be ever materialise; given Tekken 7’s success, I think Namco would rather place its bets on Tekken 8 at this point.
