, the next installment in the storied Tekken franchise. Katsuhiro Harada, TEKKEN series Executive Producer/Game Director at BANDAI NAMCO had this to say:

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. 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 Japan, states:

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.
