Will Tekken 7 Be The Last? Hopefully Not!
Will Tekken 7 be the last Tekken game? Rumors float that Tekken 7 would end the Mishima Saga once and for all. While there might be some heated debate on whether or not this game will be the last Tekken game but I thought of how Tekken appeared in the last generation consoles. The first three Tekken games were Playstation exclusive. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Tekken 4 appeared as a Playstation 2 exclusive. Tekken 5 went on with XBox and Playstation 2. Tekken 6 and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 went for XBox 360 and Playstation 3. Tekken 7 looks like it'd be Playstation 4 exclusive (for consoles) like Street Fighter V.
My thoughts are that should Namco cancel Tekken after 7? Maybe that's not the best thing to do considering that Tekken 7 would be the first game for the Playstation 4 (and hopefully, XBox One players will get it). I mean, it's the first time you'll actually see a Tekken game in 1080 pixels at 60 frames per second, it will be the first time Tekken gets a major upgrade from the already great gameplay it had in the last generation. It might be the first time you'll see better mini-games or a sidequest game/story mode type of game while the game will burst with content that the Playstation 3 and XBox 360 wouldn't be able to hold it.
It would be a bad idea to cancel Tekken after Tekken 7 because as I said earlier, it's the first game for the current generation consoles. I think audiences would probably want another Tekken game especially if purchasing power increases. I mean just think on when console owners will be able to play the game, you might hear them say, "Wow, that was the best Tekken ever." It might disappoint them to say that Namco decided that it would be the last Tekken game.
What do you think?
