'Tekken 7' To Add More Arcade Versions In The United States, Katsuhiro Harada To Finally Unveil Console Version Release Date?

By Alex Cruz

"Tekken 7" fans, finally here's some news. It has been reported that more arcade versions of the game, which was announced in July 2014, will be added in the United States, plus there are speculations that Katsuhiro Harada, the game producer might be announcing the console version of the game at an event in Tokyo.

The "Tekken 7" limited arcade version was released in Japan back in February. This month, Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that they would bring the game to the United States.

Unfortunately, it was only released in six arcades for trial. However, the company stated that there is a possibility of making the game available in more arcades if gets good feedback from the gamers, MNR Daily reported.

Meanwhile, the rumors of Harada unveiling more details about "Tekken 7" at the 2015 Tokyo Games event rooted from his Twitter response to a fan confirming his presence on the event.

His affirmation got the "Tekken" fans excited, and most are expecting that after a year of waiting since the 7th game installment was announced, he would be able to give more details about it, especially, when it will be released.

The reported reason behind the delay was because Harada was working on three games at the same time — "Tekken X Street Fighter" for PS4 and Xbox One consoles and "Pokken."

One thing that would prove that Harada is working on "Tekken 7" for consoles was the announcement he made after the limited arcade version was in Japan. According to the Christian Post, the director was inviting gamers for feedbacks and suggestions on the issues they had come across.

Harada reportedly made the same appeal to the fans during Tekken World Tournament at the 2015 EVO event. He added that the team was working hard on improving "Tekken 7" before its release, making it better version than the ones available in the arcade.

The ratings of "Tekken 7" in Japan are really high. Despite some glitches, which are inevitable, reviews revealed that those who have tried the game found it satisfying, as per the report of YouthHealthMag.

The 2015 Tokyo Game Show is scheduled to commence on Sept. 17, and will end on Sept. 20. Hopefully, the fans will get what they have long been waiting for.
