Bandai Namco Arcade Game
Heihachi, Kazumi, Kazuya… Ling, Hwoarang and Jin…
The dramas, triumphs and heartaches of the legendary Mishima Clan and their various allies and enemies have dogged our steps since the inception of Tekken as an arcade game staple in the mid 90s. And while the game has seen many forms and versions since, one thing’s remained the same: epic battles FTW!
In Tekken 7, Kazumi takes a bow as a playable character for the first time, shedding more light on Heihachi and Kazuya’s history. She’s got some slick moves, too… Cue Eye of the Tiger!
The game features a roster of more than 20 characters, including the likes of Jin, Paul, Eddy and Ling – we all have our favourites, and you can bet there will be a fighting style to suit you.
The biggest addition to Tekken 7 is the introduction of the “Rage Art”, which allows players to utilise their rage to unleash a heavy barrage of attacks when their health bar is low. This is a really cool component to get your character out of a tricky situation and plays out nicely with some smooth cut-scene like graphics.
Tips & Tricks…
The pros know to focus on the following:
- Learn to parry throws & low block. You can parry throws by tapping both arm buttons and low block is activated by hitting down and forward when you spot the attack.
- Work those Power Crushes! Check your character’s attack combos and use the Power Crush to break through any opponent’s block.
- Master the Rage Art. When your health is down to 20% it’s time to rev up your combos for a masterful dismissal of your opponent.
