Strange costume for Yoshi. Is this supposed to be his true alien form? Or just another wacky custom costume.

So, being short on funds, I've decided to pick this one up instead of Injustice 2 (despite being interested in both) because I know Injustice 2 is going to do fine sales wise.

I've honestly never really payed attention to the story, and the last Tekken game I actually owned and played through was Tekken 3. I just know the basics of the story through basically osmosis and I do like the characters in general as a result as well. Have watched a couple of the animated movies that have released as well.

So for those that are keeping up, what's the story situation with this game. I know there is a cinematic story mode but I've heard different things. Some folks are saying it is actually going to cover the whole story, some saying it's just covering certain parts from the past, but is mainly a conclusion.

So has any more info been revealed yet in regards to what it covers? What should I check out to catch up?

Nother PC user here. I'm not good at all, but I might seek out matches in the OT if finding randoms proves exceedingly tough.

Tekken 4: Kazuya is brought back to life by G-Corporation, a rival company to Heihachi's Mishima Corporation. Tournament is held, Heihachi officially wins retaining control of Mishima Zaibatsu and Jin unofficially beats the crap out of both Heihachi and Kazuya after the tournament before sparing their lives thinking it's what his mother would have wanted.

Tekken 5: Heihachi's father Jinpachi is freed from captivity after GCorp attempts to assassinate Heiahcahi by blowing up the building Heihachi was in. Jinpachi starts the new tournament. Jin beats everyone and becomes the new head of Mishima Zaibatsu.

Tekken 6: Jin wants to kill the devil gene inside him and decides to fulfill some prophecy that if the world goes into complete war and chaos a divine beast Azazel will come and wreck havok and hopefully kills the devil gene history. Jin fights and destroys Azazel and disappears. (Post credits Raven discovers his body in the desert somewhere) Meanwhile Kazuya becomes the head of GCorp. Lars was the main character with everything from his perspective and is Heihachi's illegitimate child.

Tekken 7: Heihachi and Kazuya continue their rivalry...

Not sure. I'm mainly a PC guy so I'd like to get it there, but I'm also worried about the playerbase being small (and maybe tilted towards hardcore/established players). I'm going in as a newbie with limited time, so fast and accurate matchmaking is a pretty big deal to me.

I'll probably end up just getting it on PS4 at launch since I know I'll be too impatient to play the wait and see game. Then maybe I'll double-dip later if there are some fun mods and a reasonable playerbase.

Going by one of the loading screens in the latest build, it seems like there's a main story and you unlock sub-stories or character episodes as you play through it.

Yeah I'm definitely all in on pc. If only to support the platform. I love bamcos support for it lately, and I want them to see future Tekken and even future soul calibur games as viable on the platform. I hope it does well.

Eliza is only available by preordering for the first 30 days. After that she'll be available as paid DLC but not as part of the deluxe edition.

Yup, I saw it. Hope they'll fix it. The fact that King's combo destroyed the floor and they went to the bottom of the Ruins stage seems to have caused a glitch with Heihachi's health bar. It could be a bottom level glitch.

Oh I'm not worried, it's an old build and it was recorded months ago.

i wonder how they'll handle the story this time around. i figure it'll be a mix of tekken 4's story mode and just some regular cutscenes like scenario campaign.

Nah, that's his Tekken 7 default slightly recolored. And he's not an alien, he just wears really fancy suits that his scientist pal designs for him.

Xbox One downloads can sometimes be larger as they tend to download all the language versions in one bundle, whilst PS4 downloads language options according to region.

Yoshimitsu's bio in the early games was always "mechanized space ninja". Maybe they've retconned that now, but to me he'll always be a space ninja.

if that's a thing i'd rather all the cutscenes be in game.

tekken 4's endings while prerendered, were still in game graphics and i feel like they were longer and better than tekken 5's.

I honestly think going by the ESRB description all of the series endings are in the game which is what Gallery is for.

Story mode is another factor.

so it'll be like tekken 6 where character endings are separate from the canon story

I am not so sure about, going by the stream it seems they are intent on wrapping up some characters plotlines. I think they might be canon in the chapters given to them.

No one asked about arcade mode and if that has endings.

But there is no mention of it on the picture of the collectors edition.

ok cool. it would be nice if this time around the individual character endings were canon more often than not.

I've said before but that initially referred to "the void" as his elemental. It's why he warps and splits and such and such. Though it does seem that the team has taken it more literal as the series became goofier over the years (i.e. Paul).

Edit: For instance, imagine it read "Mechanized Fire Ninja". They would give him fire based attacks and maybe over the years make him more demonic and hellish and imply "he's from Hell like Scropionz!"

Noooo!
You could always count on Tekken having loads of single player content, that was one of the main draws for the series for me and now they're removing survival and possibly ghost mode?! I loved those modes! :(

Happening to all fighters lately like Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter etc less modes included each time. Maybe because reviews never counts those modes so they don't feel the need to bother with adding them or something dunno

Actually MK X had survival for the first time in a MK game and Injustice had like 10 or more different single player modes, so Netherrealm is one of the few fighting game devs that are actually adding more single player modes.
Sadly it seems most other devs are concentrating on adding cinematic story modes you only play trough once and online.

Didn't they say that there will be a story mode in the style of MK and a normal fighting game arcade mode (like in the actual arcades); they might give the arcade mode the wacky endings.

You only get Eliza as a preorder bonus and the season pass is not part of it, as of now I think the only way you get the game with the season pass is with the digital deluxe.
