Two different games were originally announced. SFxT, a Street Fighter style game done by Capcom, and TxSF, a Tekken style game done by bamco. Ono was in charge of SFxT, and Harada was in charge of TxSF.
Well, I guess it depends on just what Harada means when he says this is going to be an "announcement". Is this relating to one of the two new games he supposedly wanted to reveal in 2014, or an announcement relating to TxSF?
Twitter is Twitter and all, and there's no definite way to take his message, but it's something to bear in mind.
Edit: Ah, beaten.
I don't want to get my hopes up, but I'd love anything Tekken related, or especially Soul Calibur VI. I really couldn't care less about Pokken. As someone who isn't interested in Pokemon, doesn't own and has no interest in owning either of Nintendo's current platforms, and is really eager about the next Tekken, I'd be disappointed. Tag Tournament 2 home release is almost two years old now. I'm eager to hear about what comes next, whether it's Tekken 7 or Tekken X Street Fighter. If the team announced that they were working on something like Pokken, which I am wholly disconnected from, it would feel like a waste of time.
Of course, I know there are a lot of people flipping their pancakes over the thought of Pokken, so I'm keeping my opinion respectfully my own.
Harada talking about the next Tekken game on Fab's stream. Said most likely solo, less characters 35-40 (TTT2 has 60), easier for new players. He also mentioned that backdash cancel is integral to Tekken so it'll most likely stay in. THANK JESUS.
Was really worried about the next game, but this is really reassuring.
If it's Tekken 7, hopefully it has more fundamental changes than 6 did. One of the things I love about street fighter is that there is a very clear difference between numbered iterations, not just improvements. It keeps older entries alive, and makes the newer one even more important. Stuff like Bound is nice and all, but it's hardly anything anyone who isn't a tekken fan would even notice.
