Since the Tekken series is one of the most beloved and easily accessible, anyone who’s played the series at length can probably guess who will be making an appearance in Tekken 7. The only way you’d be wrong is if you listed a special character that only appeared in spin-off modes or stories or games that take place outside the cannon timeline. For example: Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

However, Bandai Namco wants to show off all our favorite fighters for next-gen systems before it releases. The company uploaded a ‘Roster Highlights #1 Character Trailer’ today that showcases the likes of Marshal Law, Feng, Bob, Bryan, Devil Jin, and Hwoarang. As an additional treat, we also get to see new characters Gigas and Katarina in action. Although Gigas’ moveset is incredibly similar to another fighter, Craig Marduk. We also get to see some in-game cutscenes and Devil Jin looks as badass as usual. You can check out the trailer below.

Lastly, if you are able to read and speak in Japanese, you’ll point out that this trailer is a few days old. That may be true, but this is the first time it’s in English or made available for the Western hemisphere. We expect the same to happen with the subsequent entires into Tekken 7’s Roster Highlight trailers.

Tekken 7 is being developed by Bandai Namco and will release on June 2nd for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The arcade version originally released in Japan on March 18th, 2015. After all they need to get that quarter money. Still be careful when discussing the latest entry into this franchise with Japanese speakers. They know how the confrontation between Heihachi and Kazuya ends. Can’t have one of the biggest plot points in Tekken history spoiled now can we?

Are you excited for Tekken 7, also known as the only Tekken game to be on current-gen consoles? Who are you hoping will make a reappearance as a playable character? Will you just spam with Eddy Gordo or Christie Monteiro? Hit us up in the comments and let us know what your favorite Tekken title is.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
