Since pummelling its way onto the pixelated scene back in ’94, the Tekken series has cemented its status as a colossus of the industry’s fighting game genre, and that legacy will soon continue through the release of Tekken 7.

Truth be told, Bandai Namco’s brawler has been a long time coming, given it was first introduced via a limited arcade release in 2015. That seeded the creation of Fated Retribution, which launched for those in Japan just last year. It’s by no means the first fighting game to make its debut via arcade cabinets before eventually being ported to consoles — and is unlikely to be the last — but there’s a crackle of excitement swirling around Tekken 7. And it’s small wonder why.

So, you’re ready to go a round or two with Tekken 7‘s musclebound character roster? Not so fast! In anticipation of its launch on June 2, we’ve scoured the four corners of the internet — and the PSLS archives — to compile all the necessary information you could ever need pertaining to Bandai Namco’s long-anticipated brawler.

It’s been a long time coming, but Tekken 7 is expected to make a beeline for PS4, Xbox One and PC on Friday, June 2. But tell us, do you plan on scooping up Bandai Namco’s super-stylish brawler on day one? Do let us know.
