Watch Tekken 7's opening cinematic

The final battle is about to begin. And as any good final battle should, it'll take place inside a volcano.


Fighting game fans may have missed this reveal earlier this week. Bandai Namco released the opening cinematic for the upcoming Tekken 7, offering a glimpse at the beginning of what is billed to be the series' final chapter.

The opening kicks off the way every good climax should and that's with the two main characters facing off inside a volcano. Series villains Heihachi and Kazuya do battle, as we see more hints of the game's storyline start to emerge. The video ends with Kazuya undergoing a drastic change that won't be spoiled here.

Check out the full video below. The Unreal Engine 4-powered Tekken 7 is coming soon.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
