Today Bandai Namco revealed Tekken 7 has been delayed to June 2, 2017 on all platforms. June is a far cry from the original "Early 2017" timeframe touted by the publisher, with the game now releasing in Summer 2017 instead, but the publisher has stepped in to answer for the cause of the delay.
Although Tekken 7: Fated Retribution has been out since 2015 in Japan, the console and PC port is much different than the arcade version. The NA and European Tekken 7 will have a multitude of features that aren't available in arcades while also retaining much of the same content of the Japanese version.
"The console version of TEKKEN 7 contains features, tuning, characters, and modes that are not found in the arcade version," a rep from the publisher wrote on Bandai Namco's Facebook page. "This version benefits from everything we learned from the arcade launch of the game. The console version also contains a full story mode not found in the arcade version, along with some fan favorite characters. We also want to make sure our online tournament features perform to the highest possible standard. All of these improvements take time and we appreciate your patience."
