Kazumi revealed for Tekken 7 - gameplay trailer, artwork and screen shots

Kazumi revealed for Tekken 7

Kazumi Mishima was revealed this evening for Tekken 7. For those not familiar with her place in the Tekken universe, she's actually the wife of Heihachi, and mother of Kazuya.

Harada has previously stated that neither Jinpachi, Heihachi or Lars possessed the Devil-gene, which lead many to believe, prior to Tekken 7's San Diego Comic-Con trailer, that Kazumi was the first to have it, and therefore passed it on to Kazuya and Jin.

The SDCC clip subsequently proved this theory to be correct.

During a trailer for Tekken 7, Heihachi was revealed to be Kazumi's killer, which happened before the events of the first entry in the Tekken series.

The back story actually reveals that this iconic fighting game character's ongoing story arc is very rich.

Awp Williams, a YouTuber who enjoys delving into the more theoretical side of games, has done some research on Yoshimitsu and shares the beginnings of his findings with us in "What the Hell is Yoshimitsu? Part 1."

While better known as a Tekken character, Yoshimitsu has also been a large part of the Soul Caliber series. In this first installment Williams discusses Yoshimitu's story within the confines of Soul Caliber, and helps us better label him beyond the old "Creepy/weird guy with the sword" title.

Just as a heads up, the video is briefly NSFW and may be somewhat offensive to some. Hit the jump to see it.

Yoshimitsu in action! Watch GuntamaMiraclein take Yoshimitsu into practice mode to perform a few combos as well as his Rage Art

Yoshimitsu was confirmed to be the newest Tekken 7 character just a few days ago. GuntamaMiraclein has just recently released some footage of the Tekken original in practice mode.

Though our analysis is obviously very limited at this point, he seems to retain his traditional feel and flow with his multiple stances and familiar moves. Guntama explores a couple of Yoshi's special moves as well as performs a few juggle combos.

Yoshimitsu has the ability to wield one, two or no swords as he fights. It looks like his Rage Art is a counter move that leads into a single, knockdown hit if successful. Sorry, no tentacle-based moves yet.

Could Gigas actually be Marduk? AwpWilliams presents his interesting Tekken 7 theory with video footage to back it up

As more and more pieces of the Tekken 7 puzzle fall into place, we can begin to formulate ideas and prospects about the upcoming game.

AwpWilliams has presented an intriguing hypothesis about the origins of Gigas, the recently revealed Tekken 7 fighter. Gigas is a hulking giant of a character, very similar to Tekken 4's Marduk.

Exactly how similar? When you put footage from the Gigas trailer next to footage of Marduk, you'll notice that they actually share a lot of the same moves. Much like Julia Chang evolved into Jaycee for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, perhaps creators have decided to go in a new direction with Marduk.

This is all speculation at this point, and perhaps, minus the similar moves and appearance, the two characters have nothing to do with each other. If Awp's theory is correct however, this will likely mean that Marduk, as we know him, will not be in Tekken 7.

Tekken 7 demo will be at Texas Showdown and Combo Breaker and will feature new characters despite recent theft of game keys

Just a few days ago the fighting game community, and to an even stronger degree the Tekken community, was stricken with an unfortunate situation wherein the MadCatz representatives attending Northwest Majors 7 were robbed.

Amongst the various items stolen were personal affects and MarkMan's laptop, which contained very private information about Tekken 7, which is still in development. This immediately sparked questions as to whether or not we'd see Tekken 7 demos at future majors.

Thankfully, MarkMan has updated us with some good news via Twitter. After the mad scramble to make the best of a poor situation, it seems as though the Tekken team will indeed be at future majors with a playable demo of the newest Tekken.

Harada: Tekken 7's Gigas has strong 50/50 mix-ups, isn't a character whose attacks you'd want to keep on blocking - EventHubs exclusive interview

On Sunday, Tekken Project leader Katsuhiro Harada unveiled a new character, Gigas, for Tekken 7 at the Nico Nico Chokaigi convention.

A trailer for the new character was shown during the broadcast, but as time was on the short side, Harada was not able to talk very much about the new character.

EventHubs's own Cheng-Kai "KarbyP" Sim was on location at Nico Nico Chokaigi, however, and after the broadcast he caught up with Harada for a brief interview on a number of topics surrounding Tekken 7.

In this first part of our interview with Katsuhiro Harada, the Tekken chief goes over Gigas in a little more detail, and explains why the new character is most likely "the most powerful" fighter in Tekken history.
