At EVO 2014, Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada, officially said Tekken 7 is in development, confirming the leak that happened earlier in the day.


Harada showed a short teaser trailer for the game and that more information would be coming July 25, 2014, at San Diego Comic-Con.

The trailer opens with with a view of Heihachi's residence (subsequently Jin's in Tekken 5), the Mishima estate, and shows a woman named Kazumi, who's heavily implied to be Kazuya's mother/Heihachi's lover.

What's even more curious about Harada's announcement is that Tekken 7 was not originally going to be the game he was planning to reveal today.

The Tekken series producer and game director suggested that the original plan was to reveal one of the other unannounced titles he had been working on, but that since the news about Tekken 7 had been leaked, he had to change it to this one.

Harada also said that he did not have a trailer prepared for Tekken 7, and had to run back to his hotel to prepare something from the footage he had this very morning, when he woke up to news of the leak.

You can view the trailer for yourself below.

There's a quick glimpse of what appears to be Devil Jin in the trailer, here's a screen capture.
