Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada announced today during the Japanese Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable that Tekken 7 will be receiving a fourth season. This will include new moves for all characters and online play enhancements.

Though further details were sparse, the announcement trailer did feature a distant view of a character at the very end. You can view images from the trailer below.

Harada continued on with some discussion after the showcase, sharing that Tekken 7 will soon be getting a Wi-Fi indicator when playing online. This means players will be able to identify the type of connections (Wi-Fi or hard-wired) their opponents are using.

We don't know much more when it comes to improvements to the online play, but netcode and online experiences becoming such a priority for fighting game fans in recent times.

Harada explained that Bandai did some closed betas with rollback code and the results have been good so far, saying that the update will provide a much better online experience.

He went on to say that the development team had actually planned to have Season 4 content ready already, but that delays due to COVID-19 have made that impossible.

Previous passes have brought with them new characters, new game modes, mechanics, stages, costumes, and more. They have traditionally cost between $25-$30 to purchase in full, though much of the content is sold a la carte as well.

Bandai Namco is also planning on having online tournaments weekends in September through December for both Tekken 7 and Soul Calibur 6. You can see a brief schedule for these in the sixth image of the gallery below.

Here are a handful of stills as well as the trailer via GamersPrey.
