More images of Kuma, Panda and new Online Tournament Mode in Tekken 7

Only recently were both Kuma and Panda revealed for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, and we found at the same time that the game will feature an Online Tournament Mode.

We've discovered a gallery of new images for Kuma and Panda along with some new screen shots and text for Online Tournament Mode on Famitsu and the official Tekken Japan website.

Here's what we were able to translate from the Japanese text:

"The "online tournament" that you can play with up to 8 people also supports double elimination. While waiting for the tournament, watching can be done while chatting other player's battle."

Knee and Kari's Tekken 7 tier lists are noticeably different, both have contrasting opinions on Akuma, Law and a few others

EVO 2016 Tekken 7 second place finisher, Knee, and top Japanese Yoshimitsu player Kari have both come forward with a tier list for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution.

The surprising part? These two lists don't look very similar at all. They agree that Xiaoyu belongs in the top three and match up on some characters in the middle lump, but where Kari feels Akuma is A+ tier, Knee feels he is one of the two worst fighters in the game.

Where Knee feels Law is amongst the game's strongest, Kari places him in the third tier of fighters. Take a look at both tier lists and let us know who you agree with more and why in the comments

'Akuma is actually part of the story and the game--not just the backstory' - Harada talks Akuma in Tekken 7's Story Mode

While Tekken 7 has technically been around for about a year and a half, fans of the series are still waiting for early next year to come so they can get their hands on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions.

We've watched this game develop over the last year with new characters trickling in, and occasional hands-on experiences at various fighting game major events.

The most shocking reveal for T7 thus far has to be the inclusion of Street Fighter mainstay: Akuma. The demonic fighter has an air of charisma about him in just about every game he ventures to, which are many, and will be much more than a guest in the latest Tekken.

Gamespot sat down with Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada to get a few more details on the game and its shocking guest character.

The producer of Tekken wants to make his own Samurai Shodown game: SNK, please let Katsuhiro Harada bring it back!

Back in April, TecMundo Games caught up with Tekken Producer Katsuhiro Harada and Game Designer Michael Murray to discuss the game's latest installment, Fated Retribution. For fun, their editor Guilherme Sarda asked both Bandai Namco representatives which fighting game not made by their company is their favorite.

Hardada noted that his favorite fighter is actually SNK's title, Samurai Shodown, while Murray chose Garou: Mark of Wolves.

Because of Harada's answer nearly seven months ago, Sarda decided to revisit the topic with Harada at the King of the Iron Fist tournament earlier this week.

Harada was asked if there is any chance that Bandai Namco would be willing to do some sort of crossover with SNK to feature Samurai Shodown characters in one of their games, much like we've seen with Capcom's Akuma in Tekken 7 most recently.

It looks like Harada's idea for Samurai Shodown extends beyond a simple collaboration.

'I think [Diddy Kong] is top 3 in the game' - Justin Wong considers playing King of Fighters 14, Tekken 7, and Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U in 2017

Justin Wong is best known for his incredible talent in fighting games. In particular, he tends to be among the best players when it comes to Capcom games such as the Street Fighter series or Marvel vs. Capcom series. Particularly in the American scene.

When asked what fighting games he would play in 2017 outside of Street Fighter 5 if he had to play another game, he listed off King of Fighters 14, Tekken 7, and Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U. In particular, he went over the reasons why he would play Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U over Super Smash Bros. Melee.

Justin mentioned that he would want to play Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U over Super Smash Bros. Melee because Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U is simpler than Super Smash Bros. Melee. Super Smash Bros. Melee is a lot more advanced and requires a great deal more time and dedication to be good at it.

Justin mentions that if you wanted to play Melee professionally you would have to, for the most part, only focus on that game to be good at it. Justin would still want to play other fighters other than Melee.
