The gaming world went a little bit nuts over the weekend, as a new trailer dropped for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, and with it, both the firm confirmation of a console release, and the reveal of Akuma from Street Fighter as a guest character.
With some questions still remaining, Tekken 7 Director and Producer Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter to provide some more answers. Firstly, he confirmed that the consoles would receive the latest version of the game available, but didn’t confirm whether that would be Fated Retribution or another title entirely.

Secondly, Harada confirmed that Akuma is not the only character making an appearance in Tekken 7, though he’s likely to be the only guest character.
Yep. Of course TEKKEN character. Plz wait for next information. See you next year! RT@Funtroon Can we expect more characters to be revealed?

Harada also confirmed that the new costumes shown in the trailer are actually new default outfits, and that the game will be received an overall graphical update, fighting models included. What hasn’t been confirmed, however, is whether Akuma will be coming to consoles, specifically Xbox One. With Street Fighter becoming a Sony exclusive franchise, we can’t assume that Akuma will be hitting the Shun Goku Satsu on a Microsoft Console. Fingers crossed, though.
