There are some games in which the storyline isn’t as important as the gameplay. For example games like Call of Duty or Battlefield don’t really need to have a fully fleshed out backstory full of lore and history for it to be fun, and neither do arcade Fighting Games, although we guess it would be nice if players knew the character’s background story a bit more.
The good news for Tekken 7 gamers is that according to Bandai Namco, the company has promised that they will be creating a proper single-player experience for gamers. This means that if you want to learn more about the story and the characters, Bandai Namco will not be neglecting that aspect of the game.
According to Bandai Namco Games America Brand Manager Mark Religioso who spoke to DualShockers, “What we’re kinda seeing now with the trends in fighting games, is that fans want more than the core fighting experience, they also want a full fleshed-out single player experience, which is why we’re pursuing story mode so hard in this game. We’re really integrating it in a special way where it goes from in-game cinematics to actual gameplay with a lot of dialogue between characters, so you can really experience and feel that story.”
