    new wrestler character FTW :)

    too bad Daisuke Gōri(VA of Heihachi Mishima from Tekken 1-6) died this year, so sad. you can tell Heihachi’s voice is different. i am intrigued with the new stages the christmas and paradise stage are awesome :D

    • Hate to correct u, but Gori started voicing Heihachi in Tekken 3. But yeah, I actually like the new younger Heihachi, and I like the stages here more than 6’s stages. lol

  • Dude, I hope it comes to consoles, it looks hot!

    • Harada said on twitter that it is coming to consoles. it is said that it may be released between SF X TK and TK VS SF but seeing this trailer and how far along it is im hoping for a Holiday 2011 since the arcade version is coming in the summer

  • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

    …Ok now make everyone 10 years younger now to equalize it.

    EDIT: Oh man, new character? Wrestler?! Female!?! It just gets better! Dang I thought I lost interest in Tekken but this trailer does such a good job of hyping up!

  • joesz

    Yay! Wolverine is in Tekken.

    • puchinri

      Oh gosh, if he has a healing factor, I know where this will lead online.
      (Not that people don’t abuse Heihachi if not Lars as it is.)

  • New female luchadore? Awesome!!! Didn’t expect a new character to be revealed so soon so I’m happy! Hope they have at least 2-3 more along with some old characters that haven’t been in any recent Tekken games.

    And I’m loving the backgrounds in here….they’re really fresh looking and very vibrant….reminds me of the SC series alittle. I thought T6’s bg were okay(kinda liked T5’s better) but none of them really wowed me like these do. Can’t wait to see more of this and maybe some of TxSF.

      is luchadora

    As a hair aficionado I really appreciate what young Heihachi has done with his hair, the Felix the Cat thing is totally working for him.

  • MGSBigBoss

    WTF Where is my damn Jin footage?! Idgaf about Kazuya and Heihachi

  • I’m loving the younger Heihachi, very cheesey and pointy (pointy hair, eyebrows and moustache all in sync). Tekken Tag Tournament 2 looks promising!

  • thebanditking

    This actually looks really…….good….I am amazed, especially after Tekken 6 was so ho hum. I really hope this entry turns out as good ans this trailer makes it look, I still think Namco has some talent left (no soul) but they will have to work to make that show in the products again. Hopefully the recent corporate changes will allow them to return to what they once were, as I miss my Tales, Ridge Racer and Klonoa games.

    Those Mishimas really need to work those family problems out

    • Code

      The best families are the ones with problems! And by best I mean most interesting.

  • puchinri

    As if I wasn’t excited enough. That new character looks nicely designed~. And young Heihachi is interesting. Him and Kazuya just bumping each other is somehow fun (kind of like Lili and Asuka rejecting a tag team-up). Now I just want to see a video with Jun. And her and Kazuya (and Jin) interacting.
    …You know you want to do it Harada…

  • I hope they put Tekken4 Jin in there!! meh got bored with Tekken6 but they gonna need to nerf the air combo if theyre gonna have tag ins!!

  • mumakurau

    Wow, Heihachi’s looking pretty awesome.

    @ 00:38: Wait, WHAT!? PIME TARADOX!!!!
