Interviews with Harada on Tutorial Mode, Tekken 7 Development and the Future

New interviews with the Tekken head producer Katsuhiro Harada surfaced recently on some gaming sites. The PushSquare & PC Games N's interviews with Harada go over some pretty interesting topics like the current development circumstances for Tekken 7 as well as some minor insights on what they're thinking of for the future of the series. The PGN interview mainly goes over the decision to not include a tutorial into the game but the PushSquare features a more extensive discussion. I'll be adding notable snippets from both below but feel free to read the source interviews in full over on their respective sites:

Team Spiritzero Interview with Echo Fox's JDCR & Saint

Last month, Team Spiritzero got the chance to sit down with Echo Fox's Tekken players JDCR and Saint for a really long interview detailling many topics. Since it was Korean interview though, most people may have missed out on tuning in and listening to what JDCR and Saint had to say but thanks to Genericremix on reddit, he tooks the time to translate and transcribe the entire interview into an online document you can read. This is really extensive work with the interview time going over 3 hours so major thanks goes out to that guy for the great job. Added below here is a small snippet about JDCR's Tekken character choices and the twitch archive but feel free to read the entire interview over here:

Tekken 7 Developer Q&A Video: Character Development

Make sure you put the subtitles on when you watch the video this time. Tekken 7 Developer Q&A video #2 is up and this one has Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray discuss what goes into Tekken 7's character development. They go over the several factors that contribute to creating new fighters such as what goals they plan to achieve with the character, what kind of character they should be whether it is a newbie friendly or complex character and the compatibility of the fighting style within the game. An interesting thought piece if you were curious on what were some of the brainstorming that went into designing some of your favorite characters. You can check out the Developer Q&A video below.
