What's next Harada: evolving the fighting game genre and Esports

It's that time of the year again where E3 takes place, and although there isn't anything new to present for the Tekken or SoulCalibur side of things, figureheads from Bandai Namco were in attendance once again to do an E3 coliseum panel with Geoff Keighley. The panel for this year is focused on the strengths of Fighting games in the Esports business, but similar to the interview from last year, Geoff is slightly awkward since he doesn't have a FG background and throws out his ideas on where they could go or evolve into that might not really resonate with those inside the community. Video archive of the 'Strength of Fighting Games in Esports' session is now available for people to catch up over on YouTube. I also have a written transcript of the panel added down below so feel free to read that if you want to skip most of the 'soooo, uhhh, anooo' air time.

Free DLC update incoming to celebrate Tekken 7's 2-year anniversary on PC and console

Reports are already coming in that a new update for Tekken 7 on PS4s is now available so get to it if you want to download some new customization items. Update Version 2.30 is here to celebrate the 2-year anniversary of Tekken 7 on 'home' platforms. The update as far as I know isn't available everywhere yet but the new customization goodies which include new character panel artwork and a new 'Prisoner' outfit for Negan should soon be in everyone's hands. This update does include character balance changes so perhaps expect them to be the same changes made in the recent Version E in Arcades. More details and images for Tekken 7's 2-year anniversary update will be added as they come in.

Tekken 7 Mod adds Darth Vader to the roster

Join the dark side with this new fan-made Tekken 7 mod on the PC that crosses Tekken with Star Wars. Available for download right now, the Darth Vader mod replaces Negan in the select screen and comes with the extras to make him feel like a real character in the game. The author of the mod; Bluewhite92, says that there's still some various things to touch and update but for the time being, the mod fully works and is playable. See it for yourself in the mod's preview trailer and DeviantArt page:

Harada Elaborates on his Hesitation to Release Tekken X Street Fighter

It's becoming 'harder to justify' the release of Tekken X Street Fighter, Harada tells VGC. This might not be something that fans who have been waiting since the title's initial announcement back in 2010 wants to hear but the hesitancy to get the game produced can be attributed to the current market for Fighting Games. "Capcom released Street Fighter V and then we released Tekken 7. Those titles are some of the best fighting games ever and they became very successful. [...] So then I started to wonder, do I really want to attempt to compete with these huge titles? It could end up splitting the community. That was a serious consideration from the marketing perspective." Harada still reaffirms his own desire in working on Tekken X Street Fighter mentioning he still has the passion and excitement in carrying out the project should it ever get the green light. Since we're at the tail-end of this current console hardware generation, perhaps waiting this out to release on the next generation of video game console which is expected next year is the current best course of action for the game. You can read further comments from Harada about Tekken X Street Fighter over at VGC's report:
