We do know a few details about the game's upcoming specs, which are surely a welcome (and expected) feature by all gamers in this modern industry. Gaming platforms such as Sony's PlayStation 4, Microsoft's Xbox One and, of course, gaming PC rigs, have evolved much since the first Tekken title was released on arcade stations 20 years ago.
As such, there's a certain level of game performance that players usually expect from current and future titles, like richly detailed textures, visually appealing graphics and overall, an optimized gameplay made to utilize the most of a gaming platform's potential.
For the upcoming ninth installment in the Tekken lineage, players will be glad to know that Bandai Namco has built the game to make full use of the capabilities of current-gen consoles specifically, or at the very least, the max stable settings consoles can provide. Running a graphic-heavy and action-packed game in 4K while still producing a constant frame rate of 60fps is still a bit unreliable at this point for current consoles; PS Neo and Xbox Scorpio will soon remedy this in near future.
But getting back to how awesome Tekken 7's upcoming features are, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed in a Twitter exchange that the released title will run in 1080p and a frame rate of 60fps. The question he answered, however, solely asked about the game's performance on PS4 platforms specifically. It is unclear if the same settings will apply to Xbox One consoles.
We have reason to believe that this is highly unlikely. If you've been playing on the Xbox One for some time now, you'd know that some games usually sacrifice either resolution or frame rate in favor of the other, or in other cases, scenes encounter some noticeable scaling to keep the graphics running smooth. Some examples previously featured by our reports are comparisons between PS4 and Xbox One versions of Tom Clancy's The Division and Doom.
In any case, a beautiful game running at max settings is definitely preferred, sure, but what's the point if there's no game to begin with? The important thing is that Bandai Namco is releasing Tekken 7 into our homes, instead of just arcade stations, and everyone's been excited for a very (very) long time.
