Tekken 7’s Alisa Bosconovitch looks like a woman, but she is certainly a robot. So recently, a confused player asked Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada why, despite being synthetic, Alisa’s breasts bounce.
Tekken 7 doesn’t have an in-game tutorial. Players new to Tekken games will find themselves losing for the wrong reasons. It’s not because they need to practice the game’s subtle mechanics—it’s because they won’t know those subtle mechanics exist in the first place. This creates a massive knowledge gap between new …
Tekken 7 player Bronson Tran lived up to his nickname “the mouth of NorCal” this past Wednesday night when he received and rejected the MVP prize at E3’s Twitch Esports Arena invitational.

Early on in Tekken 7’s story mode, I’m told to throw Heihachi’s five-year-old son off a cliff. It’s canon in the Tekken series, typically a drama saved for cut scenes. Here, it’s flippant—push the square and triangle buttons and, buh-bye, kid.
