“In typical story modes in other fighting games, you merely load the game, each character says one or two lines to each other before the battle, then you go into the standard battle with the timer from the same position all the time. All the same rules apply from them fighting, we tried to change that,” Harada stated.
He continued that some cinematic shift will also be featured in the “Tekken 7” gameplay itself.
“All these things were done to make the game feel very immersive. Whatever is going on in the cinematics shifts straight into the in-game scene, and then straight into the gameplay itself. You’re not thrown into the standard battle. That’s really what we focus on changing this time for story mode.” The producer added.
