Shortly before Bandai Namco revealed that Tekken 7 was slated to arrive on June 2, 2017, several NeoGAF users actually uncovered even more than the game’s then-unconfirmed release date. The investigative fans uncovered an early slip-up by a British retailer which revealed the contents of the Tekken 7 Deluxe Edition, which features bonuses that fall in line with confirmed pre-order bonuses for the game. Now, the Collector’s Edition has already been revealed.
The deluxe edition for Tekken 7 will include both the base game and the newly announced season pass, which will grant gamers access to many new fighters, stages, and costumes throughout three different content updates. The season pass will also bring a new game mode into play, although what this will actually have yet to be announced by Bandai Namco. It’s currently unknown when the season pass will begin introducing its three waves of content.
The Deluxe Edition reportedly also comes with two more playable characters and sports 30 metallic costumes for those who want to really test their mettle. Those who pre-order the title will also get the vampiric fighter Eliza added to their rosters. She was first introduced after winning a fan vote online and has since appeared only in Tekken Revolution.
Those who are interested in getting physical collector’s items for the game also have the option of picking up the aforementioned Tekken 7 Collector’s Edition, which comes with a bulky 12″x18″ Kazuya and Heihachi figurine, where the two are posed mid-battle. The collector’s edition also comes with a steel book, a collector’s box, the game itself, and the Tekken 7 original game soundtrack. The collector’s edition retails for $149.99, which is a substantial jump up from the $75 of the deluxe edition.
The latest Bandai Namco fighting title was actually announced about three years ago and has gone through a long development process which has seen the game feature a limited arcade release ahead of its jump to the current generation of consoles and PC. There’s plenty of signature roster characters returning to the fray, along with a selection of fresh faces. While not all of the new characters were well received, it’s good to see an already large roster keep on growing.
What do you think about the Tekken 7 deluxe and collector’s editions, Ranters? Will you be picking one of them up?
Tekken 7 is scheduled to launch on June 2, 2017, for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. An arcade edition of the game is available in Japan.
