Dubbed "Rage and Sorrow," the latest installment in the famed fighting series will feature the ongoing feud between Heihachi Mishima and his demon son Kazuya. Such daddy issue was also depicted in one of the announcement trailers where Heihachi can be seen kicking the younger Kazuya right in the face.  

The said video has irked quite a number of viewers including some of the fans. Nonetheless, most of the fandom are very much delighted with the news about the game.   

It is expected that most of the fighters will be back in the upcoming title. Back in October 2016, the Spanish powerhouse Miguel Caballero will be back in the game alongside other combatants like Bob, Master Raven, Lee Chaolan, and Nina Williams, according to Digital Spy.  

Akuma/Gouki from Capcom will also join in with the scuffle albeit the fact that he has long-ranged attacks. It can be remembered that such new made other players worry about the advantage it could bring whenever this character comes into play.  

Meanwhile, the horned lady vamp - Eliza will also be back in the game. However, the fighter will be a pre-order exclusive which might frustrate some players.  

It is also worth mentioning that the game used the Unreal Engine 4 graphics suite. This could be one of the reasons why the supposed early 2017 release of the game wash pushed back to a later date which is June 2, Hexus has learned.  

Aside from the pre-order exclusive, players can also avail of the game's Deluxe Edition that consists of a unique game mode, exclusive costumes, special characters, and metallic costumes as part of its "Season Pass." Moreover, a Collector's Edition will also be rolled out in June containing the game, its soundtrack, a steel book and a so-called aerial figure featuring both Heihachi and Kazuya.  

Here are a couple of announcement trailers that were recently released for "Tekken 7: Rage and Sorrow:"
