During the new year live broadcast, Bandai Namco Tekken 7 Director Katsuhiro Harada mentioned how he was probably working on the Japanese company’s “Most Expensive Development Project” Start.
Harada himself couldn’t even believe that the top executives of the company gave her the green light. Here’s the translation, courtesy of Gematsu:
“Well, honestly I think this might be the most expensive development project in Bandai Namco history. I think it’s unbelievable that the presidents agreed to this. Well, approval passed, it’s just because of the coronavirus, we really couldn’t start the project properly.” .
While a new Tekken or any other fighter would be an obvious guess, the veteran developer mentions how he doesn’t think he will do a fighting game other than Tekken, and notes how he’s currently working on games that aren’t fighters at all.
“I am developing things other than fighting games. I don’t think I will do any other fighting game other than Tekken. But I will not say what this project is at this stage. “
So, any guesses about what this project might be like? Oh, and if you’re reading Mr. Harada, We still hope to see a Tekken 7 port for the Nintendo Switch.
