Tekken 7 is not available on Nintendo Switch so when a recent comment from the Tekken 7 producer made it sound like Bandai Namco will only port the game if there is demand from fans, it was bound to start some controversy.
Bandai Namco has supported the Nintendo Switch with games like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Deluxe, but most felt like they were late ports. Tekken 7 is a game that utilizes Unreal Engine 4 however, it is technically ambitious, something that can be seen with the game running at a measly resolution of 720p on the Xbox One.
Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has now clarified that his comment on the Nintendo Switch was misinterpreted and it was not about the fan demand but rather the limitations of Unreal Engine 4.
Nintendo Switch is getting the next Mortal Kombat 11 which also uses Unreal Engine 4, but there is no SoulCalibur 6 or Tekken 7 port available for Nintendo Switch. After Mortal Kombat 11 was announced, this made some users hopeful to see the same from these two fighting games, but as it stands, this likely isn’t going to happen any time soon.
Tekken 7 has just received it second season pass with guest characters like Negan from The Walking Dead and many of the returning cast from the previous games like Lei, Marduck and Armor King.
