Home Versions of Tekken 7 Will Have VR Support
After presenting Tekken 7 at Paris Game Week, Bandai Namco also announced that the arcade fighter will be making its way to home systems. It is worth noting that the press release headline did not specifically state that the home port will be exclusive to the Playstation 4 (although it’s the only confirmed platform so far), so there are chances that it could be making its way to other consoles, which one – take your pick. There’s only a couple outside of Sony’s previous gen offerings.
The home port of Tekken 7 will include an in-depth story mode and according to the press release, will support Playstation VR.
