Tekken 7 is one of the three games that Katsuhiro Harada has been working following the leaked information about game last week.

"The first thought that came into my head was 'It must have been Ono,'" Harada joked, referring to rival and Street Fighter boss Yoshinori Ono.

Harada also confirmed that Tekken 7 is being built on the Unreal Engine 4.

"With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it."

"Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it also allows us to bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire."

Taka Kawasaki, studio head at Epic Games Japan, recently discussed excitement for "Tekken 7" in a press release on Monday. Kawasaki said that the partnership between Bandai Namco and Epic Games is perfect for the next game because it will lead to great results and then he confirmed that Tekken 7 PC version will happen.

Taka Kawasaki said in an interview that Tekken 7 would come with greatly improved visuals which can only be done on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. He even singled out the Tekken 7 PC version because that was the lead platform during development.

In an interview with 4Gamer, Harada reflected on his career in 2013. "As part of being the leader in the development of multiple free-to-play titles, I was also involved in the efforts to change the structures of the console gaming industry with the first party group of SCE, I hope to keep this going into (2014) as well."

"Tekken is one of my life's works, and while I can't say much here, together with the titles we were going to announce this year, I'm also working on several other titles simultaneously with Tekken. From there, I'd like to announce at least two of those titles in 2014, and I feel that it's something I must do."

"There are a few titles that we've been quietly working on, and some we've been thinking about working on, so the year 2014 looks like it'll be a tough one."

Harada claimed that Tekken 7 will be released sometime in 2014 however, gaming news site Cyberland has reported that an insider from Namco Bandai game overheard a discussion between Harad and the other game developers that Tekken 7 is marked for 2015 as they felt that the needed more time to add new features in the game.

Further reports from gaming website Polygon claimed that Bandai Namco will have an open panel at the San Diego Comic Con 2014 and they promised fans they would reveal new details about Tekken 7 release date and Rise of Incarnates
