Nobi and Tokido battle on new Tekken 7: Fated Retribution stage ‘Mishima Building’
While E3 was taking place in Los Angeles, in Japan a special Tekken 7: Fated Retribution press conference and exhibition was taking place on June 14th. When Tekken 7FR was first announced with the addition of Akuma, Bandai Namco had MasterCup world champion Nobi faceoff against one of the worlds most fierce Akuma players, Tokido (who is also a pro Street Fighter player). Well, now that a new build of Tekken 7FR is on the horizon, set to release in Japanese arcades on July 5th, they have faced off once again.
In this showdown we get to see them battle on a new stage called Mishima Building. The stage starts off on an elevator platform that has robotic arms that grab the surrounding walls and climbs up it until it reaches the rooftop. The rooftop is reminiscent of the Tekken 6 stage Lightning Storm, which is a fan favorite. So we’re glad to see Harada and his team bring this back and in a very cool fashion.
Take a look at the action.
Lastly, here’s a screenshot of the stage.
