TekkenGamer's Interview with Katsuhiro Harada

Tekken 7's chief producer Katsuhiro Harada breaks the long silence in a new interview conducted by the TekkenGamer crew. With the initial Tekken 7 content roadmap having been completed a long awhile ago, the comments made in this interview together with the recent 1 year anniversary content drop for the game at least reaffirms that the title hasn't been abandoned for people pining for more. Other notable mentions made in the interview are about Noctis' inclusion in the game, on Kazuma Kiryu's inclusion, a small status update for the dormant Tekken X Street Fighter title and more. This interview makes for some interesting insight behind the title so be sure to check out the piece in full over on TekkenGamer:

Bandai Namco Brand Manager on Soul Calibur 6 Esports: 'You Need to Make a Good Game First'

PAX East is taking place this weekend and more and more attendees are trying their hands on the new Soul Calibur game. Darrian P. Mack from the Leaderboard is one of the lucky few to make it out to PAX East and score an interview about Soul Calibur 6 with the Bandai Namco Brand Manager Mark Religioso. While a lot of the interview mainly focuses on introducing the game to people and seeing if he can get a quick confirmation or tease on some missing character inclusions (spoilers: he failed lol), Mark was able to detail their current stance and focus with the game at it's current stage of development."You need to make a good game first and then the community comes out and supports it. If they want like an Esports type of execution or program then we can do that." Mark goes on to say that the current focus on SC6's development is really solid gameplay. Hard to disagree there and should be hopeful for the casual playing audience since it's reassurance that they're not compromising on the single player content for the sake of Esports. You can check out the full interview from PAX East over on the Leaderboard's YouTube channel.

It's Up to Harada if You Want to See Kazuma Kiryu in Tekken Says Yakuza Game Producer

Going by the Yakuza general game producer Daisuke Sato on the recent Yakuza 6 Gallery interview, they're open to the idea of having Kazuma Kiryu in Tekken but Bandai Namco and Tekken's Katsuhiro Harada have the final say. Fans of Kiryu really seem into the idea of the inclusion after Tekken has been on a crossover frenzy with Street Fighter's Akuma, Fatal Fury's Geese Howard and Final Fantasy XV's Noctis appearing in Tekken 7. You can see it in the room while the question is asked too, I'm sure Kiryu would fit like a glove in Tekken but so far no news on additional content for Tekken 7 beyond the season pass has been mentioned. If anything, at least the idea is on the table. You can find Daisuke Sato's comments about the character in Tekken over on the stream archive:

Kayane's Interview with Soul Calibur 6 Producer Motohiro Okubo from EVO Japan

The EVO Japan interview Kayane conducted with the Soul Calibur 6 producer Motohiro Okubo has now gone live over on Kayane's website. It makes for a pretty lengthy and interesting look as to where Soul Calibur 6 is at in this time in terms of development. There's also plenty of Kayane gushing over the new Soul Calibur game so she got to ask a lot about characters in the roster, ideas for guest characters, gameplay modes and a lot more. I'll be adding some snippets from the interview below but you can read the entire piece over on Kayane's website:
