Katsuhiro Harada, creator of the Tekken series and game director of Tekken 7, has said we can expect the latest chapter of the saga of the Mishima family and its ongoing Heihachi woes this year, but did not give a specific date.

Busy little Twitter bee that he is, Harada-san engaged his fans one on one after the release of the latest trailer, embedded below. It seems to hint that Heihachi murdered his wife Kazumi for having the Super Devil gene, and passing it on to their son Kazuya, who ends the trailer by confronting his father on the same hellish volcano Heihachi was thrown into at the end of Tekken II. It is not yet known whether Kazumi will be a playable character or perhaps a boss.

Meanwhile, Taka Kawasaki, head of Epic Studios Japan, confirmed to Korean site kdramastars that not only was a PC version happening, it would be the "leading one" thanks to the Unreal Engine 4.

Jun Kazama was of course already a featured player in Tekken Tag Team Tournament 2, but that was not part of the canon series. Tekken 7 sees the actual return of the woman who's been missing in action since before Tekken 3, brutally slain by Ogre. However, whatever Ogre is carrying in that screenshot up there - it's not Jun's head, Harada-san confirmed on Twitter.
