Before we get on with the Tekken 7 tier list, let me introduce the Tekken 7 first. Tekken 7 is the latest part of the whole Tekken franchise. It was introduced in 2017 and since then it has gain popularity more than any other game of the series.
In summary, ‘Tekken 7‘ is a remarkable installment that has not known how to shine with the force it should. There are absences that hurt and the implementation of the Rage Art is very controversial. But it is also true that the new faces fit very well here and it is still a highly enjoyable ‘Tekken’ that is pleasing its fans.
What changes does it bring for Tekken 7 characters?
It starts right where the Tekken 6 ends. Every follower of ‘Tekken’ knows what Heihachi is like: a cruel villain who did not hesitate to kill his wife and who made life impossible for Kazuya as a child, to the point of throwing him off a cliff.
Given this situation, this seventh chapter of the main plot features an exceptional guest, Akuma, an essential part of the development of the story and the reason for the resurrection of Kazumi Mishima. And as we saw in distant 2015, with its arcade presentation, it has returned to life in an exceptional demonic state. Because the Mishima / Kazama family is special.
If ‘Tekken 7’ can stand out in this regard, it is in explaining better than ever what the hell is going on with this family clan that refuses to die and in which everyone hates each other to death.
All thanks to a story mode in an episodic format that mixes much cinematics generated with the game engine with real combats. The transition between the two is quite good. Quite striking duels will also take place.
Except for three fights where we will have a really bad time, the story will be a transition mode in which we will spend more time watching videos than playing. But that you get to enjoy quite a bit, mainly because of the plot around Heihachi and his family.
Another theme is the so-called “Character Episodes”, with unique and prefixed battles between those fighters who have no (or relevant) weight in the Mishima family. It is as if it were a shortcut to the classic Arcade mode in which we later unlocked a cinematic. But here in a simpler way.
The new Tekken 7 characters debuting for the first time in the franchise
Tekken 7′ has a staff of 37 fighters, of which eight are completely new. There are notable absences, but also fewer clones and the new additions represent a breath of fresh air, Lucky Chloe.
Everyone, from the otaku to the Gigas, through Claudio Serafino, Josie Rizal, Katarina Alves, Master Raven, Shaheen, and the usual Kazumi Mishima, fit perfectly into this installment. Although only a few manage to excel, really, like the aforementioned Lucky Chloe or Katarina Alves. We have divided all of these Tekken 7 characters in the Tekken 7 tier list mentioned below.
Rage Art, the system that will lift more blisters
Rage Art technique is introduced in the highest playable level of Tekken 7. It is a technique that we will be able to activate when we have little life left and that will kill nearly half of the opponent’s bar after a combo.
Its use is extremely simple (two fists), and we can even program a button to automatically execute it when the time comes. In any case, due to its simplicity and immediacy, it is a resource that the least seasoned in the saga will be able to handle.
Concerning Rage Art, there is the Rage Drive, also very powerful but difficult to execute. While using Power Crush we will be able to absorb part of the damage to hit the opponent with more force. This technique can only be done through very few movements that must be memorized from Practice mode.
