Have you ever been punched in the face? It hurts. A lot. Heck, even catching your shin on a coffee table is enough to reduce most of us to a cussing mess. Which is why we'll leave the muscular fighting to the likes of Tekken's shimmering new cast.
Having whipped fanboys into a minor frenzy with announcements that the game will include region-exclusive characters (US gamers will be missing out on Lucky Chloe, a break dancing, cat-loving enigma), the latest trailer has help pour some cold water on the angrier corners of the internet with a taste of the pretty violence to come.
Filled with astonishing levels of detail, the fighting zones of the new instalment are almost pretty enough to distract from the manic fighting. Almost. The action is fluid, the impacts jarring and the finishing power moves look immensely satisfying.
Headed to arcades in February 2015, it's yet to be revealed as to which consoles Tekken 7 will be arriving on. Whichever system it lands on, we'll be mashing every button in the hope of landing a hit.
