The Twitter account for the game also announced on Saturday that the game is getting a new Online Tournament mode that allows players to fight against other players worldwide.

Bandai Namco Entertainment released an arcade update for Tekken 7 titled Tekken 7: Fated Retribution on July 5 in Japan. The update includes a graphics update as well as a new system, new stages, new costumes, new items, and new characters. Bandai Namco Entertainment added Akuma (Gōki) from CAPCOM's Street Fighter games and Nina Williams as playable characters in the update.
Tekken 7: Fated Retribution will be the basis for the game's eventual launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the PC in the West in early 2017, and in spring 2017 in Japan. Lee Chaolan, Violet, and Miguel are also joining the roster for the home console release of the game.
