Tekken 7’s Season 4 is coming later this fall with improvements to online play, new character moves, and the returning Kunimitsu.

The team at Bandai Namco has had a lot to say and a lot to reveal through the weekend’s Tokyo Game Show. Among the items on the agenda is the future of Tekken 7, which has grand plans for its upcoming Season 4 of content.

For several weeks in the spring, office professionals banded together to adjust to a new way of living and working online. But as weeks of remote work have stretched into months, it’s becoming clear the toxic environment sometimes housed in office cubicles and shared break rooms is moving into workers’ homes, too.
