Whether this will be the next canon game in the series, Tekken 8, or another spin-off like Tekken Tag Tournament 3 remains to be seen. There's only one thing we know for sure: more Tekken is coming. The trailer, which you can see embedded above, shows series mainstay and Smash Bros. interloper, Kazuya Mishima, in his ending from the original Tekken. We get to see him drop his unloving, sociopathic father, Heihachi, off a cliff – and then a snatch of static segues into the 'current' version of Kazuya (complete with red eye and scar) in nice, crisp, modern graphics. "GET READY", the trailer instructs us.

During the fighting game championship, a clip showed the infamous Kazuya ending of the original Tekken in which he gets revenge on his father Heihachi by dropping him off a cliff. Instead of ending when the camera zooms in on his smile, there's a blur of static and his face is replaced by an older, scarred version of Kazuya with the red eye he gained in Tekken 4.

This will be a dedicated live show running alongside the show August 5 - 6 that will present new game and DLC reveals, as well as curated highlights from the tournament itself. If you’re more interested in the big reveals than the hours upon hours of excellent competition, this is for you. According to an official PlayStation blog post, the live show “will feature top-shelf curated show coverage, bracket updates, interviews with players, and exciting content and reveals from developers and publishers". We know that Warner Bros, Arc System Works, Capcom, SNK, and Bandai Namco will be present. So, what is actually going to be shown off? While we don’t know for sure, recent events as well as the current fighting game landscape can help us make some educated guesses. The most obvious of which is Street Fighter 6, which was revealed earlier this year during a PlayStation showcase. With only five of the cast revealed (not via leaks), it’s likely that at least one new character will be shown at the show.

Thousands gather in Vegas and millions watch at home as champions are crowned for each of the fighting game community’s top games. EVO is one of the largest eSports events and with its fighting game tournament closing each year with Street Fighter, there has never been a question about which game is considered the favorite amongst the community. However, that might not be the case for much longer with the recent release of Tekken 7. The latest in the Tekken franchise recently debuted on Steam with a higher number of peak players than Street Fighter V’s launch. This month, Tekken 7 peaked at 18,743 players, while Street Fighter V’s debut in February 2016 peaked 28% lower at 14,155 players. [caption id="attachment_270927" align="aligncenter" width="800"] Tekken 7's Average Players per Hour on Steam via GitHyp[/caption] The playerbase differential is especially impressive given Tekken’s player base is split between PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, while SFV is only available on PS4 and PC. Despite Tekken being the more technical of the two games, many Street Fighter veterans and newcomers have made the switch. Street Fighter V’s players have been critical of Capcom’s lack of communication and frequent server outages for maintenance and it seems Bandai Namco took notice with their first Tekken 7 patch and notes arriving only a week after launch. SFV has seen an 84% drop in players on Steam since its launch, but with EVO 2017 in only two months it might be too late for Tekken 7 to bring the fight for the top spot at the show. But, with continued support Tekken 7 could dethrone Street Fighter in 2018. Capcom still has an ace up their sleeve with the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite set for release later this year, however, Namco already has a counter for Marvel planned with the recently announced Dragon Ball FighterZ. Namco's DBZ debut at E3 2017 seems to already be winning over MVC fans, which isn't good news for Capcom.
