Tekken 7 is only a few days away from release, so Bandai Namco have released a further set of videos that give us an idea of the creative process involved.

The first of a series of Q&A sessions with developers Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray focusses on the Online Tournament mode, aimed more at newcomers to the series who don't feel ready to delve into ranked matches. Make sure to turn the closed captions on for the translations.

Then there is Unexpected Reactions, how fans will use techniques and strategies that never even occurred to the developers.

With a bigger roster than ever, character development becomes even more challenging. Developers face the need to create fighters that are not only interesting to look at, but balanced and usable by both beginners and experts. The following two videos shed more light on this process.


Finally we have the fourth character trailer, featuring both new and returning fighters in Master Raven, Sergei Dragunov, Lili, Asuka Kazama, Leo and Yoshimitsu.

Tekken 7 will be released on June 2nd.
