Bandai Namco have announced that Tekken 7's 'real' launch version of the game will be available a month after the pre-launch version: March 18th. This version of the game will have more content which includes Local offline play, training mode and perhaps the first batch of time release characters and stages. This launch version will also be available outside of Japan for other countries and regions that still have arcades so a wider amount of players will be able to finally get their hands on the game and play it. If you're an arcade owner, Namco is accepting orders for the Tekken 7 machines from now until the 26th of Feb with the game being activated on March 18th at 7:00 in the morning Japan time. Additionally, Bandai Namco has also opened a new Tekken 20th Anniversary website which counts down to the release of the game next month.
