There is still no exact from Japanese game developer Bandai Namco on the release date of the highly popular video game franchise Tekken 7 on the Xbox One and the PS4 platforms. However, fans of the video game were given some hints that game director Katsuhiro Harada will make an important announcement on the release date during next month's Tokyo Game Show 2015.

The much-anticipated Tokyo Game Show 2015 will be held from September 17 - 20 and there were reports that Bandai Namco, reported Christian Today. To recall, Bandai Namco used the same event last year to announce the introduction of a new character Catalina from the game's official roster.

Many loyal fans of the video fighting game are hoping that Bandai Namco will again use the event to make a major announcement on the release an Xbox One and PS4 versions of Tekken 7.

However, some reports have doused cold waters into this expectation and claimed Harada is focused in developing new features for Tekken 7 and will not be making any new announcement for new generation consoles for the popular fighting game.

Reports said that Harada wants to incorporate an online play for the arcade version of Tekken 7 if there is enough demand for such feature. During the Game Developers Conference event a few months ago, Bandai Namco released a trailer showing off a possible version for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 although no official release date is coming from the company as of yet.
