Tekken 7 For Nintendo Switch Will Depend On Fan Demand

Tekken 7 For Nintendo Switch Will Depend On Fan Demand

Tekken 7 was initially released back in 2015. The game eventually made its way onto the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. However last year some were wondering about whether or not the game could eventually make its way onto the Nintendo Switch, in which the game’s director Katsuhiro Harada said that we shouldn’t expect it anytime soon.

For those wondering if Bandai Namco’s stance has changed a year later, unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case. According to Harada, he claims that Tekken 7 arriving on the Nintendo Switch will largely be dependent on the demand for it, where gamers will have to let them know if they want the game ported onto Nintendo’s console, otherwise there is a good chance that nothing will happen.

Here is a fan-created 3D model of what the Xperia XZ2 Compact may look like

To say that there has been an adverse reaction to the recent Xperia XZ2 Compact prototype picture we posted, is a bit of an understatement. It remains to be seen what the final product will look like, but we believe that the picture is representative of the final version. Anyway, this is only one angle of the phone, and perhaps the most unflattering one, so we can understand the reaction.

Lego Fan Builds Awesome Nissan GT-R Nismo Replica

If you like cars and Lego, then the brand’s Speed Champions sets are perfect for you, but since only a handful are available, your favorite car may not be offered by the toy company.

If you’re as talented as well-known Lego builder Firas Abu-Jaber, then that’s no problem for you. His favorite car is an R35 Nissan GT-R, but instead of waiting for Lego to produce a kit of the GT-R, he built one himself. His replica, which is actually of the track prepped Nismo GT-R, looks fairly accurate with the low, flat rear wing, circular taillights, and large front grille. The interior is fairly spot-on as well with red and black trim and even a little navigation screen.
