Tekken 7 Season 4 was officially released on November 10th. Players will finally be able to experience Kunimitsu and all the balance adjustments – including new moves for all characters – after this patch drops.
However, some players have apparently been granted access to Tekken 7 Season 4 earlier than November 10. On Twitter, Bandai Namco Nordics announced that TheMainManSWE will be streaming Season 4 content exclusively ( storage after jumping). “‘MASKU!” – The self-proclaimed ‘Mozart of #TEKKEN’ will go live on Twitch.tv with an exclusive look at Season Pass 4! Bandai Namco said. Fans have been promised a glimpse of Kunimitsu, the new phase, the buffs, the nerfs, and the new moves.
It seems that some players have been given exclusive access to Tekken 7 Season 4 prior to its release. Although this gives the community an early look at upcoming content, many members expressed dissatisfaction with this.
One could argue that granting early access to big names in the community could harm smaller content creators. For those who stream on YouTube and Twitch, the release of new content in games like Tekken 7 offers an opportunity to expand viewership.
“Namco doesn’t deserve the free advertising they get from its creators,” Aris said. “Developers need to realize that games are nothing without players, creators, commentators and tournaments. I think I’ll wait for Tekken 8. Maybe then they’ll have a clue on how. processing content. “
When asked if he would change his stance if given the code, Aris said he doesn’t even want early access.
Shaun Rivera said: “Tekken 7 Season 4 is limited to only a handful of content creators. “The player’s inability to participate in the discovery phase, especially when a new character, new moves, and an entire balance overhaul happened, was a big mistake. “
“I was really looking forward to my Kunimitsu stream when she released, searching for items with her, matching and introducing her with my character Tekken Tag Tournament 2,” UYU | Says Fergus. “Now the hype is completely gone, this has been taken away by me, I will still stream her and hope we can still have a little fun.”
“I’m really sad about this, my YT is slowly growing, this will be my big foray on YT because maybe I’m in the best position to do Kunimitsu content since I’ve played so many rounds. on Tekken Tag 2, “continued on Fergus. “I’ll post them anyway, but my motivation has died down a lot.”
Some players like EQNX | Joey Fury doesn’t seem to mind some players will be entering Season 4 anytime soon, but still believes Bandai Namco should release patch notes. “I don’t mind too much about some people having early access to the S4, but … Let’s release FFS PATCH NOTES!”
In the end, Katsuhiro Harada revealed that he had nothing to do with the decision to grant exclusive access to several content creators in Europe.
“It was a terrible pointless activity,” Harada said. “I don’t understand the European team’s marketing sense. Also, you should stop thinking that I am giving some guidance to all parts of the world from 1 to 100 like God.”
Is having exclusive early access to some players a good way for Bandai Namco to give the community a peek or is it a bad call? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
