Tekken producer offers up coy statement on potential for Tekken 7 on Switch

Coming from a GameSpot interview with Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada...

GS: So, no Nintendo Switch version (of Tekken 7) to reveal?

KH: We're quite surprised by the Nintendo Switch announcement; read into that what you like.

Bandai Namco and Nintendo have an absolutely great relationship right now. There was even a Tekken game at Wii U launch. At this point, I'd be surprised if something special wasn't in the works.

I'm ready for a new Soul Caliber

Well to me it says "we were not even aware of it" since they're saying they're surprised and all.

That being said, seeing how they have been best buddies with Ninty these days them being left out would be surprising.

Did they not let him into the loop? lol

Maybe the surprise is him seeing the final name and the updated designs? I doubt Nintendo would snub Bamco after the work they did together.

I hope it gets a special Switch edition. I loved the additional features added to the Wii U version. I'd love to see the Nintendo costumes return, except I want them to be released as parts, instead of character exclusives. It would be nice to be able to mix and match Nintendo outfit pieces, like wearing a Mario hat with Link's Tunic, or something. It would also be neat to get more costumes from other franchises, like Kid Icarus Uprising, Star Fox, Xenoblade, Donkey Kong, and Metroid.
