Random: Tekken Director Thinks His New Game Might Be Bandai Namco’s Most Expensive Project Ever

During a New Year live stream, Bandai Namco Tekken 7 director Katsuhiro Harada mentioned how he was quite possibly working on the Japanese company’s “most costly development project” ever.

Harada himself can’t even believe the higher-ups within the company gave it the green light. Here’s the full translation, courtesy of Gematsu:

“Well, honestly I think this might be the most costly development project in Bandai Namco history. I think its incredible that the higher-ups approved of this. Well, the approval has passed, its just that due to the coronavirus, we haven’t really been able to properly start the project.”

While a new Tekken game or another fighter would be an obvious guess, apparently the project may not necessarily be within this genre. The veteran developer goes on to state how he doesn’t think he’ll ever do a fighting game other than Tekken, and noting how he’s currently working on games that aren’t linked to the type of game he’s commonly associated with.

“I’m developing things other than fighting games. I don’t think I’ll ever do any other fighting game other than Tekken. But I won’t say what this project is at this point.”

So, any guesses about what this project might be? Oh, and if you’re reading Mr. Harada, we’re still hoping to see a Tekken 7 port for Nintendo Switch.
