Bandai Namco made some serious promises about their latest title in the works, which is Tekken 7, at the San Diego ComicCon 2014, but the PC port of the game is ?making an even louder buzz online.

Bandai Namco didn?t make any official announcement about Tekken 7 being made available for the PC, but recently, Amazon UK listed a game of the same name, which is to be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. It didn?t take long before hundreds or thousands of people took notice of it, and the ad was?removed right away.

The item didn?t have any release date, but it was priced at ?39.99.

This could be a very good hint that Tekken is finally going to be introduced properly on our home PCs. While this all sounds good, it might kill the chances of the game being released for the previous-gen consoles Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In a recent statement, Tekken?s Executive Producer and Game Director Katsuhiro Harada may have been giving a subtle hint that Tekken 7 is actually slated for a PC release.

?With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve the visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.?

Judging from the viewpoint that we can get here, it would seem like it would be ?easy? enough to port the game on almost any platform, with the PC included. This would be the first time for the Tekken franchise and it will open up new possibilities for the game. It wouldn?t surprise us that much though, as the suit has already been started a few years ago with Street Fighter IV, The King of Fighters XIII and even Mortal Kombat X, which is already going to make its way to the Windows PC.

In the trailer above, it would seem that there?s a chance that this might be the ?final? battle, but we aren?t sure about the series? future, just yet, until Bandai Namco makes any official announcements on GamesCon 2014.
