That’s true, but many people consider Tekken 7’s gameplay much better and more in depth than MK11. Western developers will usually win in visuals especially because they get much larger budgets to work with, but Japanese developers imho are very hard to beat in gameplay mechanics.Id even say they put way less effort in graphical department. Graphics arent everything but I feel Japanese games are stuck in this arcade-look and dont want to push any boundaries. Love the Yakuza games but after 7 sequels...you'd think they would add more than the same 2 micro cities or actually add a real open world. Judgement comes and does the same exact thing. Yet people bitch that Uncharted 3 was more of the same and didn't innovate enough lol.
Tekken 7 uses Unreal 4
Mortal Kombat 11 uses Unreal 3 - ends up looking a whole generation ahead of T7 AND plays at 60 fps as well.
I would like it if more Japanese games pushed the envelope more with graphics admittedly. I feel that if Japanese developers had budgets near or equivalent to Western developers, then things could really change.
