First discussed by Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada at the Tekken World Tour finals last month, Tekken 7 will be receiving a potentially very important update on PlayStation 4 next week. On Sony's console, the fighter suffers from very slight input delay, meaning that button presses register a tiny bit slower. As you can imagine, even the smallest amount of delay can impact the performance of a competitive player, so any improvement is going to be welcome.

The news comes from Tekken community advisor Mark Julio -- more commonly known as MarkMan -- who says the patch is due out this week, starting on the 14th December. Here's hoping that the fix ends up being effective.
