Katsuhiro Harada has gone on record at an event in France saying that the upcoming Tekken title for the Nintendo Wii U is still in pre-production.
The project is currently in the hands of a seperate development team which is sizing up the capabilities of the new console. This title actually will be the first in the series to appear on a Nintendo home console.
"Once this assessment and the various research projects completed, they send us these results and we can look more specifically above. But we are not at this stage today," said Harada.
The Wii U still does not have a release date, but is expected around summer 2012.
