Fans of the Tekken series were anxiously waiting for the new title to drop. The last title, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, was released back in 2011. Before that Tekken 6 arrived in 2007. So it has certainly been quite a long time and Tekken 7 filled a void that many fans had been feeling. Three new Tekken 7 characters have been confirmed by the new title’s director and producer Katsuhiro Harada.
Just last month Namco Bandai released the new title’s opening cinematic. It was enough to satisfy fans’ appetite until the game itself arrived.
Tekken 7 Director and Producer Katsuhiro Harada announced the three new characters of this game during a 20th anniversary live stream on Nico Nico. Jin Kazama is making a comeback. Devil Jin is returning as well. Josie Rizal is an entirely new entry in the roster.
Jin and Devil Jin will join the roster on March 31st and April 7th respectively. It has only been said that Josie will be added to the roster “soon.”
Tekken 7 initially had an arcade release in Japan. Previous titles in this franchise took their time but did make it to popular consoles like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii U. There’s nothing to suggest that Tekken 7 won’t be released on these consoles, but it might take some time before that happens.
