Keeping the battle roster fresh is key to the success of any fighter and today Bandai Namco are doing just that with Tekken 7, as they add 3 new playable characters to the scene.
Announced at the Tekken Word Tour 2018 Finals in Amsterdam is the confirmation of a trio of new playable characters for Tekken 7, with two becoming available for purchase right now.
This sees Vale Tudo expert Craig Marduk and wrestler Armor King pop up into the Tekken 7 roster for Season Pass holders or those willing to splash a bit of extra cash on the DLC6 and DLC7 packs. Each will set you back £4.79, but will ensure that you get access to two stunning new fighters. If you wish to see them added to your game, then heading to your favoured digital store is the best route to take – with the Xbox Store our preferred shop of choice.
Further to the Marduk and King purchases though and also announced is the skilled martial artist Julia Chang, who, alongside Negan from AMC’s The Walking Dead, will be rocking up a little further down the line. We’ll be sure to remind you when that time comes.
Further information about each of the characters is below, whilst our full review of Tekken 7 can be found right here.
Country: Australia – Fighting Style: Vale Tudo
Following his fight with Armor King, Marduk awoke in hospital to find strange injection marks across his body. Seeking answers, he tried to locate Armor King who was also recovering from their fight. Before reaching his destination, he was stopped by King, who insisted Marduk instead settles the score with Armor King once and for all in the ring.
Country: Unknown – Fighting Style: Professional Wrestling
His fight with Craig Marduk, the man that killed his brother, left them both seriously injured. Upon regaining consciousness, he found a letter beside his hospital bed from Marduk, demanding a rematch to finish what they had started.
Marduk vows that, if he loses, he would retire from the fighting scene. But, if Armor King lost, he would have his mask forcibly removed. Confident of his own triumph, Armor King accepted the challenge.
Country: USA – Fighting Style: Xin Yi Liu He Quan and Baji Quan
After retiring as the masked fighter Jaycee, Julia concentrated fully on expanding her reforestation efforts around the globe, far from the fighting scene. But, her project quickly needed money. Finding it difficult to secure backers, Julia was forced to return to the fight far sooner than she had wanted. Seeking one final fight, she made it her mission to beat Kazuya Mishima. Doing so, she theorised this would gain the global attention, and subsequent funding that her reforestation project needed.
