Fans of the series can expect a lot of new content to come to the renown fighting game.
After grand finals at EVO 2019, Tekken 7 director Katsuhiro Harada released a trailer announcing Season 3 content for the game. In the trailer, it was shown that Tekken veteran Zafina will return to Tekken 7. The character first debuted in Tekken 6 and returned as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Following her montage, the trailer showed off a new character for the series named Leroy Smith.
Season 3 will begin next month in September with the release of Zafina. According to the road map, Leroy Smith, as well as an unannounced character and “feature,” will release in Winter. Another new character and stage will follow in Spring 2020. On top of the new DLC, there will be free updates throughout the season. These updates include new moves for all characters, play stats display, updated UI, expanded practice functionality, and My Replay & Tips.
Bandai Namco has had a history of debuting new characters at EVO. Two years ago, the developer unexpectedly announced Noctis from Final Fantasy XV as a character. The next year they showed fans a video announcing that Negan from The Walking Dead would be a playable fighter. Personally, I was expecting another new third party character to be shown based on Bandai Namco’s history.
It has not been said as to when the next two characters for Season 3 will be announced. Last month, Bandai Namco said that the game had passed four million copies sold worldwide. We found Tekken 7 to be a great fighting game that won us over with its “rock-solid fighting mechanics.” The game is available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You can purchase Tekken 7 on Amazon.
