The hype for Tekken 7 is reaching another plateau.
Several returning and new characters (such as Master Raven, Nina Williams and Bob) have been added into the game’s updated roster. Plus we finally have something to look forward to release period wise: Early 2017. Another fan favorite has been thrown into the already massive roll call of fighters: Lee Chaolan. He’s also bringing his alter-ego with him from Tekken 4: Violet. He arrives with a set of fresh business attire to kick ass in. And his alter-ego made sure to come back with his familiar purple wig intact.
Check him out in action in the trailer posted above.
That isn’t the only bit of news coming from the camp behind the latest bout of Tekken. Some big Story Mode reveals have hit the web. This hours-long, playable saga will give players the opportunity to use a more youthful version of Heihachi and Kazuya as a child. What was also shown off was Claudio’s personal stage and Heihachi’s newest Story Mode costume. You can read up on the official Story Mode description for Tekken 7 below:
TEKKEN 7’s engaging story mode is composed of several hours of gameplay (including side stories that players can unlock progressively). Not only can you play as the Mishimas in Story Mode, but there are other arcs that involve fighters outside of the Mishima clan, such as Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists.
The Archers of Sirius are a group of exorcists who have been banishing supernatural entities from this world since ancient times. A highly secretive organization, its existence is unknown to the public. Although it is not known how their existence was revealed, the Archers of Sirius were suddenly approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu. They were heavy-handedly requested by the Mishima Zaibatsu to join their conglomerate, but naturally refused. This did not stop the persistent pressure from Mishima Zaibatsu, however.
Eventually, the news of this approach from the Mishima Zaibatsu reached the de facto leader of the Archers of Sirius, Claudio Serafino. Determined to uncover the motives behind the Mishima Zaibatsu’s actions, Claudio begins to investigate the powerful conglomerate.
