While most of North America slept late Friday night, the Tekken King of the Iron Fist Tournament Finals took place over in Japan. As the finals concluded, Bandai Namco had a new exciting regarding the upcoming Tekken 7. A new character debuted and it may look familiar to Street Fighter fans.
Yes, it's the demonic Akuma! A new trailer debuted revealing Kazumi reaching out to a mysterious figure to stop Heihachi, once and for all. That shadowy figure was Akuma, who could be seen performing many of his Street Fighter moves, including fireballs and Dragon Punches. And of course, he brought along his Raging Demon. It'll be interesting to see how what's essentially a Street Fighter character fits into the Tekken fighting style. But if anything, it's nice to see there's still a working relationship between the Street Fighter and Tekken teams after their crossover just a couple of years ago.
Now subtitled "Fated Retribution," look for Tekken 7 to eventually hit PlayStation 4.
