Meanwhile, Bandai Namco launched the arcade version of Tekken 7 back in March and has added three new characters: Jin Kazama, Devil Jin, and Josie Rizal. So far, 24 playable characters have been confirmed for the upcoming Tekken 7. These include Alisa, Asuka, Bryan, Claudio, Devil Jin, Dragunov, Feng, Heihachi, Hwoarang, Jin, Josie, Katarina, Kazumi, Kazuya, King, Lars, Law, Leo, Lili, Lucky Chloe, Paul, Shaheen, Steve and Xiaoyu.
If Bandai Namco doesn’t place Yoshimitsu as a replacement for another character, he will become the 25th playable character of Tekken 7. Till now, it’s sure whether he comes as a new addition or as a replacement to a former character. Although Tekken 7 was announced last year, Bandai Namco is yet to announce when this ‘Epic’s Unreal Engine 4’-powered game will release on different platforms in various territories.
Meanwhile, the most controversial and also the latest character is Josie Rizal, whose name was derived from Philippine national hero Jose Rizal. This character combines kickboxing and eskrima as her fighting style. Other interesting characters include, Lucky Chloe and Shaheen from Saudi Arabia.
Stay tuned for more updates on Tekken 7!
