The Walking Dead’s Negan Receives New Tekken 7 Gameplay Trailer; Three Fan-Favourite Fighters Added to Season Pass
The Tekken World Tour Finals was taking place during the weekend, and when is it a better time to hype up some Tekken fans with gameplay footage of highly-anticipated The Walking Dead’s Negan. The notorious barbed-wire bat holder is coming to the game, and the gameplay trailer showcased some nice cinematic cutscenes replicating his TV series persona while fighters try to take him down one by one.
Another announcement Bandai Namco made was the arrival of three much-requested fighters, Armor King, Craig Marduk and Julie Chang. Here is a brief description on each fighter below.
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.
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.
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.
Tekken 7 is already available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Armor King and Craig Marduk are already available for players to choose as their fighters, while Negan and Julia Chang still don’t have set release dates. We will update our readers once a release date for these two characters is announced.
