There is nothing new here in terms of knowledge that the characters here are coming to Tekken 7 as part of the Season Pass and list of other characters we have already seen and had a chance to pick up for the game. Bandai Namco has not been too coy about these characters coming, but has been holding back on when they would be coming to the game. It would have made sense for The Walking Dead character to have landed when the new season kicked off. It did not happen but now we know that Tekken 7 will see both Negan and Julia Chang in the roster on February 28th. On all of the platforms that the game is available on. As long as you have picked it all up.
If you have been holding back on this until you were able to see more gameplay of the character(s) in Tekken 7, then get ready to have that as well. We have a nice look at both of them in action with what looks to be specially cut scenes for Negan to help drive the point home. At least it looks like they are taking more liberties with the character in the game than the TV show ever has when it comes to his dialog. How he will fit into the larger story of Tekken is still yet to be seen but there is something set up for that too. We will know for certain on the 28th though.
Tekken 7 — Negan And Julia DLC
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 theorized, would gain the global attention, and subsequent funding, that her project required.
Fighting Style: N/A
The Walking Dead’s Negan, the charismatic leader of the Saviors, brought other communities together under his thumb with the motto “people are a resource.” One day, Negan received reports that an unknown group had taken out several of his men. Per his standard policy, he enacted a plan to capture and make an example of them. The survivors fell into Negan's carefully laid trap, but, just as he was choosing his victim to serve as an example, the group put up an intense fight and escaped. Negan worried they would disturb his new world order if he did not deal with them swiftly. Taking his barbed-wire bat Lucille - named after his beloved wife - into his hand, he set out to take care of these foolish ingrates who would challenge his authority.
Was Negan the character you have been waiting for to hit Tekken 7 or is it a weirdly late marketing ploy to capitalize on popularity? Do you think he will mix in well to the roster or will he be a fun character to play a few times before getting back to the normal play? How have you enjoyed all of the other DLC so far and has it made the experience better for you? Let us all know down in the comments and then discuss. If there is more for Tekken 7 or the general franchise, we will have it here. Just be sure to keep checking back in for all of that.
