posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for Bandai Namco Entertainment's Tekken 7 arcade fighting game revealed on Friday that the game will add Jack-7 as a playable character next Tuesday.
The website describes the character's fighting style as fighting "with all his strength."
Previously announced new characters include Lucky Chloe, Shaheen, Claudio, Katarina, Josie Rizal, and Gigas. Returning characters include: Jin, Devil Jin, Kazuya, Lars, Lili, Xiaoyu, Paul, Steve, Hwoarang, Dragunov, Heihachi, Asuka, Alisa, Feng, Marshall Law, Leo, King, and Bryan. Bandai Namco Entertainment also revealed the new character Yoshimitsu earlier this month.
Tekken 7 utilizes Unreal Engine 4, and the new "Power Crash" and "Rage Arts" game systems. "Power Crash" allows a counter attack in the middle of an opponent's attack. "Rage Arts" is a special power crash that can be invoked while in rage mode.
The arcade version ran various location tests last year in Japan. Bandai Namco Entertainment launched the game in Japanese arcades on March 18.
