The official YouTube channel for the Tekken fighting game franchise began streaming a teaser video on Saturday to reveal that the arcade version of the Tekken 7: Fated Retribution game is getting a "Round 2" update in February 2019.

Anna and Lei are the first two of six new characters that will join the game for the second DLC season pass. These other additions include guest character Negan from The Walking Dead and three as-yet unannounced characters.
Bandai Namco Entertainment released an arcade update for Tekken 7 titled Tekken 7: Fated Retribution in July 2016 in Japan. The update includes a graphics update as well as a new system, new stages, new costumes, new items, and new characters. Bandai Namco Entertainment added Akuma (Gōki) from Capcom's Street Fighter games and Nina Williams as playable characters in the update. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is the basis for the game's launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
