With Street Fighter’s Akuma being in Tekken 7, Bandai Namco blew away many viewers. Then, they further blew them away again with Fatal Fury’s Geese Howard in the game as well.
In Final Fantasy XVs Noctis, no one stirred. With The Walking Dead’s Negan was announced, it was different.
The game play trailer dropped for the villainous zombie apocalypse survivor during the Tekken world Tour Finals which took place last weekend. To many, the arena might look familiar to those who are still suffering from what happened to Glen and Abraham in the TV series. The new thing is Negan’s ability to hit sick jungle combos on the entire Tekken cast.
Industry critics argue that if Jeffery Dean Morgan battered Devil Jin, it might not be as welcomed. Bandai Namco has said that the viewers have to wait for a while if they want to play as Negan. , though. The trailer shows Negan and his trusty baseball bat Lucille, as he dishes out violence on the other fighters. The character is part of season 2 DLC pack for Tekken 7. The season also includes Craig Marduk, Armor King, Julia Chang, returning veteran fighters.
Negan’s arrival still has yet to be determined, but Marduk and Armor King have already appeared.
Although Negan’s presence in the gameplay trailer recreates the iconic scene from the Walking Dead, the exception is that the fighters are not going to take his behavior sitting down.
What do you think of Negan in the trailer?
Tekken 7 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
