You think Noctis and the Final Fantasy on Tekken crossover was outrageous enough?
Wait till you hear Tekken 7’s latest collaboration.
Get ready for the next battle with The Walking Dead’s Negan
The Evolution Championship Series (EVO) 2018 for Tekken has just came in to a close. We’ve got Korean pro player LowHigh hailed as the Evo 2018 Tekken 7 champion, finishing off the competition using Shaheen and defeating the legendary Qudans.
The end of another great Evo tournament signifies only one thing: the start of a new season for Tekken 7.
To signify this new era, Bandai Namco is giving us another one of its I-did-not-expect-this collaboration, following its partnership with RPG game Final Fantasy.
We’ve got The Walking Dead’s Negan joining the fighter roster for Tekken 7 Season 2!
Negan in Tekken 7 Season 2
The Saviors Leader is officially going to be a playable character in the fighting game.
Negan’s appearance was announced at the end of the season pass 2 reveal shown in Evo 2018. The whistling in the beginning of the trailer was a really sweet hint. Everyone lost it when Negan began calling out the iconic “Little pig, little pig! Let me in.” which was in season 7 of The Walking Dead.
Watch the trailer here:
We’re getting six new characters for this season!
Aside from Tekken’s The Walking Dead collab, we’re also getting five more characters for Tekken 7 season 2.
As revealed in the short video, we will be witnessing a delightful sister reunion between Nina Williams and Anna Williams.
Anna was last seen in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, and now she’s back to tear her sister into pieces.
The Super Police Lei Wulong also joins us in season 2. He is known for his Five Animals Form and Drunken Boxing based Chinese martial arts. Like Anna, Lei was last seen in Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.
The Season 2 pass of Tekken will soon be available on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam.
