Over on Bandai Namco’s official blog, the site details information regarding both Kuma and Panda.
As Heihachi Mishima’s pet, Kuma joins his master into the Tekken Force to fight. The bear proves his loyalty by protecting the Mishima Zaibatsu while he was believing his master was dead. After the defeat by Jin Kazama, he finally found Heihachi again and became one of the “most essential” participants of the Tekken Force.
Panda is Ling Xiaoyu’s pet and bodyguard. After Jin Kazama disappeared, Xiaoyu set out to find him, ignoring the dangers that were involved. Worrying for his master as she never returned from her dangerous journey, Panda set out after her to bring her back to her senses.
Furthermore, the new Online Tournament Mode was also noted on the blog page, which announced that players will be able to participate and create their own online tournaments with seven other participants. According to the post, players will find single and double elimination options, secured entrance for tournament with passwords as well as a Spectator Mode.
