If you have the season pass 2 for Tekken 7 then you’re eligible for downloading the two new characters added to the second season of content for the 3D fighting game starting December 3rd. The two characters include Marduk and Armor King, the latter of which was one of the most highly requested characters for Tekken 7 since Namco announced that the game was getting DLC.
EventHubs posted the news up after Katsuhiro Harada, the producer for Tekken 7, revealed the characters and some new gameplay during the Top 8 finals at the Tekken World Tour Finals.
You can check out the gameplay for the new characters below, courtesy of STK.
In the video we see the MMA specialist, Marduk, taking the fight to King with double leg takedowns, some ground and pound, and his ultimate finisher.
In the second trailer we see Armor King fighting against Marduk with some vicious maneuvers. He still has a lot of King’s moves, but he also has some badass counters, including being able to run up the wall and do a moonsault into a sunset flip. It’s sick.
He has a step-up enziguri along with a few other grab moves that look pretty sweet in action.
Armor King’s trailer ends with a special reveal of another fan-favorite… Julia Chang. We don’t get to see her in action but the tablet zooms out as she’s watching the stream of Marduk and Armor King fighting.
There’s also a clip of Negan’s combat, but it really does look like his fighting and persona would have been perfect for Mortal Kombat X instead of Tekken 7.
Negan looks good for what he is and his mannerisms and voice are pretty spot on, but he really is misplaced in the Tekken universe. I don’t know why AMC didn’t try to strike a deal with Warner Bros and have Negan featured in Mortal Kombat in some capacity, but it is what it is.
Anyway, you can look to purchase the DLC for Tekken 7 featuring Marduk and Armor King on December 3rd. The release date for Julia and Negan hasn’t been revealed yet.
