During this year’s EVO Bandai Namco seemed to have a full slate of surprises all day long for gamers, from the crossover DLC with Samurai Shodown to the new content arriving in Dragon Ball FighterZ, to the Season 3 content set to debut for Tekken 7, there was a lot to take in during the fighting game tournament series’ final day of competition. In particular, the Season 3 content for Tekken 7 revealed a returning character and a brand new face joining the roster.
The Season 3 trailer is kind of lengthy, clocking in at just under four minutes. However, a minute and a half is wasted on previous DLC and other characters, but once that’s all done and over with they finally showcase the first of the new characters in the new season pass, including Zafina, from Tekken 6.
You can check out the trailer below.
The eccentric contortionist returns with an odd assortment of moves that will surely make her the bane of everyone else out there playing against her with less than perfect ping.
She has some special moves that allow her to make use of grabs and brute force attacks excelled by demonic power.
Zafina has a very unorthodox style that would surely make any opponent recoil in second thoughts before approaching her.
The second character is Leroy Smith, a Wing Chun practitioner who lost his family during a gang war in New York, and went away to train in martial arts for 50 years. After a half-century away, he returns to New York to get revenge, even though I’m pretty sure most of the people involved in the gang warfare probably died during that time.
He’s an original character, obviously designed to appeal to all those yellers and screamers asking for more “diverse” characters.
There are two more characters set to be unveiled, along with another new feature and a new stage that will be present in Season 3, which gets underway in September. The other character and feature will roll out in the winter, and the new stage and third fourth character will be available in spring of 2020.
The free updates will include new moves for all the characters, new player stats, and an updated UI.
