Update 12/01/2018: A new gameplay trailer has been released. Check it out below!
Yeah, no this isn’t your early Monday morning running joke of the day. This ladies and gentleman is reality! During the annual EVO fighting game tournament, Bandai Namco on their Twitter account announced Negan and his main gal Lucille will be entering the Tekken fray to bash some domes in. Personally, as a fan of both, I don’t know how to feel. It’s like seeing a car accident on the highway as your driving by and you tell yourself you’re not going to look, yet you do it anyway. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not against Negan entering the Tekken franchise as a celebrity character, especially since it has been done before with Noctis from Final Fnlantasy XV. This is something fans should be used to by now. Another game a few years ago, Soul Calibur IV used the iconic movie characters, Yoda and Darth Vader as playable characters. Fans went bananas over that! Either way you look at, Negan is an interesting addition to the Tekken 7 roster. Negan will not be alone in the upcoming DLC however. He will be alongside Anna William’s and Lei Wulong. No word yet on gameplay or a release date for the DLC.
What do you think about the addition if Negan to the Tekken roster? Let us know in the comments below!
