Goku & Naruto May Be Tekken 7 Guest Characters (or Anyone Else, Really)

We’re already well aware of Akuma’s presence in Tekken 7, making the jump from Street Fighter. He’s been featured heavily in the marketing materials. Bandai Namco have just revealed that there will be 2 more Tekken 7 guest characters from other franchises in the game. But they won’t say who.

 

Soul Calibur could be a realistic front-runner, as Project Soul’s series is traditionally published by Bandai Namco. Soul Calibur V, the last entry in the series, came out about 5 years ago, so it would be nice to see someone from the series make a comeback in Tekken.

It’s also not impossible we might see another Street Fighter character join Tekken 7 alongside Akuma, given how closer the Tekken and Street Fighter producers, Katsuhiro Harada and Yoshinori Ono respectively, are to one another. But will they really want to double down on Street Fighter?

When it comes to the biggest Japanese fighting games at the moment we could be looking at King of Fighters, Dead or Aliveor Guilty Gear too. They really have been pretty vague about it.

 

The second and third batches of content, to be released respectively this Winter 2017 and next Spring 2018, will both feature one exclusive playable guest character from other videogames’ licenses with, each time, a special stage and special costumes for these guest characters.

Bandai Namco also handle a lot of anime games, most of which are fighters. With very recent fighting game releases for Dragon Ball, Naruto, and One Piece to name just a few, it wouldn’t be completely out of the question to see Goku or Naruto facing off against Jin or Paul.

 

It might sound far-fetched. But Lars WAS actually in a Naruto game. Don’t tell me you missed it??

 

 

Really anything could be possible. But that’s what makes guessing so much fun! Who would you like to see join the Tekken 7 roster?

 

Tekken 7 is releasing on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One on 2nd June 2017, with the extra guest character due to come in Winter 2017 and Spring 2018!
