The Tekken World Tour Finals took place in Amsterdam last weekend. Bandai Namco took the oppurtunity to officially revealed the final remaining characters included in Tekken 7’s Season 2 Pass. Marduk, Armor King and Julia will all join the popular 3D fighting game’s roster.
First to get revealed was Marduk, a once undefeated Vale Tudo fighter originating from Australia. He made his debut to the franchise in Tekken 4 and has appeared frequently in Tekken titles since then. The extremely violent and brash character shares a bitter rivalry with Armor King.
Official character blurb: "Burning with rage, Craig Marduk is eager to challenge Armor King once again to determine their fates. Will you crush bones and become the ultimate champion?"
Next up was Armor King himself. Many Tekken fans are delighted to see the return of Armor King in Season 2. The character has been a fan favourite since his brother’s (the original Armor King) debut appearance in the first Tekken game in 1994. Both brother's share the same name in the series.
Official haracter blurb: "Fueled with a need for revenge, Armor King is determined to face off against his brother's killer. Will you wrestle your way to the top and settle the score?"
Both Marduk and Armor King have launched and are now available in Tekken 7!
The final Season 2 character to be revealed, Julia, made a short appearance at the end of the Armor King reveal trailer. Julia is the adopted daughter of the old school Tekken character, Michelle Chang. She made her first appearance in Tekken 3 and has been present in nearly every title in the series since then. The female character's fighting style consists of Chinese based martial arts.
On top of this, we also got to see the special guest Season 2 character, The Walking Dead’s Negan, in action for the first time in his own reveal trailer (via GameSpot).
Many fans have been scratching their heads since the character was revealed back in August. They've wondered why Bandai Namco would decide to feature a character in the game who doesn’t remotely fit into the Tekken universe. Many members of the fighting game community have noted that Negan and his barbed wire baseball bat, called Lucile, would be far better suited in the Mortal Kombat franchise.
Marduk, Armor King, Julia and Negan will join Lei and Anna in the complete line-up of Tekken 7 Season 2 characters.
Tekken 7 is now available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC along with the Season 2 Pass.
