After the Tekken 7 top 8 at EVO 2019, series producer Katsuhiro Harada took the stage to show off a trailer for what’s next for the game. There’s a Season 3 incoming, complete with a set of new characters.
You can see the trailer here:
The majority of the trailer is showing off the new moves coming to the existing cast in order to refine the game’s balance, before showing off two of the new characters coming with the season 3 pass.
The first is a returning character from Tekken 6, Zafina. She uses the claw of Azazel in combat alongside her regular techniques, a departure from her previous appearance, along with a new design.
The second new character is an entirely new character, named Leroy Smith, a martial arts master and victim of gang violence from New York. He brings these techniques – and his sunglasses – into the ring in Tekken 7.
Leroy and Zafina are scheduled for release in September 2019, along with a free update to the game with the rebalancing and a new UI, among other improvements. Four other characters will be added through Season Pass 3 later in 2019 through the early parts of 2020.
