Announced by the franchise’s series director Katsuhiro Harada and game designer Michael Murray after the Tekken 7 finals at EVO2018 earlier today, Harada revealed the inclusion of the six new characters starting with Anna and Lei via gameplay video. No gameplay for Negan though, as he only came at the end in the form of character art alongside his trusty barbed-wired bat Lucille. Based on the short voice-over snippet, we have a feeling that Jeffrey Dean Morgan will be lending his voice to the character he played on TV to Tekken 7.
The three remaining season 2 characters are yet to be announced.
According to Tekken 7 publisher Bandai Namco, Tekken 7’s season 2 pass is coming soon to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. Crossover characters appearing on Tekken 7 isn’t new as in the game’s first season pass, players were granted access to non-traditional Tekken characters such as Geese Howard (Fatal Fury) and Noctis from Final Fantasy 15 as DLC.
