New Characters And Story Details Revealed For TEKKEN 7!


This week at Gamescom, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment had announced that TEKKEN fan favorite, Lee Chaolan returns together with his alter ego, Violet for the latest King of the Iron Fist Tournament.


Here is a little backstory about Lee Chaolan:

Lee Chaolan was adopted by Heihachi Mishima, meant to be a rival to his son Kazuya. As Kazuya’s adopted brother, Lee was given the same education and upbringing fitting of the Mishima clan. After being expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu for reasons unknown, Lee founded Violet Systems, a tech company specializing in development on humanoid robotics, and was quite successful.

Shortly after, the world become embroiled in conflict between the Mishima Zaibatsu, headed by Heihachi Mishima, and the G Corporation, secretly controlled by Kazuya Mishima. As most of the world was cautiously watching and trying to decide which side would be most beneficial to support, Lee had his own plans, as he had nothing but extreme hatred for both Heihachi and Kazuya. One method he choose to exact his revenge on the father and son was to covertly support Lars Alexandersson, who had turned on the Mishima Zaibatsu, but this was only the beginning of what he had in store for the Mishimas.

Aside from the usual fight modes, Tekken 7 also showcases an engaging story mode that is composed of several hours of gameplay that includes side stories that players can unlock progressively. Not only do you have the capability to play as the Mishimas in Tekken 7’s story mode, but there are other arcs that involve fighters outside of the Mishima clan, such as Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists.


Here’s what there is to know about Claudio Serafino:

The Archers of Sirius are a group of exorcists who have been banishing supernatural entities from this world since ancient times. A highly secretive organization, its existence is unknown to the public. Although it is unknown how their existence was revealed, the Archers of Sirius were suddenly approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu. They were heavy-handedly requested by the Mishima Zaibatsu to join their conglomerate, but naturally refused. This did not stop the persistent pressure from Mishima Zaibatsu, however.

Eventually, the news of this approach from the Mishima Zaibatsu reached the de facto leader of the Archers of Sirius, Claudio Serafino. Determined to uncover the motives behind the Mishima Zaibatsu’s actions, Claudio begins to investigate the powerful conglomerate.


Tekken 7 also unveiled new screenshots that shows Kazuya fighting with his father Heihachi with more details to be revealed while experiencing the game’s story mode. The game will feature more than 30 characters, which is a combination of old and new fighters along with a popular invitee, another fan favorite, Akuma from Street Fighter!


For the first time ever, Tekken 7 will be powered by the Unreal Engine 4. With this technology, BANDAI NAMCO Studios will provide intense fighting moments to players of all ranks thanks to stunning cinematics woven into gameplay.


Tekken 7 will be available on the PlayStation®4, Xbox One & PC beginning early 2017. Power is everything!
