The announcment was made this past weekend at the end of The King of the Iron Fist Tekken 7 Tournament and it came as a surprise to us all.
All of the past Tekken 7 trailers have featured Heihachi’s wife, Kazumi, talking to a mysterious person about stopping her husband if she could not do it herself. The trailer shown at the Tekken 7 tournament reveals who that mysterious person is and it is non other that the raging demon himself, Akuma.
While this may be a pleasant surprise, (I’m already talking trash with friends) this reveal also brings up the question about Tekken X Street Fighter’s development. Tekken’s Katsushiro Harada has said that the game is still in development, but we haven’t seen anything on it a very long time. It’s also weird that Akuma will be appearing in the next Tekken game, but will not be on the initial Street Fighter V roster. This could also be the beginning of Tekken and Street Fighter merging story lines. I won’t rule out the possibility that a Tekken character could pop up in Street Fighter V.
Check out the trailer below. It features Akuma in all of his glory and of course the raging demon special is shown.
There is no information on when Tekken 7 Fated Retribution will drop just yet.
