With Tekken 7 releasing internationally on June 2nd, Bandai Namco has announced that Tekken is getting two more guest characters other than Akuma.
It’s unknown if these guest characters will be from other Bandai Namco games, Capcom games, or otherwise, but they will be from a video game, that we know is for sure. The first guest character is planned for Winter 2017, with the second for Spring 18, though we’re likely to get teasers about them before their dates.
In other news, DLC was mentioned, with the first batch containing a new mode and over 50 costumes for the game’s characters. This first batch is set for Summer 2017, with plans for more DLC down the road if that one’s successful.
