Bandai Namco have just announced that two new characters will be joining the Tekken 7 roster when the new DLC lands on February 28th. Julia Chang and the Walking Dead’s Negan will be joining the already impressive line up of playable characters. If you already own the Tekken 7 season pass you will get these new characters automatically. If you don’t then they can be purchased separately.
You can check out the official trailer below:
Below are the bios for each character, taken from the official press release.
Julia Chang fights using the Xin Yi Liu He Quan and Baji Quan fighitng styles.
“After retiring as the masked fighter Jaycee, Julia concentrated fully on expanding her reforestation efforts around the globe, far from the fighting scene. But her project quickly needed money. Finding it difficult to secure backers, Julia was forced to return to the fight far sooner than she had wanted. Seeking one final fight, she made it her mission to beat Kazuya Mishima. Doing so, she theorised, would gain the global attention, and subsequent funding, that her project required”.
Negan meanwhile doesn’t favour a particular fighting style and is more of a brawle albeit one armed with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire.
“The Walking Dead’s Negan, the charismatic leader of the Saviors, brought other communities together under his thumb with the motto “people are a resource.” One day, Negan received reports that an unknown group had taken out several of his men. Per his standard policy, he enacted a plan to capture and make an example of them. The survivors fell into Negan’s carefully laid trap, but, just as he was choosing his victim to serve as an example, the group put up an intense fight and escaped. Negan worried they would disturb his new world order if he did not deal with them swiftly. Taking his barbed-wire bat Lucille – named after his beloved wife – into his hand, he set out to take care of these foolish ingrates who would challenge his authority.”
