Tekken 7

Go To

Sep 15th 2014 at 3:41:02 AM

Looking at that sticker(?) sheet, and assuming it's related to 7, it looks like Jin, Heihachi, Raven, Devil jin, Lili, Asuka, Xiayou, Elisa, Anna, Nina, Panda, Kuma, Roger Jr., Ganryu (guess you guys were right), Jack something or other, Mokujin(?), Bryan, Paul, Marshal, Steve, Hwoarang, Yoshimitsu(?), Lee, King, Armor King(?), Christie, Feng, Lars, and Leo are all confirmed.

Odd people to leave off are Miguel and Zafina, and the folks I figured wouldn't make it in like all of Tag 2's re-introduced clones + Eddy aren't there, but maybe I'm reading too much into it.

You mean Alisa. When you said Elisa, I thought it's the vampire chick in that PSN game.

I'm hoping that a larger chunk of the roster are new characters though. And I echo Alucard's sentiment. Maybe I'll get what I want around the games showing in October.

I wouldn't count stickers as confirmations. The Jin and Yoshimitsu stickers are of their Tekken 6 depictions, for instance, and there's no sign of anyone from Tag 2 at all.

There is little-to-no chance that Yoshimitsu won't be in the game.

Jin, though, is a bit iffier. Scenario Campaign mode had him dying at the end of the story, but it's not like death has stopped the Mishimas before.

Considering we're actually gonna get the Origin of the Devil Gene, leaving Jin out is a lil silly.

I hope Jin is dead honestly, 6 had a good ending for him.

No it wasn't...

That had to be the biggest copout ending and THEN they showed him surviving.

I thought it was ambiguous. Though maybe we'll get Zombie Jin.

It was a copout ending before showing him surviving?

Yeah Jin going all "lol I'm not evil gotta cause strife to kill something that won't be killed" is definitely a copout plus why would they kill Jin?

  • shrugs* at the very least, it's definite that not everyone from Tekken Tag 2 is coming back. I say that the cast of T6 are the only guarantees.

Savate, eh? Interesting. I honestly wonder how many new characters there will be. I also wonder what the general reaction to the character is?

So far, the reaction to the character ranges from "oh cool, more Latinas in Tekken!" to "yo, isn't this a bit stereotypical? (as in: using the Spicy Latina thing a little too much)" And there's the usual party somewhere within feeling bothered by the sexiness of the outfit, partly because it looks "banal" when it's supposed to look good and partly because it's yet another sexy half-dressed female in a fighting game.

I've been hoping the game could have a savate user for a while, but she does actually look really under dressed.

Under-dressed...I mean a jacket, pants, and a bra is enough...

It's also a bit weird to say she's from "Latin America". That's like describing someone's nationality as "European". It can mean a shitload of things.

Well, Africa is the world's biggest country as far as most of the world's concerned. A lot of people can't bother to learn what countries are in South America either.

South America alone would be egregious. Latin America (i.e the part of the americas that speak Latin-derived languages, meaning Portuguese and Spanish) is almost the entire territory of the Americas except for the US and Canada.

If they do redo the "each character gets his or her own stage" idea from pre-Tag 1 games, and if we have Miharu, think she should get Mishima High as her stage while Xiaoyu gets a revamp of her T3 stage? Adding to this, for mid-boss fights, like the aforementioned characters, think we should reuse this theme from T2:

As long as they remix the theme sure.
