the start of the EVO Japan 2019 top 8 finals for TEKKEN 7, Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray took the
stage to unveil a new gameplay trailer for Julia Chang and Negan. The final
two characters of TEKKEN 7 Season 2 will join the game next
February 28th. In addition, the trailer subtly showed off some brand new
alternate versions of stages, two of which TEKKEN 7 vanilla players might
recognize. (More details on the new stages will be confirmed soon.) The end
of the trailer (below) also contains a must-see cameo by Harada-san himself.
Negan even obtained Harada's "DON'T ASK ME FOR SHIT!"
catchphrase in the game.
Pictured below, Harada's
iconic "DON'T ASK ME FOR SHIT!"
On that note, the
developer's cameo in the trailer above is pretty revolutionary... with
Bandai Namco themselves taking a shot at the now "standard"
practice of releasing one fighting game DLC character at a time.
To quote Negan, "You the developers? ... "The ones
that pull that sh*t releasing characters one at a time? You going to put
me in the next update, right Harada?"
Brilliant stuff as usual...
Once again, returning
fan favorite series veteran, Julia Chang, and Negan from The Walking
Dead will join TEKKEN 7 on Thursday, February 28th.
Added new HD screenshots and character bios (below). Julia Chang's three
alternate have been revealed in this latest batch of screenshots.
Bio - JULIA CHANG
Style: Xin Yi Liu He Quan and Baji Quan
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 theorized, would gain the global
attention, and subsequent funding, that her project
Bio - NEGAN
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.
