In a move which surprised many in the fighting game world, Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the latest game in their highly popular Tekken franchise, Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, and it has one new fighter that many who are familiar with fighting games should know, and his name is (not John Cena)… Akuma, also known as Gouki, who is of course from Capcom’s iconic fighting game franchise, Street Fighter.
Who ever knew that the man whose silhouette is seen when Heihachi’s wife and Tekken 7 final boss, Kazumi Mishima, was introduced, is actually Akuma?! That might explain why he is not yet in Street Fighter V’s roster, right? As seen in the video, he won’t just be like any old guest character with no significance in the story, he will be very important, and he will be coming with a mission to kill not only Heihachi, but Kazuya as well.
Now doesn’t that get you excited for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution?! The game will be released in arcades soon, with a home console version also planned to be released.
