During Evo 2016, game director Katsuhiro Harada introduced two new characters for Tekken 7, Returning character Bob and Master Raven.
First introduced back in Tekken 6, Bob is described as a “Freestyle Karate practitioner”. He is one of the most well rounded fighters in the entire series, using a mixture of strength, speed, and a wide variety of attacks. This time around he also seems to have a brand new appearance as well.
The second introduction was for a female character named Master Raven, who is a Ninjutsu practitioner who fights using a combination of swordplay and hand-to-hand combat. Not only does Master Raven share her name and fighting style with Raven from Tekken 5, but if you’ll watch the trailer below, she also seems to have a very similar moveset. Till now, we have no information as to how these characters may be connected.
Tekken 7 is the latest game in the wildly popular Tekken franchise, and is the first game in the series to utilize the Unreal Engine. Although Tekken 7 has previously had a limited arcade release in Japan, it has not yet gotten a global release.
The game is currently set to release on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC sometime in early 2017.
