Can you believe that Tekken 7 has been a staple in the fighting game community since 2015? It’s pretty wild to fathom the 4-year run that Bandai Namco’s 3D fighter has been on these past few years. The game’s famed director, Katsuhiro Harada, has worked diligently with the rest of the development team behind Tekken 7 to refine it into one of the best installments in the beloved series that has been around since the mid-1990s.
After numerous gameplay revisions, a major console launch and the addition of beloved characters and shocking special guests, Tekken 7 has managed to keep the attention of fans for a surprisingly long time. One of the most important aspects of any fighting game is its roster. No one’s going to give your fighter the time of day if the playable personalities within it are painfully boring. Tekken 7 has this area covered, which is why its fanbase is the happiest it’s ever been.
Besides the massive launch roster selection in 2015, post-launch updates have added familiar names and guest characters into the combat equation. Armor King, Craig Marduk, Lei Wulong, Anna Williams and Julia Chang have thankfully resurfaced. But the most outlandish roster additions have come in the form of Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis Lucis Caelum, Fatal Fury’s Geese Howard and even The Walking Dead’s Negan.
At this point, no one is off limits as far as additional DLC characters are concerned. A third season pass full of worthwhile content in the form of new playable combatants sounds entirely possible. Season 2 introduced six characters, so let’s list six more entrants who’d be great for a proposed Season 3.
