As I’m sure many of you are aware, the first day of Tekken 7 location testing is just about to get underway in Japan. Players will be able to try out the upcoming title, its new gameplay mechanics, and the arcade netplay system over the course of the weekend, and various details are starting to emerge from those in attendance.

Upon entering the event, fans are being immediately treated with a preview of a brand new character named Claudio. While information on his playstyle has yet to emerge, you can check out a glimpse of his design below.

Furthermore, Bandai Namco Games has uploaded a document that provides a preview for the game’s new Power Crush moves, movelists for each cast member, and more. This now gives us a preliminary look at the Tekken 7 cast, which includes newcomers Claudio and Katarina (previously known as Catalina) as well as returning fighters Kazuha, Heihachi, Lars, Asuka, Lili, Alisa, Paul, Law, Xiaoyu, King, Dragunov, Bryan, Leo, Feng, Steve, and Hwoarang.

Rage Arts

When your vitality falls below a certain value, you enter Rage State and your attack damage rises! At that time, input a specific command and you’ll be able to use the powerful special moves Rage Arts! The command varies by character so check the command list below.

Power Crush

Even if you take an attack while in the startup of this attack, your character will shrug off the blow and complete the move. You can perform the attack repeatedly and repeatedly receive blows, but will still receive the damage, so pay attention to your vitality. Power Crush is also only effective against high or mid attacks.

Other Changes

Pressing Back while downed has been changed to a back rise. Spring Kick has been changed to LK+RK while downed.
