Some time ago, we reported that assets for Jin Kazama were found in Tekken 7’s code. Now we know what those assets are for – Masakarijin has discovered that Jin can be fought in the arcade version of the game as a hidden sub-boss.

Players can face off against Jin as the replacement sub-boss in stage 4 of the arcade mode after satisfying as of yet unknown conditions. In a congratulatory tweet, Bandai Namco Games’ Katsuhiro Harada mentioned that the steps needed to meet Jin are very difficult and obscure.

And that’s not all. According to Avoiding the Puddle’s Flying Wonkey, a bugged arcade cabinet was found that revealed Devil Jin, Yoshimitsu, Kazumi, and a character that looked like Jaycee as playable characters on the select screen.

All these characters were reported as playable on the bugged cabinet, and some details about Devil Jin’s moveset have already surfaced, specifically the return of his screw attack and new knockdown properties on his hell sweeps.

More details on these characters will likely be revealed in Bandai Namco’s livestream on March 29. In the meantime, check out a few shots of Jin in the gallery below.
