Did you buy Tekken 7 solely for the New Japan Pro Wrestling collaboration? If so, you may have thought their cross-promotion was going to begin and end with the Bullet Club costumes and King’s Kazuchika Okada outfit.
Well, that’s not the case. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is getting a title update that adds a new Hiroshi Tanahashi outfit and “Rage Art” for Lars Alexandersson. Lars’s new “Rage Art” is Tanahashi’s signature “Sling Blade” finisher, and every time you pick Tanahashi’s outfit you’ll hear his “LOVE&ENERGY” theme song. There’s also some new Bullet Club Shirts in the update for various cast members, as well as Tanahashi-themed player cards.
The title update will hit arcades on November 18th. While there is no official date set for consoles, we do still have two DLC characters to go. Perhaps Lars Tanahashi will be packaged with Geese’s arrival? We won’t know until a further announcement, but until then: Go Ace!
