With the launch of Tekken 7 Bandai Namco went into a collaboration with New Japan Pro Wrestling for both in-game content, as well as merchandise. The initial wave of these was focused on stars such as IGPW Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika “Rainmaker” Okada, the Ace Hiroshi Tanahashi, as well Bullet Club leader Kenny Omega. Now, more collaboration content is coming — and it promises to be ungovernable.
The latest Tekken 7 and NJPW collaboration involves none other than Los Ingobernables de Japon leader Tetsuya Naito. The collaboration specifically involves Naito and Tekken’s Devil Jin. It so far involves a line of clothing, T-shirts, hoodies, and wrist bands.
For those not familiar with him, Tetsuya Naito started out as the “Stardust Genius”, but initially failed to get traction with the fans. This all changed after a trip to Mexico where he joined up with La Sombra (current NXT Champion Andrade Cien Almas) as part of the latter’s Los Ingobernables stable. His return to NJPW saw him bring a new attitude called “Tranquilo” that caught the attention of the fans leading to the formation of Los Ingobernables de Japon — arguably the most popular stable in New Japan Pro Wrestling at the moment.
For those interested in the collaboration, the merchandise can be ordered via Bandai Namco’s official online store. As for whether or not this collaboration will also include future in-game content, no details have yet have been revealed.
