Can the King of Fishing also become the King of Iron Fist?
Those that weren’t already fans of the Final Fantasy franchise — and Final Fantasy XV in particular — might still be wondering where this feathery-haired pretty boy comes from, and why he’s a guest fighter in Tekken 7 next to Akuma and Geese Howard. In this brief interview video from Bandai Namco, Tekken developer Katsuhiro Harada and Hajime Tabata from Square Enix talk a little bit about who Noctis is, and why they feel he’s a natural fit for Tekken 7.
Of course, the video above only superficially explains who Noctis is — but not why he loves fishing, what an “Armiger” is, and what the deal is with that strange Kenny Crow statue… the best way to get those details is to play Final Fantasy XV. Otherwise, you can still enjoy his unusual — and effective — fighting abilities in the Tekken 7 DLC3.
