Information is somewhat scarce right now for the new season of Tekken 7 — we know who some of the new incoming characters are, and we have an idea of some of the new mechanics in store for the series, but specifics on how exactly this new content works has yet to be revealed.
That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to talk about, though: for Anna and Lei fans around the world, their reveal trailers showed off an assortment of new and interesting moves.
mastermind broke down both trailers recently to comb over what we already know about the veteran Tekken fighters. Helpfully, he also compares variations to previous games, so we can see exactly how some combos have changed. Anna appears to have new cancels into her Chaos Judgement stance, a high knockdown power crush, and a high Rage Art — considering high rage arts and power crushes are typically safe on block, this is great news for people that love their panic buttons.
And speaking of “Rage”, Lei Wulong appears set to change the way we think about Rage Drives. If the trailer is to be taken at face value, Lei may launch into Tekken 7 with a unique Rage Drive from every stance. Regardless of how it’s activated or input, battling a Lei in Rage will be, if nothing else, a very different experience from anyone else.
