Tekken 7 Will Get Two New Exclusive Guest Characters From Different Franchises

Bandai Namco has announced new guest character downloadable content for Tekken 7.

The two new characters will be added to the game post-launch as paid downloadable content, and they’ll be from other game franchises. That’s basically all we have to go off for now.

Bandai also talked up the game’s other post-launch DLC in a convenient schedule, including: a Summer 2017 DLC pack which offers a brand-new game mode and more than 50 new costumes, followed by a Winter 2017 and next Spring 2018 DLC packs that add the aforementioned guest characters (as well as special costumes for said characters and a special stage).

There’s also a season pass that gets you all three DLC packs, as well as 35 exclusive metallic costumes.

Previously, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada confirmed that post-launch, paid DLC for the game will only include “special characters,” meaning classic fighters won’t be put behind a paywall. The game’s first confirmed guest character, Street Fighter’s Akuma, will be included in the base game.

Tekken 7 is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 2nd.
