TEKKEN 7 has landed at Gamescom this year and has brought some crazy announcements.
First up a new character added to the roster in the form of “Lee Chaolan”, returning from previous entries sporting a brand new costume, Lee looks to be filled to the brim with flashy combos and his signature scream. Interestingly Lee will also coming with his palette swap counterpart “Violet”. Violet appeared as Lee’s disguise back in TEKKEN 4 and again in TEKKEN Tag Tournament 2 and is appearing once again in TEKKEN 7.
How Lee will impact the storyline of TEKKEN 7 remains to be seen but being the adoptive son of Heihachi Mishima, Lee will certainly play a role in the games cinematic story mode when it lands on consoles.
Speaking of story mode we have been given new information regarding playable characters and how the mode will function.
“TEKKEN 7’s engaging story mode is composed of several hours of gameplay (including side stories that players can unlock progressively). Not only can you play as the Mishimas in Story Mode, but there are other arcs that involve fighters outside of the Mishima clan, such as Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists.
The Archers of Sirius are a group of exorcists who have been banishing supernatural entities from this world since ancient times. A highly secretive organization, its existence is unknown to the public. Although it is not known how their existence was revealed, the Archers of Sirius were suddenly approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu. They were heavy-handedly requested by the Mishima Zaibatsu to join their conglomerate, but naturally refused. This did not stop the persistent pressure from Mishima Zaibatsu, however.
Eventually, the news of this approach from the Mishima Zaibatsu reached the de facto leader of the Archers of Sirius, Claudio Serafino. Determined to uncover the motives behind the Mishima Zaibatsu’s actions, Claudio begins to investigate the powerful conglomerate.”
Confirmed scenes for story mode outside of the Heihachi Vs Akuma fight we saw at E3 is Young Heihachi Vs Kid Kazuya, which looks to recreate the pivotal moment in the series from the before the first game.
