Bandai Namco has announced that Noctis, the hero of Final Fantasy XV will be making his way over to Tekken 7.
The DLC featuring the road-tripping hero is due out in Spring 2018 for Tekken 7, and you can see him in the official gameplay reveal trailer below:
The official blurb for the character reveal emphasises his Engine Blade, as he wields in Final Fantasy XV:
“Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV enters the Tekken 7 ring! Wielding his signature Engine Blade, Noctis is ready to deal heavy hard-hitting blows as he takes on the likes of Yoshimitsu, Devil Jin, Jack 7, and the rest of the Tekken 7 fighters when he enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament in spring 2018!”
He looks like a fast flurrying character, all teleport dashes and blistering blows – someone akin to Hwoarang or Brian Fury
This is now the third piece of DLC introduced to the game, following Tekken Bowl – a new game mode – and Geese Howard, a character from the Fatal Fury games. Aside from Akuma, there has yet to be any more Street Fighter characters introduced into the game.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
