Characters Confirmed (so far) in Tekken 7

Tekken is known for its large partition of applicants for the King of Iron Fist Tournaments, so let’s have a look at returning characters:

  • Alisa Bosconvitch
  • Asuka Kazama
  • Bob
  • Bryan Fury
  • Eddy Gordo
  • Eliza (she was playable Tekken Revolution, which in itself is not a canon game due to being based off of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but she still counts as a returning character rather than a new one)
  • Feng Wei
  • Heihachi Mishima
  • Hwoarang
  • Jin Kazama/Devil Jin (they count as 2 separate characters despite being the same person practically)
  • Kazuya Mishima/Devil Kazuya (same for Jin Kazama)
  • King II
  • Kuma II
  • Lars Alexandersson
  • Lee Chaolan/Violet (similar to Jin and Kazuya, except Violet hasn’t been playable since Tekken 4/Tekken Tag Tournament 2, depending on how you view it)
  • Leo
  • Lili
  • Ling Xiaoyu
  • Marshall Law
  • Miguel Caballero Rojo
  • Nina Williams
  • Panda
  • Paul Phoenix
  • Sergei Dragunov
  • Steve Fox
  • Yoshimitsu

And here are the new characters, along with a synopsis of why they have entered the tournament:

  • Katarina Alves: she enters the tournament to look for her lost mentor
  • Claudio: a mysterious man who can use light magic as an exorcist
  • Lucky Chloe: a J-Pop inspired G Corporation representative (I’ve already written an article for her here)
  • Shaheen: a Saudi Arabian man who works as a bodyguard
  • Josie Rizal: a model from the Philippines who enters the tournament to become a member of the Tekken Force
  • Gigas: another robot who bears a resemblance to Craig Marduk (who has not been confirmed so far for this game)
  • JACK-7: A newer model from the JACK series
  • Kazumi Mishima/Devil Kazumi: Kazuya’s dead mother and Heihachi’s wife who may be the origin of the Devil Gene
  • Akuma: from Capcom’s Street Fighter series who has a pact with Kazumi in regards to her husband and son
  • Master Raven: a female ninja who is in charge of the organization that previous combatant Raven works for

For the first time ever, Tekken will have lockable characters that can be unlocked by paying for them. However, if you pre-order the game, you will obtain a season pass that will last for 12 months to purchase a character. There are 2 characters that will be revealed in the future, which leaves the possibility of:

  • Baek Doo San
  • Bruce Irvin
  • Christie Monteiro
  • Ganryu
  • Wang Jinrei
  • Zafina
  • Jun Kazama
  • Julia Chang/JayCee
  • Lei Wulong
  • Roger Jr.
  • Anna Williams
  • Craig Marduk
  • Armor King II
  • Mokujin
  • Maybe Raven as well?
