Julia and The Walking Dead’s Negan hit Tekken 7 next week

Tekken 7 gets just that little bit weirder on February 28th, as live-streaming pugilist Julia Chang gets extremely online in the ring. Baseball-bat swinging warlord Negan from The Walking Dead makes the leap along with her. Together, they wrap up the second season of the Bandai Namco arcade fighter's DLC. In any other fighter these two would probably seem like oddballs, but Tekken 7's cast…

The best Tekken player in the world is a panda

A panda won the Tekken World Tour grand finals this weekend, rampaging through its opponents with all the anti-human rage you might expect of an endangered species. I say “panda”, I mean professional fighterman Hyeon-ho Jeong of South Korea, aka 'Rangchu', who mauled his way through the top 20 Tekken 7 players in the world using the black-eyed animal as a fighty pal. Eventually, ‘Rangchu’…

Armor King and Marduk come to Tekken 7 today (and Julia is on her way)

Marduk, the angry criminal who missed leg day, and Armor King, the only wrestler unsporting enough to wear chainmail to a fight, are coming to Tekken 7 today. A third knuckle cruncher is also coming some time later: native American Julia Chang, who has undergone a redesign and is now an ecologically-concerned streamer. The new biffers were announced by director Katsuhiro Harada at the Tekken…

The demon-thumping biff ‘em up is getting a big update this week, alongside its second season of characters, and it has released the patch notes for it’s current characters. As is customary for fighting games, there are a lot of tiny adjustments to frame…

Six more characters headed to Tekken 7 including The Walking Dead’s Negan

As anyone who stayed up last night to watch the Evo 2018 finals can tell you, fighting games are wild right now. Massive upsets, big comebacks and surprise announcements abound, and few as surprising as Tekken 7's second season pass. Announced during the game's finals last night, there's another six characters headed to Bandai Namco's fighter, three of which have been confirmed. Returning from earlier…

Held at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, thousands trade blows across eight major games (plus a fair few minor ones) in search of fame, glory, and big cash prizes. Evo's doors are open, and the first matches…

Tekken to the catwalk: judging the new birthday outfits

Brendan: Fisticuffs game Tekken 7 celebrates its first birthday today and is gifting players some free costumes, hairstyles, effects and props to use in the fighting game’s silly-yet-joyful character customiser. As a strong adherent of fashion in the world of the Iron Fist, I am duty-bound to inspect these new bits and pieces with the critical eye of a trendsetting face-puncher. I’m joined now by…

Tekken 7 celebrates a year of fisticuffs with fancy dress

One of the best things about recent Tekken games is their genuinely impressive degree of character customisation. While you might be limited to a base character model - you're not going to be making your own character from scratch - there are a truly enormous number of outfits, accessories and downright silly costume pieces that you can slap onto them to show off online. To…

Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis bowls into Tekken 7 today

While resident buttonmasher Brendan is busy in San Francisco, it falls to me to tell you that Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum today arrived in Tekken 7 as the latest DLC character. "Noctis's occupation is listed as: formally opening swimming pools and shopping centres," Brendan might say, with that air of authority he has when making ludicrous claims about fighting game characters. "Likes:…

Tekken 7 gets new character Geese tomorrow

Firm-but-fair fisticuffs game Tekken 7 gets a new character tomorrow in the form of Geese Howard. Who’s that? He’s the blonde villain from another fighting game series, Fatal Fury, which was popular on ye olde Neo Geo in Japan. Let’s learn more about him by checking the ever-useful Tekken wiki. Ah yes, let’s see. "Likes: Himself." "Dislikes: People who stop his ambitions." He sounds nice.

Final Fantasy XV boy Noctis is coming to Tekken 7

The crossover-verse collapses further upon itself with every passing day. This time it’s magic prince lad Noctis from Final Fantasy XV who falls victim to the fathomless gash in the fabric of our collective realities. In spring next year he will wake up to find himself in Tekken 7, where he must compete in the Iron Fist Tournament. Super.

Tekken Bowl is back, and everything is OK

Tekken was always a ridiculous game as far as I was concerned, which was exactly why I love(d) it. Of course, it's a Very Serious Fighting Game to others, but my sense is that those others would object to the upcoming inclusion of a ten-pin bowling mode, and as such they should get the heck out of my Tekken. Tekken Bowl is Tekken heritage, and…

Tekken 7 finally brings the fight to PC

Slam a body down and kick it all around: Tekken 7 [official site] is now out on PC - and on the same day as its console release. Yes, that console holdout fighting game series could no longer resist coming over to give us a swifting kicking. Tekken, I'll explain for those who missed its console and arcade instalments, is a fighting game which looks…

Tekken 7 brings bearbiffing to PC in June

The bear-knuckle biffing of Tekken 7 [official site] will arrive on June 2nd, Bandai Namco announced today. After 22 years (22!), the fighting game series will finally swing by PC. One might say it has 'Tekken' its time, if one were a punfaced git. "But Alice," you say, and I hear you saying it so don't say you don't because you do, "how will I…

Bear-knuckle brawling in Tekken 7 next year

Perhaps you, like me, had forgotten that Tekken 7 [official site] will see the fighting game series finally arrive on PC. Perhaps you, like me, had forgotten that Tekken is so cuckoo kooky bonkers that its lineup of pugilists includes not one but two bears - one grizzly, one panda. Also the bears can talk. And at least one of them evidently ↑ likes a…

Biff! Bam! Tekken 7 Reveals Bob And Master Raven

I'm still a little surprised Tekken 7 [official site] is coming to PC after 23 Tekkenless years. Bandai Namco announced their fighting game's PC port during E3, and showed a little more of it during last weekend's Evo fightorama. This is exciting to me because, as someone who's not played Tekken since the first PlayStation, I am delighted to discover its lineup includes characters I'd…

Biff! Bam! Tekken 7 Coming To PC In 2017

Not wanting to be out-done by the squillions of fighting games flexing, squatting, and jostling on PC nowadays, Tekken is coming our way too. Bandai Namco today announced that their latest manbiffer is coming from arcades to Windows in "early 2017", all jazzed up with extra biffybits. Also way more drama than I was expecting, going by the E3 trailer showing a Street Fighter man…
