Bandai Namco has announced a “new” Tekken 7 character and his name is “Jack 7”.
Tekken 7 will be the seventh incarnation of the Jack character. Jack 7 looks pretty similar to all of the other Jacks that have appeared in previous games.
Bandai Namco released a debut trailer looking at Jack 7 in Tekken 7. He still has the slow but powerful fighting style from the older games.
In terms of Jack 7’s appearance in Tekken 7, not much has been altered. I noticed he has a red mohawk as opposed to the blonde hair he usually has. He’s not totally unrecognizable like Yoshimitsu.
Much like all Tekken 7 fighters, it looks like Jack 7 also has a cool looking combo finisher. He also has a few other new moves that I did not see him use in the previous games.
Bandai Namco did not announce yet when Jack 7 will be added to Tekken 7. It’s possible he will be added to the arcade version of the game as early as later this month. The roster for the game grows as the months go by.
Hopefully Bandai Namco also confirms a console release for Tekken 7 too. It’s rumored the game will only be out for the PS4 and Xbox One, but this has yet to be confirmed officially.
