Tekken 7 Will Consider Adding More Fighters And Stages From Different Countries

by Damian Seeto


Tekken games usually have fighters and stages from all parts of the world. Tekken 7 will be no different as lots of countries are being considered to be added into the new game.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada mentioned on Twitter “I’m considering a lot of countries” when asked about different stages and fighters that could be in Tekken 7. The Tekken series has always made sure to include fighters of various ethnicities. Over the years, fighters have hailed from countries such as Australia, Egypt and Brazil just to name a few.

In terms of stages, many different locations were added in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. One of my favorites in the game was set in Switzerland with a bunch of sheep standing around. It reminded me a lot of New Zealand since a lot of sheep reside there too.

Many fans are requesting to Harada different nationalities and locations that could be added in Tekken 7. Come to think of it, I don’t think a fighter or location from New Zealand has ever made it in to a Tekken game before. Craig Marduk is Australian, but it would be better if a Kiwi fighter is to be added. A tough guy Maori such as Manu Bennett (Deathstroke in Arrow) could be a good template for Bandai Namco to consider.

What new fighters and stages would you like to see in Tekken 7?
