In an interesting partnership that saw Japan’s biggest wrestling promotion New Japan Pro Wrestling announcing it’s collaboration with the upcoming Tekken 7 title late last year. Which apart of the partnership saw King receiving a pretty nifty alternate costume of the current IWGP Heavyweight champion, Kazuchika Okada. Is going to be getting a little bit more interesting.
As the latest video released for Tekken 7, showcases a little more of NJPW and Tekken’s partnership as it features attire from the popular NJPW faction the “Bullet Club” for both Paul and Bryan Fury. You can check out the bone crushing video below that gives a good look at the Okada costume for King including using his devastating finishing move the “Rainmaker” and more for your viewing pleasure:
Alongside the Bullet Club attire, the video also features attire from the “Chaos” faction as seen in the short glimpse from when Heihachi and Nina Williams were trading blows.
For those out of the loop, the inclusion of alternate attires for both Okada and the Bullet club faction is pretty interesting to say the least. As Tekken 7 is adding attire from the participants of the main event of NJPW’s biggest event of the year “Wrestle Kingdom 11”, which features Kazuchika Okada putting up his IWGP Heavyweight Championship on the line as he takes on the leader of the Bullet Club, Kenny Omega.
Whom Omega himself is a pretty big fan of fighting games such as the Street Fighter series where he usually mains Cody and even appeared on the popular The Excellent Adventures of Gootecks & Mike Ross show.
In recent Tekken 7 news, both Kuma and Panda were revealed to be joining the roster early last December. For all the details about their inclusion including a detailed look at their reveal trailer feel free to read about it here.
Tekken 7 is set to be released on the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One early this year.
