Today, during the EVO 2017 livestream, Tekken 7 Producer and Director Katsuhiro Harada announced a new character that will join the cast of the game.
Since crossovers are all the rage nowadays in fighting games, the new character indeed comes from another series, or multiple to be precise, it’s Geese Howard from SNK’s Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters series.
Geese Howard is the main antagonist of the Fatal Fury series, and also appears as a villain in the Art of Fighting series. As one of the most relevant characters of the SNK universe, he appeared in The King of Fighters games in several roles. Funnily, he’s dead in the Fatal Fury continuity, where he is killed at the end of Real Bout Fatal Fury. On the other hand, he’s alive in The King of Fighters, and he appears in the recently-released The King of Fighters XIV.
Geese will join the fray in Tekken 7 this winter, retaining his imposing look, even if he certainly looks quite interesting and a bit more realistic in his Unreal Engine 4 rendition.
Alongside the announcement, a trailer was released, and you can check it out below.
