Tekken 7 Drops Brand New Leroy Smith Trailer Featuring the Hottest Single of 2019
Leroy Smith gets a new Tekken 7 trailer showcasing his skills as a Wing Chun master, wrapped up neatly in a music video package.
Bandai Namco dropped another Tekken 7 trailer today, this time featuring a previously announced new fighter, Leroy Smith. And this trailer is one part gameplay and one part music video. According to the official video: “Leroy Smith has returned to New York City as a Wing Chun master and he’s ready for revenge”:
Earlier today two other challengers were revealed in two new trailers: veteran Ganryu and new fighter Fahkumram.
The last time we saw Leroy was during EVO 2019 when Tekken veteran Zafina was revealed for the title. The character first debuted in Tekken 6 and returned as a playable character in Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Following her montage, the trailer showed off a teaser for Leroy Smith, which since garnered plenty of popularity. This was also the same EVO that we saw the fake Solid Snake fighter reveal, which garnered ire from longtime Solid Snake VA David Hayter on Twitter.
Two years ago, the developer unexpectedly announced Noctis from Final Fantasy XV as a character. The next year they showed fans a video announcing that Negan from The Walking Dead would be a playable fighter. You can check out more screenshots of both Neegan and returning fighter Julia Chang here.
Back in July, Bandai Namco revealed that the game had passed four million copies sold worldwide. We found Tekken 7 to be a great fighting game that won us over with its “rock-solid fighting mechanics.”
Tekken 7 launched in Japanese arcades back in 2015 and on consoles worldwide in 2017. It has since remained one of the most widely played titles in the fighting game community. The game made its return at EVO 2019 in early August with the third-highest entry numbers. Just under 2,000 players competed in Tekken 7 this year and just as we expected we ended up with a really entertaining tournament.
The game is currently available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. You can purchase Tekken 7 on Amazon.
