Tekken 7 Getting Anna Williams, Lei Wulong, Negan from The Walking Dead, and More

Bandai Namco announced three new characters for a brand new Tekken 7 season: Anna Williams, Lei Wulong, and Negan from The Walking Dead.

August 5, 2018

Today, at the end of the EVO 2018 Grand Finals, Bandai Namco announced a new season for Tekken 7.

Three new characters have been revealed, Anna Williams, Lei Wulong, and a rather big surprise: a collaboration with The Walking Dead will bring forth Negan.

On top of them, three new characters will be revealed at a later time. You can check out the trailer below.

The announcement was made on stage directly by big Tekken boss Katsuhiro Harada, and if you want to hear it with the crowd reaction (which was definitely enthusiastic) you can check out the second video below.

Harada-san also shared that the whole series has now passed 47 million copies sold.


The new season doesn’t have a release date for the moment, besides a generic “coming soon.” It will be accompanied by a sizable update of the game.

If you want to enjoy a rather terrifying mental image, Lei Wulong is the only character I ever cosplayed, a long, long time ago. No, you’re not getting any pictures.

Tekken 7 is currently available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. You can grab a copy on Amazon. You can also read our review of the game.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
