Tekken 7 Gets New Gameplay Footage of King VS Heihachi

on April 20, 2017 9:44 AM

Today, Bandai Namco released a new character gameplay video for Tekken 7, which is scheduled to ship on June 2, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The new video — which is two minutes and nine seconds long — specifically showcases characters King and Heihachi battling out in a versus match.

For those that don’t know: King is a title of two characters in the Tekken series. Each is simply called King in their respective games, though a numerical value is sometimes given to them to separate them. Both King I and King II are luchadores from Mexico and support orphans across the world. In the games they are never seen not wearing their jaguar masks. Across both of them, they have appeared in all main Tekken games.

Meanwhile Heihachi (full name: Heihachi Mishima) is one of the main characters in the series who debuted in the first game and has returned for all subsequent titles since. He was the protagonist of the second game, but is the anti-hero and one of the main antagonists for the series as a whole. In Tekken 7, Heihachi is set to return to a pivotal role in the storyline, after being decreased in importance since Tekken 5.

Tekken 7 will cost $59.99 USD when it launches. Below, you can check out the new video, and (spoilers for the video) watch my boy King whoop some Heihachi hiney.
