More Details Emerge For Tekken 7/NJPW Partnership
It was announced last month that Bandai Namco and New Japan Pro Wrestling would be joining forces for the upcoming Tekken 7, showing off a new King outfit based on the NJPW Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada.
Turns out, the deal extends even further than that. A new trailer has revealed outfits for Bryan and Jack, showing them adorned in Bullet Club swag. If you don’t know who Bullet Club are, they’re a prominent wrestling faction that have been taking over “indie” wrestling for a couple of years. Members have included current WWE stars AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Think the NWO and you’re about there.
King is also getting an addition to his moveset, as he will be able to use Okada’s finishing move The Rainmaker during matches. Meanwhile, in real life, Okada will be donning a King outfit for NJPW’s upcoming Fantastica Mania event. Lastly, fans of former New Japan wrestler, current NXT champ and the King of Strong Style Shinksuke Nakamura will find outfits decked out with the “Chaos” logo, a faction formerly helmed by the man with the greatest entrance in wrestling today.
Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if this was all the work of current Bullet Club leader and fighting game fan Kenny Omega. This kind of partnership seems like his doing. Still, check out the trailer below. It might be in Japanese, but the footage sure isn’t! A release date for Tekken 7 has yet to be confirmed, other than the tentative window of “Early 2017”. Hopefully, Harada-San ends the suspense and announces something soon. We’re getting impatient.
