More characters are coming to Tekken 7 , Game director Katsuhiro Harada and game designer Michael Murray announced a number of new characters coming to Tekken 7 as part of a new season , In A Truly Bizarre Crossover Negan from The Walking Dead.
That’s right, the iconic Saviors leader (and archenemy of Rick Grimes and company) is coming to Tekken 7 as part of the game’s season two DLC pass. Negan might be tied up in the latest season of The Walking Dead, but that doesn’t mean he can’t bash a few skulls in the latest Tekken video game
Bandai Namco revealed the character in a teaser video released during the annual EVO fighting game tournament. The new dlc will also include the return of veteran Tekken fighters Anna Williams and Lei Wulong .
It’s an unexpected collaboration. Tekken has tinkered with guest fighters before, including Final Fantasy XV hero Noctis Lucis Caelum and Street Fighter icon Akuma.

For the uninitiated, Negan is a villain in The Walking Dead, a character that appeared in the comics years ago, and in the AMC show for the last two years as part of an ongoing All Out War story line between Negan’s group, the Saviors, and Rick Grimes’ survivor collective.
