'Tekken 7: Fated Retribution' Latest News, Release Date & Character Updates: Master Raven Steps In; Bloodline Retribution's Bob Returns [Watch Trailer]
Two new characters for "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" are slated to appear soon. Tekken 7: Fated Retribution producer Katsuhiro Harada made the announcement at Evo 2016 on July 17, 2016.
The two "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" characters to arrive are Bob and Master Raven.
Polygon stated that Bob is a returning character in the "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" release. Bob initially appeared in the Tekken 6 game, as well as in the Bloodline Retribution, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken 3D Prime games.
Master Raven is apparently a new character in the "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" game. The franchise already has a character named Raven, but it is still uncertain whether he will appear in the upcoming "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution."
Harada confirmed that Master Raven is actually Raven's superior, so he is expected to feature a number of similar moves.
PCGamer cited Bandai Namco in saying that the original Raven debuted in Tekken 5 with origins that remain unclear at present. The introduction of his female superior, Master Raven, in "Tekken 7 Fated Retribution," will most likely shed more light about Raven's past.
Master Raven is highly skilled in the martial art of ninjutsu, has tremendous power and precise attacks. Master Raven allegedly has no issues destroying her enemies in The King of Iron Fist Tournament in "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution".
Bob, aka Robert Richards, on the other hand, is an American fighter who is an expert in freestyle karate and possesses a wide range of attacks. He is one of the most well-rounded players in "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" and a force to be reckoned with.
Videos of the two characters showing off of their skills were presented in anticipation of "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution".
"Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" is a fighting game and the ninth installment in the Tekken franchise. It will be the first title to feature the Unreal Engine and will be developed and published by Bandai Namco.
An arcade version of the game launched earlier in 2015 with updates introduced in 2016. There are 31 playable characters in the game, with 20 available upon launch. The rest will be added in the following months. There will be several returning characters, as well as new ones.
"Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" is set to launch early in 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. More updates and details are expected soon.
