Nina Williams and Feng Wei coming to Tekken Revolution in September
Slowly but surely, the roster for the free-to-play fighter Tekken Revolution just keeps growing. After the recent additions of Hwoarang, Sergei, Devil Jin, and Kunimitsu in the past few weeks, two more classic Tekken pugilists are set to hit Revolution next month: assassin Nina Williams, and Kempo master Feng Wei.
Longtime fans will remember Nina as part of Tekken since the series first began in the arcades all the way back in 1994. The buxom blonde has appeared in every single game since then, never completely regaining her lost memory. With elaborate, strong combos and chain throws, Nina's been a fan favorite for years, and her addition to Revolution will no doubt be heralded.
Feng Wei was first introduced in Tekken 5 alongside the game's other new characters, Asuka Kazama and the Wesley Snipes influenced Raven (minus the actor's penchant for missing tax payments, but you can't deny that whole "Blade" thing he has going on). Feng Wei's addition to Revolution means he's appeared in all games since the fifth.
Alongside the "new" fighters, additional content will also be added such as new effects, costumes, stages, and more. An exact release date hasn't been given, but according to Namco-Bandai's official announcement, players can expect the new fighters and content "in the coming weeks."
A brand new character never before seen in the Tekken universe is also set to hit Revolution, which you can read more about here. If you've still yet to play Revolution, you're quickly running out of excuses. The game is currently a PlayStation 3 exclusive, but it's possible the game could eventually come to Sony's handheld PS Vita.
If you've enjoyed Tekken games in the past, you'll feel quite at home playing Revolution. Players familiar to the series have the advantage, but as the game is free, there's nothing to stop novices from learning the tricks of the trade. Ultimately, it's a stripped down Tekken, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, and it's the best way to jog those old memories of playing at the local arcade. If you're a fan of fighters, give it a try. After all, you can't argue with the price.
