"Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" is also set to feature customizable accessories and costumes for every character. EventHubs reports that the game will have tons of clothing and accessories for players to mix and match. Some of these items range from normal clothes and costumes, to hilarious, sexy and weird ones. Take for example this costume set for Yoshimitsu, which replaces his cybernetic appearance with a hammerhead shark headgear. Another one for Jack turns him into a golem-like monster from a "Dragon Quest" game.
After keeping "Tekken 7: Fated Retribution" in arcades only since its official debut on March of 2015, Bandai Namco will be most likely releasing a well-polished game once it hits consoles early 2017. Games from the "Tekken" series have always enjoyed great character balance and more content.
