Batter up, Lucille.
Bandai Namco has revealed that Negan, the ruthless Saviors leader on AMC’s The Walking Dead, will be a part of Tekken 7 in the season two DLC pass. Bandai Namco revealed the character in a teaser video released during the annual EVO fighting game tournament with a hint of Negan’s iconic leather jacket, red scarf, bat, and some lines from Jeffrey Dean Morgan himself.
While it may seem like an unexpected addition, this isn’t the first time Tekken has introduced guest fighters. TV and comic book characters are unusual though, as we haven’t seen TV characters introduced since Soul Calibur IV, which featured Yoda and Darth Vader.
In addition to Negan, Tekken fans can and expect to enjoy Anna Williams, the personal bodyguard of Kazuya Mishima, and Lei Wulong, the wise-cracking cop, in the season two DLC pass. A release date has not been announced.
