Bandai Namco recently released a new Tekken 7 trailer, which shows Lee Chaolan (and his alter ego Violet) returning to the series of Tekken. They have also released some new screenshots and information about the upcoming story mode. According to a press release from Bandai Namco:
“Lee Chaolan was adopted by Heihachi Mishima, meant to be a rival to his son Kazuya. As Kazuya’s adopted brother, Lee was given the same education and upbringing fitting of the Mishima clan. After being expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu for reasons unknown, Lee founded Violet Systems, a tech company specializing in development on humanoid robotics, and was quite successful.”
Tekken 7 will also have a deeper story which contains “several hours of gameplay (including side stories that players can unlock progressively). Not only can you play as the Mishimas in Story Mode, but there are other arcs that involve fighters outside of the Mishima clan, such as Claudio Serafino, and his group of exorcists”.
“The Archers of Sirius are a group of exorcists who have been banishing supernatural entities from this world since ancient times. A highly secretive organization, its existence is unknown to the public. Although it is not known how their existence was revealed, the Archers of Sirius were suddenly approached by the Mishima Zaibatsu. They were heavy-handedly requested by the Mishima Zaibatsu to join their conglomerate, but naturally refused. This did not stop the persistent pressure from Mishima Zaibatsu, however.”
New screenshots have also been revealed, showing a very young Kazuya fighting his father, with more details to be revealed during the story of the game. A new stage is also revealed for Claudio, which showcases the beautiful look of Tekken 7.
Tekken 7 will release on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in early 2017.
