Akuma Will Be The Only Street Fighter Character In Tekken 7
Tekken 7 made waves recently when it was revealed that Street Fighter character Akuma would not only be a playable character, but actually be a part of the game’s story. This led many fans to wonder whether other Street Fighter characters would be making it into the game, but according to the Tekken 7 producer Katsuhiro Harada, don’t get your hopes up, as Akuma is the only planned Street Fighter character to make it into the game.
In an interview with PlayStation Lifestyle, it was revealed that while Harada was never a big fan of having crossover characters, Akuma fit the bill perfectly, as his Dark Hado backstory fits in well with the Mishima family feud, which Tekken 7 is set to conclude in this game. It’s also been said that while Harada isn’t opposed to doing any other crossovers down the line, for now Akuma is the only Street Fighter character planned for the game.
Tekken 7 is set to release in Japanese arcades on March 18th of this year. a PlayStation 4 version is also being developed.
