Bandai Namco dropped the trailer showing the new addition to the Tekken 7 roster and the game’s 3rd DLC. Noctis Lucis Caelum is the new upcoming contestant on the Iron Fist Tournament. Noctis is the main protagonist in Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 15. Since we are huge fans of both Tekken and Final Fantasy franchises here at NEO-GEN, we are very excited for this crossover.
Noctis is not the first crossover character to Tekken 7. The trailer starts by showing a little backstory for the crossover, which is similar to what the game did with Akuma. Moreover, Noctis’s move set in the trailer looks very promising. He performs many short-range attacks using a range of his signature melee weapons. Also, for long-range attacks, there is Noctis’s wrap-ability. The trailer shows Noctis using some magic attacks. Moreover, Noctis also uses Armiger when his rage art is activated. Armiger is Noctis’s ability to wield all of the Royal Arms at once. The trailer reveals that there will be a Final Fantasy 15 stage as part of the DLC as well. Here is the reveal trailer by Bandai Namco. Maybe this means that we might see some Tekken characters in some upcoming Final Fantasy titles?
Tekken 7 was released all current generations platforms including iOS/Android mobile platforms. However, the game is still not been released for Nintendo Switch even though the game is perfect for handheld/console like the Switch. Tekken 7 most likely will hit the Switch at some point. After all Bandai Namco was behind Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii . Let us now what do you thing of the new addition and if you think the game should come to the Switch.
