In keeping with the latest trend of fighting games featuring characters from other popular franchises, Bandai Namco has announced their latest partnership with Square Enix in order to bring Final Fantasy XV protagonist Prince Noctis Lucis Caelum to Tekken 7.
Noctis will be joining the likes of legendary fighters such as Yoshimitsu, Devin Jin, Jack 7 and other renowned Tekken warriors.
Prince Noctis will bring with him his iconic Engine Blade, giving him the ability to dish out heavy, hard-hitting blows. In addition to Noctis, it looks like a stage inspired by the Coernix Gas Station from Final Fantasy XV will be making an appearance as a playable stage.
No definitive release date has been announced for the Final Fantasy cross-over DLC—however, Bandai Namco said it should arrive sometime in Spring of 2018.
Tekken 7 initially released back in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows and Arcades. The game was generally well received from both fans of the series and the press alike.
