Final Fantasy XV’s Prince Noctis Joins Tekken 7 In Spring 2018

Final Fantasy XV Preview: I Question My Allegiance

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.

Bandai Namco Announces Some Fly Tekken Duds

Bandai Namco Announces Some Fly Tekken Duds

If you’re looking for a way to tell the world that you may have thrown your son off of a cliff or just want everyone to know who the true King of Iron Fist happens to be, Bandai Namco has you covered. In celebration of the latest entry in their wildly popular 3D fighting game, Tekken 7, Bandai Namco spared no expense in keeping you looking stylish.

On Sept 27, 2016 Bandai Namco announced the luxurious Tekken 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket, blessing fans with the gift of high fashion. Sukajan is a style of bomber jacket that traces its origins to post Second World War Japan, notably to areas surrounding Allied military bases, as they were a popular souvenir for American soldiers. The jackets typically resemble standard bomber jackets, but with a silkier texture and bright, shining colours. Though they may look brash and loud, the intricate embroidery on these jackets make them quite a fashion statement, and they’re often reversible, which is pretty neat too.

Namco Bandai’s version lives up to all of those expectations and then some. Designed by a former contestant on Project Runway, a popular fashion design reality show, the TEKKEN 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket is extremely detailed and offers two sides both inspired by the curmudgeonly patriarch of the Mishima family. One side brings together bright burgundy and gold with a stylized depiction of Fujin, the Japanese god of wind, while the other paints a more traditional picture, dark grey with a roaring lion, reminiscent of Heihachi’s signature Gi.

It’s a nice looking jacket, and it comes with an estimated $450 price tag. Don’t worry about the cost, however, as all Tekken 7 Heihachi Sukajan Jacket comes with a copy of Tekken 7 at no additional charge. Tekken 7 currently does not have a release date but is expected in early 2017.
