TEKKEN 7 Season 2 Kicks Off September 6th, Adds Anna & Lei, Gameplay System Updates & Rank Gauge


During this weekend's Tokyo TEKKEN Masters 2018 tournament, Bandai Namco announced Season 2 of TEKKEN 7 will officially begin September 6th, 2018. Alongside Anna Williams and Lei Wulong, quite a few gameplay and system updates will be added to the game. These include "Wall Bound" techniques, new Rage Drives, new attacks for all TEKKEN 7 newcomers, a new "Rank Gauge" showing your progress in online Ranked Match, additional system / character balance changes, and more (read the full list of Season 2 updates below)!

TEKKEN 7 - Season 2 updates
  • New "Wall Bound" techniques added for every character.
  • New Rage Drives for some characters who previously had "weaker" Rage Drives (such as Heihachi, Steve, Miguel, Lili & Law).
  • Additional system and character balance changes for the entire roster, including updates to move properties.
  • Every newcomer introduced in TEKKEN 7 will receive new attacks!
  • Updates to Ranked Match system, including a new rank gauge showing your progress towards the next rank (which will NOT be visible to your opponents).
  • New "Simple Combo"' and "Assist" from TEKKEN 7 Story Mode will be added to other modes in the game.

*While TEKKEN 7's Season 2 game/system updates will be free to download, the Season 2 Pass (with all 6 characters) will be priced at 2800 yen in Japan. Pricing for other regions hasn't been officially announced (but expect around $25-$29 USD). Anna and Lei will also be available for purchase individually for 500 yen each ($4.99 USD).

In addition, Bandai Namco released "extended" TEKKEN 7 gameplay trailers for Lei and Anna, showing new combos & techniques (and don't miss the funny special animations near the end of the trailers for some classic TEKKEN humor).
