Tekken 7 was released for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One back in June 2017, and has received extensive post-launch support from the development team. In addition to returning characters as DLC, such as Anna, Armor King, and Zafina, we’ve also gotten guest combatants such as Geese Howard and Negan.

The game recently entered its third season of content, which kicked off with some brand new moves for all the cast, plus an overhaul of the health bar system design. Looking ahead, Tekken 7 is set to receive frame data, another new character, and an extra stage as Season Three continues into 2020.
