Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis is coming to Tekken 7

Not to be outdone by the upcoming inclusion of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Injustice 2, Bandai Namco has announced that Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis will be appearing as a guest fighter in Tekken 7.

Bandai Namco made the announcement during the recent Tekken World Tour Finals tournament along with a full unveiling video which you can watch below. As you can see in the video, Noctis will utilize his signature transforming sword along with unarmed attacks and even magic. The video also has some light story beats which suggest that Final Fantasy XV and Tekken 7 are set in the same universe, but we’re going to go ahead and assume that’s all non-canon.

Noctis will come with his own stage set in Final Fantasy XV’s Hammerhead Garage, allowing fans to watch their favorite characters cheer him on in the background while he puts the beatdown on any Tekken series mainstays who wish to challenge him. A specific release date for Noctis hasn’t yet been confirmed, but the reveal trailer says he should be arriving sometime in spring 2018.
