^ I second that.

I've always wanted to see characters from either VF or Dead or Alive appear in Tekken.

I think it'd be pretty awesome to have guest fighters from other non bamco fighting games just to promote solidarity in the FGC.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh I didn't even think of that but that would be too good. I doubt it though, because even though sega and namco have worked together in the past, DOA has had VF guest characters and DOA exects do not like Namco exects.

I would love to see Akira and Wolf.


I mean I love a lot of VF characters. Lau, Jacky, Sarah, Lion, Vanessa, Goh, Jean.


If it is more SF characters, i would like to see Dhalsim (he would be broken as fuck in tekken lol), Zangief, Sagat, Guile, Alex or Chun-Li

I hope its not some dumb pokemon character, maybe a Dragon Ball character like goku or vegeta lol, that would be real weird.

I doubt Nintendo would let their characters be added when Tekken 7 is not on one of their consoles (So far at least), also:

So no Goku or Vegeta or whatever, will be someone from another game, that doesn't meant it's a fighting game too.

So much potential! I'd love to see some KOF characters... or Darkstalkers would be hella hype. I want Geese vs Hei and Demitri vs Kazuya!

We saw Harada tweet that picture of Ryu and Chun that one time, tho...

I'd be OK with Ryu and Chun. It wouldn't be all that interesting, but they're good characters.

but i thought pokemon was license to bandai-namco too?

I know it doesn't necessarily mean a fighting game, but that's a good question to what would fit in the tekken world?

gon didn't really fit but they still added him, so i guess it is real random guess.

Yeah, with Pokken and all, I just don't see Nintendo letting their characters be outside of their own console, specialy with Tekken 7 not being in Nintendo's consoles so far.

Akuma "doesn't fit" as well, he was added anyways.

Harada said in this interview that if he could, he'd like to add Geese Howard:

He also said that if he could choose two guest characters, one would be from a fighter, and another wouldn't, so those things are worth being considered, doesn't mean he'll do them though, we could get two characters from fighters or two characters from non fighters.

Same here all the way! I personally want Lion and/or Shun Di, and Lei Fri

But I honestly think they might add 2 more street fighter guest characters as also a means of getting a head start on making tekken X Street Fighter as also a means of being more convincing that the crossober will actually come to fruition

Man, if Harada was a fan of King of Fighters of any degree, it would be so awesome to see Terry Bogard in T7, it would be super hype

To me, Sabin from FFVI would make a perfect choice.

But I always pick different teams

Could be Bandai anime characters. Pretty sure people would be hype if either Spike from Cowyboy Bebop or Major from GITS was in Tekken.

I can't think of non-Soul Namco characters people would be excited about. Brad from Urban Reign? Albatross from Rolling Thunder? Hardly anyone played those games.

Non street fight guest fighters would be nice. I would definitely like to see Geeze Howard and hit people with Rage Art Raging Storm. However considering in the leak video of Heihachi doing the Dragon Punch Nina had Chun-Li's fighting stance, I would guess Chun-Li is at least one of those characters.

New game mode might be a Tag mode since Harada mentioned they considered putting it into future games. Tekken Ball? Force Mode? Tekken Bowl? Tekken Card Tournament? Could be anything, but whatever it is, it should be fun.

Since I don't know many other fighting games....I suppose it may be one character from POKKEN and one from Naruto, as it happened with Lars many years ago...

But I hope it will be something better than this! Some sexy guy...............
What about Kratos and Ashura (Asura's Wrath)???

Dooooon't worry, the most important characters will be in for sure. Lei will be whether a surprise in the game or will be revealed shortly before the release of it to create hype

I really doubt they ever would do something as cool and amazing as this. That would deserve a whole new game, really.

As long as they don't add even more stupid characters from SF, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Katamari or Mario... Oh God, they have so many imbecile possibilities, this is going to be awful.
