Tekken 7 Getting Noctis from Final Fantasy XV as DLC Character

Bandai Namco has released a reveal trailer for Noctis Lucis Caelum in Tekken 7. That’s right, the protagonist of Final Fantasy XV is entering the ring of the King of the Iron Fist tournament. He brings all of his tricks to the arena, and the video makes it look like he’ll be a ton of fun to play.

Here’s what the video description has to say: “Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV enters the TEKKEN 7 ring! Wielding his signature Engine Blade, Noctis is ready to deal heavy hard-hitting blows as he takes on the likes of Yoshimitsu, Devil Jin, Jack 7, and the rest of the TEKKEN 7 fighters when he enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament in spring 2018!” The video shows us even more. We get to see Noctis in action, indeed wielding the Engine Blade, but also summoning Royal Weapons with the Armiger and using his signature Warp Attack. The video also reveals the story behind Noct’s involvement in Tekken 7. Noctis gets a call from his old friend Lars, who asks that we defeat some kind of “rampaging beast.” We’re not going to spoil the story here, but it gets unexpectedly funny.

Noctis is going to be a part of the Tekken 7 DLC 3. You’ll have to arm yourself with patience, though, because it’ll be a little while until he makes his way to the game. The video indicates that the Noctis DLC character will launch in Spring 2018, on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. If you wanna whet your appetite, though, you can check out the reveal trailer below.
