More content is headed to Tekken 7 in the near future, and developer Bandai Namco just dropped a major tease as to who the fighter could be. A new trailer for Tekken 7's DLC 18 is quite short, but it details where the new fighter is coming from.
The Tekken franchise is one that prides itself on having a diverse cast of characters from regions all over the world. There are characters from Britain, the United States, Brazil, Japan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Monaco, and more. Even NieR Automata's 2B was nearly a guest fighter in Tekken, apparently. The newest DLC fighter will be from Poland.
The Tekken 7 DLC trailer is only 35 second long, but over half of it is text, intro, and outro animation. The important footage starts with a few shots of what looks to be a European country. This quickly shifts to imagery of someone getting out of a car while speaking Polish with subtitles. The text reads, "I must win for the people of Poland."
The upcoming Polish Tekken 7 character who walks out of the vehicle is a woman, and the words "Prime Minister" were used right before she started talking, so it seems like she potentially holds a position in politics. It will be interesting to see how this fighter stacks up against the best fighters in Tekken as more is revealed. Fans will not have to wait too much longer to find out the details, as the next DLC character is joining Tekken 7 in early spring 2021, according to the teaser.
In the past, social media was a lot simpler. From the late 90s to the late 00s, message boards were a prevalent way to engage with others who shared similar interests in gaming. Dedicated communities, such as Tekken, were defined by these early passageways of information.
Unfortunately, the increase in accessibility from other mediums over time causes website traffic to become stagnant. While sites such as GameFAQs continue to adhere to this formula, other websites that were once beacons for entire communities become archaic. Worst case scenario, such remnants of the past have no choice but to shut down.
Tekken Zaibatsu, one of the last remaining relics of this bygone era, shut its doors over the weekend. At its core, the website was known for being a significant source of information spanning across Tekken's history. These included promotional artwork, screenshots, and frame data for games in the series long before it became a staple in Tekken 7's DLC.
Beneath the surface lied the Zaibatsu message boards. Players of all skill levels congregated together, discussing the games and their strategies. Planning meet-ups for various sessions, local tournaments, and major tournaments was also common. It was a place for smack talk, but it was also a place where curious minds could find support among other fellow fans of the series.
With the rise of modern social media and community apps such as Twitter and Discord, these discussions moved elsewhere and traffic dwindled. The site owner, Castel, made the decision to shut down the forums in December but expressed interest in archiving the site for historical purposes. If one were to go to the Tekken Zaibatsu website now, they would be greeted with this:
