It has been revealed, via a press release, that characters Bob and Master Raven will be coming to Tekken 7. Bob is a returning character who first appeared in Tekken 6, while Master Raven is a new character. Tekken does have a character named Raven, and so Master Raven’s actual connection to Raven is unknown. Two reveal trailers were also shown to fans at EVO 2016. Both trailers are available below.
“Introduced in Tekken 6, Bob (full name: Robert Richards) is an American fighter that practices Freestyle Karate as his chosen fighting style. Possessing great strength, uncanny speed, and a wide range of attacks, Bob is one of the most well rounded fighters in the Tekken series.”
“The original Raven made his debut in Tekken 5 with origins that are still murky today. Now Master Raven enters the fight in Tekken 7, executing her ninjutsu fighting skills with exceptional power and precision. Master Raven has no problem tearing her opponents apart in The King of Iron Fist Tournament.”
Both characters will be available from the launch of the game. Tekken 7 is set to release for PS4, Xbox One and PC in early 2017 with the game launching in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Australasia (Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea and surrounding islands). I personally cannot wait to get back into Tekken. Bob was an interesting character, and Master Raven looks very cool. What do you think of these characters? Let us know in the comments below.
