Geese Howard in Tekken 7 Bandai Namco

A new trailer featuring Geese Howard, the next member of the Tekken 7 roster, is out this week. And the game’s publisher, Bandai Namco, says the King of Iron Fist tournament’s next combatant will join the competition before the end of the week.

We got our first look at Geese over the summer. Howard was announced during the Tekken 7 portion of this year’s Evolution Championship Series (more commonly known as EVO). Fans were shocked to see a second outside IP represented in Tekken , following the introduction of Street Fighter ’s Akuma, but there didn’t seem to be many complaints from those who saw the announcement live. We still don’t know if Geese will be written into the existing Tekken lore, the way Akuma became a key figure in the story of the Mishima family, but there’s certainly a precedent for it now. But we do know he’ll have his own stage, Howard Estate, when he joins the Tekken 7 roster on Nov. 30.

This isn’t the last time we’ll see the Tekken 7 roster expand. Bandai Namco already confirmed Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum will make his Tekken debut in early 2018. But this week’s release of Geese Howard is the last time we’ll see the Tekken 7 roster grow in 2017. Some fans were probably hoping to see more than two new characters join the roster between June 2, when the game hit North America, and the end of December. But it’s encouraging to see Bandai Namco already has more content planned for 2018.

For an early look at the next addition to the Tekken 7 roster, check out the new Geese Howard trailer that debuted this week. Then head down to the comments and let us know what other characters you’d like to see join the Tekken 7 roster down the road:

Tekken 7 is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
