Noctis Lucis Caelum joins Tekken 7!
The 3rd of 3 guest characters announced for Tekken 7 has been announced during the Tekken World Tour Finals 2017. Noctis Lucis Caelum of Final Fantasy XV from Square Enix joins the roster. He looks to be a flashy and mobile character. Although his default stance has him bare-handed, he can summon his weapon and use magic in strings and animated moves. Noctis is slated to be released in Spring 2018.
It is an unusual addition to the roster as Noctis is from Final Fantasy XV which is a non-fighting game franchise but the pick could be due to the manner of sponshorships. Well known Japanese company Nissin sponsored the Tekken World Tour Finals and is also a known sponsor of FFXV. It is likely that the Square Enix and Namco Bandai collaboration would have been born of this sponsoship.
