Solid Snake Zafina Tekken 7

Snake said to Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada, “That was some good-ass Tekken.” According to commentators Mark “MarkMan” Julio and Aris Bakhtanians, that clip was “only for the people that were here [Audience at Evo 2019 Tekken Stage].”.

Two more DLC characters, as well as a new game feature and a new stage will be added to Tekken 7 through the Season Pass 3 as well in between September 2019 and Spring 2020. However, no further details were shared during the presentation.

At Evo 2019, Bandai Namco revealed first details about season 3, revealing that Tekken 6’s ancient martial artist Zafina will return for Tekken 7, and that the game is getting a brand-new fighter, Leroy Smith.

But perhaps the biggest reveal which was a JOKE, was Metal Gear’s Solid Snake – this was only intended as a joke and not a reveal, however – you could say that this was more like bait to get a reaction from the crowd. Tekken Producer Harada is not shy of introducing characters outside of the Tekken Universe, so seeing Solid snake making an appearance could very well create a path and a future for him in Tekken, Take Smash Bros for example, never say never.
