Fighting games are notorious for bringing in characters from other franchises. Injustice 2 is the latest that comes to mind, with the recent announcement of the Ninja Turtles joining the game. Tekken 7 is following suit by introducing the latest fighter to enter the fray, Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV!
While the jury is still out on whether or not Final Fantasy XV was a great game, we were pretty fond of it, this is the second time that an outside party has decided to honor the 15th installment. First, Square Enix and Ubisoft mutually honored each other’s IPs with an Assassin’s Creed event in FFXV and AC gave FFXV a nod with easter eggs in Origins. Now, Bandai Namco is installing Noctis into their hard-hitting fighting game and, I have to say, he looks like he belongs. In fact, he may be my new character because his moveset looks like it could be crazy OP.
We’ll just have find out when the 3rd Tekken 7 Fighter DLC releases Spring 2018.
