Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has announced that guest characters will eventually be appearing in Tekken 7 in the form of DLCs.
The first will come soon after the launch, and will feature a new and as yet not detailed game mode, and fifty plus costumes for all your fashion, color-changing needs.
Winter 2017 and spring 2018 will each feature one exclusive playable guest character “from other video games’ licenses.” Each guest will come with a special stage and costume to suit their origin.
Though this additional content is included in the Season Pass, each batch of content will be available to purchase individually. You won’t get the fancy thirty-five metallic costumes that come with the Season Pass, either.
Bandai Namco also announced that “all players from all platforms will also enjoy free characters panels they will be able to use to customize their favorite character’s image displayed during the loading screen.”
This feature will be available after the Tekken 7‘s launch, though no specific date has been set. Such customization is the happy result of Bandai Namco’s “partnership with various worldwide artists.”
