If there's one place where video game crossovers are rife, it's definitely in the fighting game genre. There's Rash from Battletoads
in Killer Instinct
and Assassin's Creed II
's Ezio Auditore in SoulCalibur V
amongst plenty others. There are even games where crossovers are the entire premise, like the Marvel vs. Capcom
series, Street Fighter X Tekken
and Nintendo's Super Smash Brothers
. That doesn't make it any less surprising when a new crossover comes along. Now, Final Fantasy XV
's Noctis Lucis Caelum is set to join the roster of Bandai Namco's Tekken 7
How did Noctis get drawn to the King of the Iron Fist tournament I hear you ask? Turns out it's a favour to Tekken
's Lars Alexandersson as shown in Noctis' reveal trailer, which you can take a look at below.
Noctis will be coming to Tekken 7
as part of "DLC 3" in Spring 2018.
