New Tekken 7 Trailer Reveals More Backstories

A new “Character Episode” trailer was released for Tekken 7 yesterday, re-introducing memorable faces that we have come to know in past installments.

In addition, the official Japanese website of the game was updated to reveal the backstories of the characters from the trailer. Thanks to a rough translation provided by YellowMotion, we now have a fair idea as to why Marshall Law, Hwoarang, Bryan Fury, Feng Wei, Bob, and Devil Jin are participating in the seventh iteration of The King of Iron Fist Tournament.

Marhsall Law
Marhsall Law is still spending his days paying back the debt to his son’s bills.

As he was busy, the students of his dojo became decreasing. In light of rumors that there is an incredibly strong fighter at the tournament, Law entered himself to see if the fighter is suitable to be a teacher for his dojo.

Jin Kazama, the man Hwoarang admitted to be his rival, became the head of The Mishima Zaibatsu and declared war against the world.

However, Jin disappeared right after the war started. Curious as to who could so easily take down his rival, Hwoarang has begun a search to locate Jin.

Bryan Fury
While enjoying the war zone in the urban area that became his battlefield, Bryan found a new prey to lock horns against.

Feng Wei
Still training to destroy all other fighting styles, Feng has begun a new journey to prove himself as a warrior.

To prove to the world that he is the strongest, Bob entered the tournament. However, while heading to the venue, his car was caught in a mysterious explosion.

Devil Jin
Jin was caught by The United Nations Army after he defeated Azazel. While being taken away in a helicopter, the devil inside Jin took over and tore off his restraints. With the helicopter destroyed, Jin flew away into the horizon.

Tekken 7 hits shelves on June 2 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Pre-ordering the digital version nets you an exclusive Tekken 7 theme alongside Eliza, the seemingly immortal blood-sucking vampire.
