People often joke about the ridiculousness of some of the characters that Capcom and NetherRealm have trotted out for Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat over the years. But neither franchise can compete with Bandai Namco’s Tekken, especially since the developer recently confirmed that Kuma and Panda will be included in the upcoming Tekken 7.
In Tekken lore, Kuma is the super-intelligent ursine bodyguard of Heihachi Mishima, the franchise’s big bad. Meanwhile, Panda serves the same role for Ling Xiaoyu, Mishima’s adopted granddaughter.
Tekken 7 will be released for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in the first few months of 2017. You can get your first look at Kuma and Panda in the trailer embedded above.
