http://tekkengamer.com/2017/04/18/to...rada-tekken-7/

then there's this article with the accompanying video, this guy does mention that the most requested character he has noticed first, is kiryu. I timestamped the part he talks about it

https://youtu.be/IEwrMKz2ZhM?t=22m36s

here's another.
https://youtu.be/UrR7mbD5BJk?t=2m24s

so...the demand is clearly there, i'm sure it's reached harada by now.

here are the tweets from Katsuhiro Harada, asking fans themselves who they want to be the first guest character, due out in winter 2017. From both chains combined, Kiryu is the most requested character.

https://twitter.com/Harada_TEKKEN/st...51496349663232

And the rest of this OP is just convos I had with other gaffers about how awesome this would be.

The season pass mentions 2 guest characters and the pass is available to all platforms.

Like I said in this previous thread, Kiryu is probably my favorite character...ever.

I really thought this was threadworthy, that this is notable...should go noticed.

Sorry if this is too much.

thanks. bye.

Edit: To clarify, whoever this is surpassed Kiryu on replies, likes, and retweets. Kiryu is second, with Geese coming in third.

Kiryu is way too big to fight human sized characters in Tekken:


It just wouldn't be fair he could easily just crush them by stepping on them if he wanted to.

Kiryu would've been a great fit in a Virtua Fighter game since the two games are made by Sega. If only Sega MADE ANOTHER VIRTUA FIGHTER GAME!!!

Being in Tekken is pretty cool though.

Yup, that's what I was thinking too. Very disappointed this is not the Kiryu that I expected.

However.


If there's any Sega character who should be in a Tekken game first, it's Akira Yuki from Virtua Fighter. He's already in DOA and the Dengeki Bunko fighting game. Time for VF to crash Tekken.

Okay. So. What you're saying is that we need to tone it down and put in Amon, instead.

Lightsabers, cannons, hammers, umbrellas, aerial bombardments, and lawn furniture included.

Ya know what, I want the reverse. Dragunov in Yakuza.

Also if this happens, that means Virtua Fighter exists as a video game in the Street Fighter universe. Think about it.

Edit: And so is Dead or Alive because DOA and VF are in the same universe too!

If they do make him canon like Akuma, then Kiryu should be Kazuya's lost long brother. With heart, with or without the Devil gene.

Also I don't mean to brag, but I think I am responsible for what is probably, the closest poll in neogaf history

Jin can also have a run in with Kiryu and then have a Joker moment

I don't see it happening because nobody in the West would care, but it would be perfect. Kiryu demands respect with that Mishima-esque swagger.

Would be cool if he had a heat gauge instead of rage.

Dragunov would be a good boss in Yakuza. Like the American from Y3 except he wouldn't have to talk with a hilariously awful accent.
