If they want me to pre-order Tekken 7 then Kiryu will be invited to the party, if they hate me and my money then Kiryu will be left at the bus stop.

Your move Namco...

That could get me to buy Tekken 7 earlier then planned, no joke. Plus Kiryu would be perfect for Tekken with his crazy heat moves, rage and power-ups.

even if this becomes true (although very unlikely based on what Zerox said), the dlc won't be out till like Christmas time.

Getting him into Tekken before a Sega fighting game is the most Sega thing Sega has done this decade.

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

I've said this before harada would be near deity levels if he manages to get geese

These polls are always skewed :D always seem to be filled with niche characters that dont really sell anymore copies in a big volume to be worth the investment and business deal of a guest character.

Im guessing its going to be Tifa from FF7 or something along those Akuma lines of mass appeal. Or maybe just another SF character.

Day One if Kiryu makes the roster.

My first thought was "Wat? Why not a VF or DOA character to keep in line with the fighting game crossover trend that's all the rage these days?" Then I realized the Mishimas are pretty much yakuza sans the tats. So yeah, that'd be a pretty dope showdown to see.

I think we need to clarify though that Harada tweeted twice. in the second tweet, there seems to be a lot more retweets of Kiryu san.

I suspect that the most that players in the West can hope for is at least one guest character choice that meets them halfway. It seems safe to conclude that what Japanese players would be most likely to buy will be prioritized with such decisions, though I wouldn't say that Kazuma is an improbable choice when accounting for the continued success of Yakuza there.

Worst case scenario for the Western FGC, Harada decides to make the salt mine opened by Lucky Chloe look like a salt packet by adding Marie Rose.

Tekken is easily my least favorite fighting game series and I haven't really gotten into one since TTT2.

Kiryu would make it a day 1 purchase.

I'd rather Sega make AM2 do a Fighters Megamix 2 then see Kiryu appear in Tekken to be honest. The fact they never made a crossover fighter again still boggles my mind.

Still might grab Tekken 7 irregardless of Kiryu's inclusion or not.
