If there's one place where video game crossovers are rife, it's definitely in the fighting game genre. There's Alien from the Alien
movies in Mortal Kombat X
and Assassin Creed 2'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.
