It seems that Injustice and Mortal Kombat aren’t the only fighting games to recruit from out of their own league, as Final Fantasy XV Hero Noctis Is The Latest DLC Character In Tekken 7.
Noctis Lucis Caelum, the Crown Prince, and heir to the throne of Lucis. While his memorable adventure in Final Fantasy XV carries on, it seems that the Prince has a friend in need. If we have learned anything from Final Fantasy XV, friendship means everything to Noctis.
You can see from the trailer that Noctis takes a call from Tekken fighter, Lars. While Noctis won’t be participating in the tournament as a group effort like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in Injustice 2, he is a formidable force on his own.
Noctis has a unique fighting style granted to him by a crystal that grants his kingdom the power they need to defend it. The trailer shows the crown prince making good use of the legendary regalia weapons that he gathers on his journey by going to the tombs of previous kings of the kingdom of Lucis.
What really makes Noctis stand out from the crowd is his ability to use magic from the Final Fantasy series, as we see peeks of him using fire and ice in the trailer above.
Noctis’s Rage Art is also very impressive as he uses his teleport enemy and quick use of the deadly regalia weapons to deliver swift and deadly blows to kill his opponent.
The trailer ends with Lars and Noctis enjoying a fishing trip, which has become Noctis’s Shtick, as it is how you level him up in the game, and how the PSVR also has an upcoming VR Experience where you carry out fishing too.
Prince Noctis is expected to land for Tekken 7 on Spring 2018, and he will be the second DLC character, following Geese Howard from the Fatal Series games, another old-school fighting game.
