Kunimitsu II will bring her ninja ways to Tekken 7 this fall


Kunoichi Unmasked

Bandai Namco has revealed the first DLC character headed to Tekken 7 this fall, kicking off the 3D fighter's fourth season of content. As previously suspected, the returning warrior is none other than young kunoichi Kunimitsu.

Well, that's sort of a half-truth. As the original Kunimitsu, who made her debut as a sub-boss in the original Tekken, is getting on in years, the family's ninja tradition has fallen on the shoulders of her daughter, who will don the faithful mask and take up her mother's ways in Tekken 7. It also seems that vengeance runs in the family, as Kunimitsu II will also continue her lineage's dogged pursuit of the master warrior, Yoshimitsu.

Alongside Kunimitsu, a new trailer also shows off the serene new stage "Vermillion Gate," which will arrive alongside the ninja lass when she arrives later this fall. A free update, scheduled to drop within the same time-frame, will also add new moves, a new rank, and "Online Play enhancements" such as that holy grail of fighting games: a Wi-Fi indicator.

In related news, Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada has proudly announced that Tekken 7 has sold an impressive six million copies since its initial release back in 2017. This figure pushes overall sales in the Tekken franchise past the 50 million mark. That's a helluva lot of Devil Jin spammers.

Tekken 7 is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
