TEKKEN 7 And FINAL FANTASY XV Game Directors Discuss About TEKKEN 7 DLC Character Noctis

Katsuhiro Harada and Hajime Tabata, directors of Tekken 7 and Final Fantasy XV, sit down to discuss about Noctis joining Tekken 7's roster and how this collaboration came to be.

Noctis Lucis Caelum just joined the Tekken 7 roster, a couple of days ago, as a DLC character and game directors Katsuhiro Harada(Tekken 7) and Hajime Tabata(Final Fantasy XV) comment about the character crossing over to the Tekken series. Check it out, and don't forget to turn those subtitles on!



"Noctis is a member of the royal family. The tale of his path from prince to king  propels Final Fantasy XV's story on forward", says Mr. Tabata.

"His area of expertise is swordplay and he also uses magic that will be familiar to anyone who is a fan of Final Fantasy
In addition, he also wields some special abilities that are particular to Final Fantasy XV.
"

Regarding Noctis being included in Tekken 7, Mr. Tabata says that "not only does he excel as a fighter but he's also a keen fisherman. We added him to Tekken in a way that includes little aspects of his personality."

Mr. Harada tells us that collaborating with Final Fantasy wasn't a sudden or new idea as he thinks of both series being highly representative of the PlayStation 1 era when games were polygonal. He also mentions that the way that each of their stories [Tekken and Final Fantasy] developed had a number of similarities.

"Several generations have passed for these 2 IPs and they have gone down completely separate paths."

Like Mr. Harada mentions, fans of both series may have taken different paths and Noctis joining the Tekken series will most likely have fans of both franchises looking forward to play as him.

Tekken 7 is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.
