Geese Howard from Fatal Fury is Tekken 7’s new character

The legendary Fatal Fury and King of Fighters character is Tekken’s latest guest

Tekken 7’s Game Director Katsuhiro Harada has announced that the title’s newest guest character is none other than Geese Howard, the legendary villain in SNK’s Fatal Fury franchise. Harada announced this on stage at the conclusion of the Tekken 7 grand finals at Evo 2017.

Geese joins Street Fighter’s Akuma as the second non-Namco guest character in the fighting game series. While it has been no surprise that Namco and Capcom were working together to bring Street Fighter characters into the Tekken universe, it was a complete surprise that SNK would have one of its most well-known villains as part of the Tekken 7 lore. Capcom and SNK have, of course, crossed over their characters in titles like the Capcom vs. SNK franchise, but this is the first time we’ve seen an SNK character tussle with Namco’s finest.

Tekken 7 fans will be able to play as Geese sometime in the winter of 2017.
