Kuma and Panda announced for Tekken 7

December 12, 2016

Bandai Namco have announced the two loveable bears, Kuma and Panda, will be returning in Tekken 7 as playable characters.

The trailer showcases the duo doing some fancy footwork in the ring, with both having unique move sets as opposed to being mere palette swaps like in previous games. Kuma’s style seems focused on shorter juggles that push back opponents, while Panda knocks opponents into the air to juggle them.

The announcement trailer, embedded below, also shows alternative costumes for the pair. Kuma is shown wearing a futuristic cyborg-like mask while Panda is shown wearing a cute pink hate. Tekken 7 is slated for release on Steam, Xbox One and PS4 in 2017.
