Bandai Namco this weekend revealed a new downloadable content (DLC) fighter for Tekken 7 in the form of the ninja Kunimitsu. The new character will kick of Season 4 for the popular fighting game title and brings with it a new stage, Vermilion Gates, when it releases this fall. Additionally, another new character and stage are set to release in early Spring 2021.
Interestingly, the new fighter might share the same name and general design as an old Tekken standard, but it would appear that this Kunimitsu that will appear in Tekken 7 is actually the daughter of the original character. It's been some time since Kunimitsu, the character, has appeared in the franchise, so there's no telling what's happened canonically to her at this point or how her daughter came to take up the mantle.
In addition to the new fighter and stage, some upcoming free updates for Tekken 7 include online play enhancements, new movies for every playable fighter, a new top-level rank, and a new points-scoring "Tekken Prowess." Tekken 7 is currently available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. As noted above, Kunimitsu is set to release this fall with no definitive release date.
