Tekken 7 Trailer Welcomes Back Nina Williams as Evo 2016 Dates and Lineup Confirmed

January 27, 2016 Written by Michael Briers

Bandai Namco has officially welcomed back series stalwart Nina Williams with the latest trailer for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution

Revealed during the publisher’s dedicated stream to all things Evo 2016, it’s also been confirmed that Tekken 7 will be a part of the event’s lineup when it graces Las Vegas over the weekend of July 15. 

From Super Smash Bros. Melee to PS4 console exclusive Street Fighter V, the roster covers just about every aspect of the fighting game genre, though there is one glaring omission that has sparked debate online: Ultra Street Fighter 4

Given that Melee is a 15-year-old GameCube title, many questioned the decision to drop USF4 from the annual event. However, with Capcom on the verge of launching a sequel, it’s clear Street Fighter V has taken precedent.

Here’s the roster in full:

  • Street Fighter 5
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Super Smash Bros. Wii U
  • Pokken Tournament
  • Mortal Kombat X
  • Guilty Gear Xrd – REVELATOR
  • Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  • Killer Instinct
  • Tekken 7

Evo 2016 is set to take place in Las Vegas from July 15-17.
