Tekken 7 director Katsuhiro Harada took the stage at Evo 2017 to make a major announcement. Setting up an iconic crossover, the enigmatic Harada announced that Fatal Fury and The King of Fighters fan favorite Geese Howard will arrive in Winter 2017 to Bandai Namco’s latest fighting game.
Here’s how Bandai Namco described the news on their YouTube channel:
Geese Howard from Fatal Fury enters the TEKKEN 7 ring! Facing off against the likes of Heihachi, Paul, and Akuma, Geese Howard sports his signature red hakama training pants as he vows to destroy the TEKKEN fighters. Jump into the arena where the TEKKEN and Fatal Fury universes collide!

Here’s what reviewer Paulmichael Contreras had to say about Tekken 7 when it released earlier this year:
Tekken 7 remains an addicting technical fighter that constantly beckons you for just one more round. There are so many moves for each character, mastering even one complete move set will take nothing less than complete dedication. While it doesn’t feel as though Namco Bandai has done much to innovate in the genre from the surface, those who prefer Tekken’s brand of fighting than those of Capcom’s or NetherRealm’s will be in for a treat. Fans of the series will feel right at home, while those looking to ease their way into the series will find a lot to chew on. All that being said, Tekken 7 is a formidable entry into the fighting genre, and will provide hundreds of hours of fun for fans and newcomers alike. Just be prepared to learn a lot of new stuff.
Geese Howard will be available in Tekken 7 as a downloadable character in Winter 2017.
