    A little girl with a minigun? She'll fit right in with the boxing velociraptor, inconsistent bug ninja, and the dude with the jaguar for a head.

    Oh, she is from Tekken 6. Yeah, she is a robot who can use her head as a bomb. c:

    Armor King is not just one person....


    There was also 2 Kings from what I read. So at least 4 Jaguar Headed Men.

    Yay Steam team! You get barely anything! Just be grateful you were allowed to be on the bus.

    ... Which no lie, I really am grateful that we're allowed on the bus. Swag would be great, but I'm just so happy I get to get back into Tekken.

    It pleases me that you with your avatar corrects the history of King

    Im really excited to play this... Less so at the thought of DLC charecters.

    As long as I get king, jack, bryan, marduk, nina and julia/michelle Im happy.

    I still play tekken tag 2 most nights and love it. Backwards compatability FTW

    "Early 2017" That's not June! Stop the presses!

    Such a long wait. ;(

    It'll be on PC and XBox?? How did that happen? And will Eddie Gordo be in it? Because that's basically the selling point.
