After both of them poked some fun directed towardsYoshinori OnoandCapcom, they made sure to treat us with the latest gameplay trailer for Tekken 7.
The latest piece of information brought fantastic news along with it that Tekken 7 is going to continue with the third season of the DLC.

He then takes a vow to get revenge on the people who did him wrongby honing his martial arts abilities. Both of the latest characters shown will be appearing when the most recent Season Pass arrives onSeptember 2019.
The new DLC slate will also be adding another new character with an unknown feature in theWinter 2019, even a new character with a new stage inSpring 2020. The latest update will also bring in loads of new moves along with new statistics display, an upgraded UI, enhanced practice sessions, and a newReplay Mode. Also, a tips function is also getting added in Tekken 7.
However, the new characters are not the only reason that Tekken is being talked about currently. During Evo 2019 a small clip was played ofSnake, and it caught everyones attention. Snake was caught saying that The Tekken just played was badass. The fans depicted this sudden random appearance as a sign of a crossover event, but as it would seem it was not meant to be taken seriously.
Snake has previously appeared in fighting games likeSuper Smash BrosandBrawl and Ultimate. So it was not farfetched to see him in appearing in Tekken. But the clip was only played as a joke for only the people presented in Evo 2019. However, the clip got leaked and instantly went viral. Evo then came in for a little damage control, apologizing through their official Twitter account saying it was just meant to be a harmless joke. They said they were sorry for not consulting Bandai and that they had no idea about the clip.
David Hayter, who voices Snake, released a tweet expressing his displeasure regarding the whole situation. He said that Evo did not just forget to consult Konami or Bandai; they also forgot to ask him about the clip.
Tekken 7 is already a hot topic in the community and seeing the uproar regarding Snake appearing in Tekken, Bandai might just do a little crossover, which could prove to be in their favor.
