Also, a Tyrant from Umbrella :/.

Don't misunderstand me. I'd prefer Bruce over this guy, but his story(as Anna's) is SO tied to the Mishima Zaibatsu. Maybe that's what they tried to avoid(but keeping Anna for the ecchi fanbase and etc).

I in fact don't like the story mode. Nor the graphics(even they're SO awesome but everything looks like wet plastic). Music is totally off(where are the charisma from T2-T3-T5-T6?), they introduced weird characters(Gigas, Chloe)...but if they really wanted to close the Mishima arch, I think they should have kept the basic characters and just adding 3-5 newcomers to introduce a new arch. Then in the end we had this is not the REAL end of the arch because Kazuya and Jin are keeping their rivalry and etc. Making FOOLS out of Paul and Ganryu was a bad move.


OK, I'll shut up, just my opinion. But as everyyone has an asshole, everyone has an opinion too.


Whatever!

The irony is that I sprite the muscles the same way, as wet plastic.

I forgot to say, as they introduced SO many newcomers; why not bending them in the storyline? Only JoJofino is represented(Kazumi...well, she's more like a flashback than anything else, and only to "explain" who's the evil spirit under HonMaru(could she be the one who possessed Jinpachi?). They could have do something like SFV, but of course, Tekken 7 has SO many more characters, but avoiding those who we know their reasons(Miguel, Panda, Leo, etc), the story mode would be the PERFECT point to show their intentions, who they are, etc. It was a totally lost chance.

Kazumi's inclusion into Tekken 7's story was to explain where Kazuya got his Devil powers from, it's been confirmed a while back that the Devil Gene and the evil force that possessed Jinpachi Mishima are two completely different entities.

As far as including the newcomers or other characters into the main storyline, the only ones that would make sense are the ones connected to the ideals of the main pieces of the story since it mainly focuses on the ever-strengthening conflict between the Mishima Bloodline, such like Claudio, an exorcist, working alongside Heihachi because he wants to kill [Devil] Kazuya and [Devil] Jin almost as much as Heihachi. I don't think including any of the other new characters would make sense in entwining them with the story of T7 due to how different and separated they all are from it, it wouldn't make much sense.

A lot of characters have been introduced showing how they were affected by the Mishima conflict, not how they affect the story. That alone sounds like they exist for their premise / archetype / foundation, however you want to call it, not for how they can pull their weight into the future. Miguel lost his sister in a bombing raid, so he fights. Steve is a test tube baby, so he fights. Leo remembers her mother, so she fights.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Time to go a little deeper with the newbies...

Leroy Smith: While everyone already knows about the gang war that took his family and his home 50 years ago, there's some more light shined on what went down during it and afterwards. During the gang war, he was shot in the eye (!) and presumed dead until a merchant ship saved him. He then went to Hong Kong to learn Wing Chun. 5 decades later, he is a master of the art and hears that the gangs behind the newly named Big Apple War are now in a weakened state... this is the time to strike. When he came back, he ripped the gangs apart and found a leader who spilled the beans: Turns out that the Mishima Zaibatsu were behind the war 50 years ago. With his trusty dog, he now seeks answers.

Fahkumram: In his youth, he was hailed as a soon-to-be champion until he got struck by lightning. Somehow, he survived it and became the country's youngest champion at 18. He was hailed as a hero, got married, even had a daughter... but the peace wouldn't last. A group of mysterious men approached him and threaten to throw the next fight. He responded by knocking them all out. He was nearly assassinated by them, but he would kill many of these guys in self-defense. He would find out all too late that these people were corrupted government officials. These crooked people arrested and imprisoned him and took his family hostage. He has spent the last 4 years in life or death battles in underground locations descending into cynicism and violent rage when the military gave him an offer he couldn't refuse: Enter the King of Iron Fist tournament. Win and you and your family will gain freedom. With no choice, he takes them up on their offer.

fuckyourmom's backstory is good, the being struck by lightning is completely unnecesary and made me laugh two times; first when it happened and second when it did not matter.

Seadragon's summary leaves out that it's apparently the reason for his freak physique, as stated in his bio on the Tekken wikia.

It was Kolin's doing by accident.  See, the lightning bolt was made to grant life to Nash but for some reason the trajectory missed and the lightning hit Fahkum somehow increasing his abilties 10 fold.  The government officials are in fact part of The Secret Society and that is why they keep this guy on a leash until he is strong enough to dethrone Gill and take over the group.

Meanwhile I ponder as to what Jinpachi Mishima have against New York to approve the bloodshed 50 years ago.
