#Bandai Namco has just officially unveiled the first downloadable content (DLC) pack for its highly popular fighting video game, "#Tekken 7." The company even released a brand new trailer for the DLC, which featured the game's director Katsuhiro Harada playing a mean game of double-lane bowling. Some fans, however, are not that pleased about the new add-on, seeing as that it apparently only comes with a new bowling mode, called "Ultimate Tekken Bowl," and nothing much else.

New game mode

The recently released trailer doesn't really reveal anything much about the upcoming DLC, aside from it containing the new mode. The mini-game itself looks like a straightforward game of 10-pin bowling, where players will get to choose their favorite "Tekken" character to presumably go against other players or perhaps an AI opponent.

The mini-game itself was originally featured in "#Tekken Tag Tournament" for the PlayStation 2, which was released back in 1997. The mini-game also later appeared in "Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection" in 2005. However, the biggest difference is that the mini-game was already built into the title and did not come as a separate purchase.

Paid update

A lot of fans had criticized the company for releasing the mini-game as a DLC that they had to pay for. All of the other modes that were released for the previous installments were all built-in to the game and did not require any additional purchase. However, some fans apparently don't mind forking out the cash, especially if it means that Bandai Namco may release additional mini-games.

Fan request

As of the moment, most fans are asking the company to revive the "Tekken Ball" mini-game, which was originally made available with "Tekken 3" and then again on "Tekken Tag Tournament 2" for the Nintendo Wii U.

The game itself is a modified game of beach volleyball, only this time with a huge ball that can hurt players.

Another popular mini-game is the "Devil Within" game mode, which was bundled with "Tekken 5." The game essentially offered up a third person action adventure-styled gameplay that pitted Jin Kazama against a horde of enemies. The mini-game was an evolution of the "Tekken Force" mode that was found in the third and fourth installment in the franchise.

Bandai Namco has yet to reveal the pricing and release date for the upcoming "Tekken 7" DLC. Meanwhile, the game itself recently received its first patch a month ago, which was meant to address several issues including problems with the game's matchmaking and connection stability.
