Other crossover characters in 'Tekken 7'

Geese Howard is not the first crossover character to be introduced in "Tekken 7." In fact, he is not even the first character from the SNK series. Asumi Todoh from the "Art of Fighting" series has already been introduced into the roster. Akuma from Capcom's "Street Fighter" series is also present in the game. These crossovers are usually a great way of ensuring that fans of the other series of fighting video games also become interested in "Tekken 7."

For instance, due to the inclusion of Akuma, "Street Fighter" fans will also likely pick up a copy of "Tekken 7." Capcom and Bandai Namco have previously also partnered together for a game back when "Street Fighter X Tekken" was released for fans. SNK and Capcom have also partnered previously for games such as "Capcom Vs. SNK." However, the Bandai Namco and SNK partnership is relatively newer and such is full of opportunities for new games and concepts.
