The latest updates for "Tekken 7" reveal the official Release Date of "Final Fantasy XV's" protagonist, Noctis Lucis Caelum, to the sequel's rosters. Bandai Namco Entertainment streamed a new gameplay trailer for Noctis and the video featured his unique fighting style, stage arena, and several bonus outfits in the game.

Noctis is the third guest character to join the popular Japanese arcade-fighting game joining the likes of Akuma from "Street Fighter" and Geese Howard from "King of Fighters." Bandai Namco Entertainment is also preparing for the upcoming "Tekken 7" World Tour 2018 and the event will start on March 16.

Noctis joins the roster next week

Bandai Namco Entertainment first announced Noctis during last year's "Tekken 7" World Tour and his inclusion to the roster was due to the popularity of "Final Fantasy XV." The latter's fighting style is similar to his "FFXV" move set as he can summon different weapons using the power of the Lucis Kings.

Noctis can use his "Warp" ability to teleport and sneak around his opponents for a counter-attack. He can use Magitek magic such as fire, ice, or lightning. He can also use his "Ultima" attack as his signature "Rage Art" finisher. Aside from Noctis being added to the roster, the Japanese video game publisher also included Hammerhead gas station as a new fighting stage.

Video game fans will see other "FFXV" characters on the background such as Prompto, Gladiolus, Ignis, Cindy, and Cid.

Noctis will also have five alternate costumes on the game and they are the Casual outfit, Royal Raiment, Choco-Mog Style, Fighting King's Raiment, and the Kingly Raiment. The popular "FFXV" hero will be available on March 20 for the consoles and PC platform.

However, Noctis will not be available in the sequel's Story Mode and the gameplay footages were mainly used for promotional purposes. Video game fans are asking for more guest fighters as game producer Katsuhiro Harada encouraged them to list their favorite characters such as Kazuma Kiryu, Dante, Chun-Li, Kyo Kusanagi, and more.
