Capcom looked to redeem itself and wow the crowd in this year's PlayStation Experience (PSX) at the Anaheim Convention Center with two major reveals: First, a much-awaited character is finally making his return in Street Fighter V, and second, a new installment to the Marvel vs. Capcom series is going to be released next year!
Tekken Project director Katsuhiro Harada had just announced at the recently ended Tekken 7 King of Iron Fist Tournament 2015 in Tokyo that an update to the arcade game is currently in development, called Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. And the most exciting part of that announcement is the launch of the trailer that reveals a new character: the Supreme Master of the Assassin's Fist himself, Gouki from Street Fighter!
Tekken 7's story trailer from last year's San Diego Comic Con shows a scene several decades before the current timeline, where Kazumi Mishima was visited by a mystery character. She told the shadowy figure that her husband Heihachi would eventually realize that their son Kazuya had inherited her Devil Gene, and she asked him to kill Heihachi should she fail and die trying to stop him, or else, who knows what destruction he will cause to the world.
The trailer after the break finally reveals the mystery man to be Gouki all this time, who says he will repay his debt to Kazumi when the time comes. His involvement in the Mishima Saga appears to be canon, and this marks the first time ever in fighting game history that a guest character played a key role in the host game's main story.
