Last summer Namco Bandai surprised fans by announcing The Walking Dead’s Negan was coming to Tekken 7, and now we finally know when we can get our hands on Lucille. Negan, and classic Tekken character Julia Chang, will be released next week. Check out a fresh trailer for Negan and Julia, as well as some quick character descriptions, below.

After retiring as the masked fighter Jaycee, Julia concentrated fully on expanding her reforestation efforts around the globe, far from the fighting scene. But her project quickly needed money. Finding it difficult to secure backers, Julia was forced to return to the fight far sooner than she had wanted. Seeking one final fight, she made it her mission to beat Kazuya Mishima. Doing so, she theorized, would gain the global attention, and subsequent funding, that her project required.

- Fighting Style: N/A
The Walking Dead’s Negan, the charismatic leader of the Saviors, brought other communities together under his thumb with the motto “people are a resource.” One day, Negan received reports that an unknown group had taken out several of his men. Per his standard policy, he enacted a plan to capture and make an example of them. The survivors fell into Negan's carefully laid trap, but, just as he was choosing his victim to serve as an example, the group put up an intense fight and escaped. Taking his barbed-wire bat Lucille - named after his beloved wife - into his hand, he set out to take care of these foolish ingrates who would challenge his authority.
Negan and Julia Chang are part of Tekken 7’s second season of content – add-on fighters Anna Williams, Lei Wulong, Armor King, and Craig Marduk have already been released. Tekken 7: Season 2 will set you back $30.
Tekken 7 is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. Negan and Julia Chang drop on February 28.
