Tekken 7: has expanded their roster once again, revealing two returning characters at GamesCom. Lee Chaolan and his alter ego, Violet, will return to the fray and battle in the King of Iron Fist Tournament.
Here is the official backstory for Lee, per Bandai-Namco:
Lee Chaolan has a long suffering history with the Mishima clan. Heihachi Mishima in his treacherous wisdom adopted Lee when he was a boy to create a rival for his son Kazuya. As Kazuya’s adopted brother, Lee was given the same education and upbringing befitting a son of the Mishima clan. After being expelled from the Mishima Zaibatsu for unknown reasons, Lee founded Violet Systems, a successful tech company specializing in the development of humanoid robotics. Shortly after, the world became embroiled in a conflict between the Mishima Zaibatsu lead by Heihachi and the G Corporation, secretly controlled by Kazuya. As the world cautiously watched the conflict, trying to decide which side would be most beneficial to support, Lee had his own plans as he had nothing but extreme hatred for both Heihachi and Kazuya. Lee chose to exact his revenge on the father and son by covertly supporting Lars Alexandersson, who had turned on the Mishima Zaibatsu, but this was only the beginning of what he had in store for the Mishimas.
Tekken 7 promises to deliver an engaging Story Mode that will take players a long time to beat. The story will delve into the insights of the Mishima clan, but will also feature the stories of the fighters who operate outside the organization.
The example arc features Claudio Serafino, who leads a group of exorcists who banish supernatural entities from our plane of existence. The Mishima clan offered to merge organizations with Claudio’s Archers of Sirius, much to the disliking of the clan. Due to their persistent offerings, Claudio then begins to investigate the dominant conglomerate.
Tekken 7 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and at your local arcade in the first quarter of 2017.
