Bandai Namco revealed the first details on Tekken 7’s third season, including the return of martial artist Zafina and the introduction of Leroy Smith, a brand new fighter to the series.

You can watch Zafina, who’s returning from Tekken 6, and Leroy Smith in action in the season three trailer below:

The video gives us an official description for Leroy, which reads as follows:

“50 years ago, a young boy was caught up in a large-scale gang conflict in New York, losing his family and home. Missing for decades, he has finally returned to New York, now as a seasoned master of martial arts – and he’s out for revenge.”

Zafina comes to Tekken 7 this month, and Leroy Smith will debut this Winter.

Two more characters are planned for the third season, releasing in Winter and Spring, and the season pass also includes a new feature and stage, in addition to a number of free updates. Those include new moves for all characters and “expanded practice functionality,” to name a few.

Bandai Namco teased Solid Snake as a character this season – except it was apparently a big ruse.
