Katsuhiro Harada Talked About the Geese Tekken 7 Crossover

On social media, Tekken 8 Producer Katsuhiro Harada discussed people’s crossover character suggestions and, during so, brought up the Tekken 7 DLC fighter Geese Howard from The King of Fighters. He went over how Geese wasn’t the only option considered, as well as noted the reaction from people when he was announced.

First, Harada discussed The King of Fighters Tekken 7 crossover character and potential for future ones when responding to someone who suggested Iori Yagami for Tekken 8. He noted that Yagami was also a possible choice. However, he picked Geese to go up against Heihachi Mishima.

Harada followed that up with a response to someone discussing Virtua Fighter’s Jacky Bryant joining Tekken 8. He said if there was a new installment, that would be a character he’d consider. However, in the comment to that he noted how some people had no idea who Geese was when he ended up being added to Tekken 7

All of these responses came up when Harada shared some informal Twitter polls gauging interest in Tekken characters. The first mentioned Anna, Eliza, Katarina, and Julia/Michelle, with the Julia/Michelle option winning. The second included Josie, Kazumi, Kunimitsu, and Lucky Chloe, with Lucky Chloe winning that vote.

Tekken 8 is available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC, and Lidia is the next DLC character. Tekken 7 is on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
