Returning character Bob made his first appearance in Tekken 6 and the follow-ups Bloodline Retribution, Tekken 3D Prime and Tekken Tag Tournament 2. He also made an appearance alongside the Street Fighter cast and in Street Fighter X Tekken.
Master Raven, a new character, while having a similar fighting style to Raven, does have a few unique attributes. Raven is not currently confirmed for the Tekken 7 roster and it is unclear as to what the two characters relationship will be.
Tekken 7 on track to be released in early 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
