Given what cross-promotion square Enix has done to bring other games into Final Fantasy XV, it’s no surprise that they are lending out some of its elements, too. The hero of last year’s hit RPG, prince Noctis, is added to the roster of Tekken seven sometime in Spring 2018, although it seems you will need to shop for the fighting game’s Season Pass to unlock him.

Given the hours upon hours you spend slashing up enemies in Final Fantasy XV, it is a no-brainer to throw Noctis in Bandai Namco’s brawler. Then again, Final Fantasy heroes (okay, just Cloud) have a history of dropping into fighting games wherever they do not belong. The FFVII protagonist was formally added to Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U back in 2015, half a decade when fans hacked the game’s Wii predecessor to add Cloud.
