The King of Fighters ALLSTAR Recruits Tekken 7 Characters

Two major fighting game franchises are colliding for the first time as Netmarble announced the newest King of Fighters mobile installment, entitled The King of Fighters ALLSTAR, will feature numerous characters from Bandai Namco's Tekken 7. While the Japanese release of ALLSTAR featured crossovers with lesser-known franchises, this is the first time both 1990s franchises have come face-to-face.

From Nov. 26-Dec. 17, players can collect famous Tekken characters Heihachi Mishima, Jin Kazama, Kazuya Mishima, Armor King, Ling Xiaoyu and Paul Phoenix. There are also Tekken-themed modes of some of ALLSTAR's gameplay, like Super Mission and Prize Wheel.

An SNK property, the first King of Fighters game was released in 1994 and, like many of its contemporaries, depicts a tournament of fighters from all around the world. ALLSTAR, which was released in 2018 and is free to the public, features characters from every game in the franchise's 25-year run. Tekken, meanwhile, was also first released in 1994, and its characters have previously crossed over with other fighting games like Street Fighter and Soulcalibur.

The King of Fighters ALLSTAR is available on Google Play and the App Store.
