You'll soon be able to play as Katsuhiro Harada in Tekken 7, and it's not a joke this time

The true boss of Tekken

We got some big news on Sunday out of Tokyo Tekken Masters when Bandai Namco announced that they have a handful of new features for Tekken 7 coming down the pike.

While paid in-game frame data quickly became social media's center stage topic, we feel like there's another bit of this bundle that deserves its time in the spotlight: the fact that you'll soon be able to make Bandai Namco General Manager, Katsuhiro Harada, in the game's customization options.

Bandai toyed around with the concept of featuring the charismatic producer back on April Fools' Day, but have decided that it was actually a great idea.

To be clear, this content is labeled as the "Bearded Man Set," and will come with custom options for "Bearded Man" hairstyle, suit, style, and sunglasses. Players will be able to slap any or all of these Harada-esque accessories on their favorite characters and beat people up as the true boss of Tekken.

Unlike the aforementioned controversial frame data, custom Harada parts will come free of charge. All of this content is slated to drop this winter, and we'll be keeping our eyes and ears out for any further details to share.

For now, check out the images of custom Harada via the gallery below and share any and all reactions in the comments below.
