After over six months of waiting since the last big content drop for Tekken 7, the time is almost here to see the future of the King of Iron Fist tournaments.

Bandai Namco released a brand new trailer for the Season Pass 4 for Tekken 7 which revealed all of the current content coming to the DLC like Kunimistu, online improvements, balance overhaul and more which will officially launch in just a few days on November 10 โ€” though we can play some parts a bit earlier.

The first major part of the video consists of a brand new gameplay trailer for Kunimitsu which goes much further into her moveset and combos this time around plus some of the cool additional costumes that'll come with the character.

Kunimistu's additional DLC looks fit very well in Tekken's cyber-tech world with the Urban Ninja wearing a big, fancy coat with a fox-eared hood that resembles her standard mask which is replaced with a gas mask.

What's perhaps just as exciting for players in S4 is the upgraded online play which is described in the trailer as response improvement for the game's rollback netcode along with adding a new Wi-Fi indicator to matches.

No public beta was ran for the netcode improvements, so fans don't entirely know what to expect going into the new season though those who've gotten hands-on with the new version only had nice things to say about it.

The new DLC stage coming with Kunimitsu, Vermilion Gates, appears to have both day and night versions with striking lighting and visuals in each.

On top of what the trailer describes as a 'major balance overhaul,' every character in the game will also be receiving brand new moves to add to their arsenals with a handful shown off in the trailer.

Season 4 will also come packing a new main menu screen and updated health gauges that appear to start green and move towards orange as it goes down.

The way we interact with online will also be changing a bit with the new season with the developers adding the Tekken Prowess feature to the game showcasing stats and skills along with the new Tekken God Omega rank.

Those who purchase the full Season Pass 4 will also receive a Pac-Man 40th Anniversary collaboration DLC set that'll come with t-shirts, plushies, panels and other accessories plus an awesome limited-time only version of the arena stage.

Tekken Director Katsuhiro Harada has also revealed that while the DLC itself will be available starting Nov. 10, the patch to bring the game to Version 4.00 is scheduled to release sometime on Nov. 9 โ€” meaning everyone can check out the updated netcode and balance changes on Monday.

No pricing info has been revealed for Season Pass 4, but it should be the cheapest one yet considering there's only two characters included with it โ€” the second of which doesn't arrive until Spring 2021.
