Rumor: Next Tekken 7 Season 4 character to be released March 2021, potentially has connection to Mishima Zaibatsu logo

Though Tekken 7 Season 4's roster will only release two additional characters in total to the roster, only Kunimitsu has been revealed and released so far. We will very likely receive information about Tekken 7's 51st character during the Japan Fighting Game Publisher Roundtable stream that is to take place on February 20, 2021 at 9:00 p.m. PST / February 21, 2021 at 12:00 a.m. EST.

However, a verified editor from Ars Technica reported on ResetEra that Tekken's public relations group is declaring that a new fighter will be added to Tekken 7 sometime in March. The same email notes that a hoodie containing the Mishima Zaibatsu logo and a "special item" with no further description somehow teases the next character.

"There's no embargo on this, and this kind of pre-release hype trickle isn't Ars Technica's domain, so I'm offering to you, ERA," said samred on ResetEra. "Tekken's PR group has confirmed to various members of the press that 'in March, a new character will join the fight in TEKKEN 7 as the latest DLC character entering The King of Iron Fist Tournament.'"

"The same email includes an offer of 'a hoodie and a special item that teases the next character joining the TEKKEN 7 line-up of playable characters.' The hoodie has the Mishima Zaibatsu logo on its front. The 'special item' is unclear."

The Ars Technica editor reasonably speculates that this might be a hint at Jinpachi Mishima, Heihachi Mishima's father. Though Jinpachi is mentioned in Tekken 7, Jinpachi's last canonical appearance was in Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection where he was killed by Jin Kazama, Jinpachi's great-grandson.

Assuming this rumor to be true, we'll very likely learn of the next challenger's identity, as well as their connection to the hoodie with the Mishima Zaibatsu logo and the mysterious "special item" before too long.
