Last year, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada said Negan would be "too weak" to be a Tekken 7 character, even with his trademark baseball bat.
with "Lucille"? Haha nice idea.— Katsuhiro Harada (@Harada_TEKKEN) April 17, 2017
He is a historic villain, but he is too weak as a fighter. IMO

Tekken's Season 1 of DLC included crossover characters such as Fatal Fury's Geese Howard and Final Fantasy XV's Noctis. Pricing for Tekken 7's Season 2 Pass hasn't been confirmed yet, but it's expected that you'll be able to purchase Negan and the other characters individually or in a pack.
In GameSpot's Tekken 7 review, Peter Brown said it was an easy game to recommend "Its diverse roster is packed with a wide range of personalities and fighting styles, bolstered by a raucous attitude that begs to be taken seriously while simultaneously mocking its more peculiar whims in the process," he wrote.
