***Update 1 – 2017-04-28 – 14:00 CEST***

It’s been about 12 hours since we published this post, and during that time (when I, Robin Ek TGG was asleep) Katsuhiro Harada has commented on the situation with Roger Jr. being removed from “Tekken 7” due to animal rights activist protests. Well, this is what Harada said:

“Huh? PETA has not said anything. And I said we’ve worries. What are you talking about.”

“I haven’t said anything like PETA. It’a only a story about “who has complaints whatever we do” But even Panda enters TEKKEN”

“Huh? I’ve no worry. Roger&Alex are set as “weapons” so there is no problem. Only I mentioned a condemnation to those who accused that chars”Katsuhiro Harada

In other words, according to Katsuhiro Harada, PETA hasn’t said a word about “Tekken 7” to him (or anyone involved with “Tekken 7”) about Roger Jr. Furthermore, by the looks of what Harada said via Twitter. There “might” be a chance for Roger Jr. in “Tekken 7” after all. As Harada pointed out that even Panda is a part of the “Tekken 7” roster. It’s also worth mentioning that Harda is pretty well known for trolling the games media and the Tekken fans. You know, like that one time when he joked about that Lucky Chloe wouldn’t be in the Western versions of “Tekken 7”, for example (Harada was just joking/trolling about the whole thing).

So there you have it, and “hopefully” this means that we will get the chance to play as Roger Jr. once “Tekken 7” launches for Windows, PS4 and Xbox One in June this summer.

As absurd as it could possibly sound, it’s completely true, Roger Jr. is no longer a part of “Tekken 7” due to animal rights protesters complaining. In an exclusive interview with VG247, Harada explained exactly why Roger Jr didn’t make the cut, and how we could still expect other animal characters to still make it through.

“There was a video of a man’s dog being headlocked by a kangaroo, and he punched it in the face”, Harada says. “It turned into a big problem. People were complaining about him punching a kangaroo. It seems that in the last few years there’s a lot more animal activists – even though they probably wouldn’t play our game they would still hear about that, about a kangaroo in our game being punched, and would complain about it.” Kuma the bear is still in the game, though, because a bear is “obviously stronger than a human being”.

Honestly, this doesn’t sit well with fans for obvious reasons. For one, it doesn’t make sense that Kuma and Panda would stay on the roster with possibly Alex over Roger Jr. A Kangaroo is much stronger than a human, and therefore, shouldn’t have been put in a situation as to cause a scrap with a dog to begin with. Secondly, this is a fictitious character in a video game with extremely unrealistic expectations from fans who love it.

Roger Sr. has been a part of “Tekken” since “Tekken 2”. And, although we didn’t see a return of the character until “Tekken 5” in the form of Roger Jr., then “Tekken Tag Tournament 2”, we still shouldn’t see his absence from the series. So if we receive Alex, or Gon alongside Kuma and Panda, we can definitely call bullshit on this issue that Harada and Namco have brought up. If PETA, or the ASPCA is involved in causing the removal of Roger Jr. it will surely cost serious sales for “Tekken 7” over an unnecessary roster cut after two years.

And with that said, what are your thoughts on this situation concerning Tekken 7 and Roger’s removal? Let us know in the comment section down below!
