Tekken 7 – New Latin American Female Character Revealed!

by Rip

Just revealed from TGS on the MadCatz stream, a new Latin American female character has been added to the roster for Tekken 7! This character will also be available during the location test taking place in Japan from October 3rd to October 5th. Harada has said that the character will be beginner friendly. What does that means exactly? We will have to wait and see. Also, they mentioned that she will have a sassy attitude, and talk a lot while fighting! Additionally, a SECOND new character will also be available at the location test and has characteristics of a 2D fighter!

Also mentioned is that they were doing lag tests between Seoul, South Korea and Japan – possibly for arcades? Very interesting if true!

Yeah, Ray I was thinking the same thing, especially after they mentioned 2D mechanics. Something about her really reminds me of Eliza

Watch the other character be Kazumi with a Mishima/Kazama hybrid style. I mean she's a big deal in the trailer. No real reason to believe she isn't a main character.

I wonder, where will she be coming from? Costa Rica? Catalina is a very cute name :). She remind me of Nina.

I wonder what kind of fighting style she would have? Before, there will be new Arabian characters... Wonder how many characters added by Harada? And decide the new fighting style is not that easy...

Long as Tekken have artificial difficult in terms of movement, then you don't have to worry about beginners competing. Because Tekken movement is what a lot of new players complain about. Which i kinda agree with. But it's a staple in the franchise, so altering wave dash movement wouldnt go over well.

I think the direction they are going, they will keep the game similar to what we are used to, but also create easier characters for new players. Those new players won't be able to keep up with older players anyway. I'm more concerned about old players using the new 'beginner' characters. Thats going to be the tough balance for these characters.

Im not really happy about the fact, that tekken will add "beginner friendly" characters.. since a lot of people invest so much time to master difficult chars, its very annoying that people who play those easy characters, can easily be on the same level as the people who played for years.. i liked tekken especially because it is so difficult but i dont know if i'm that excited for tekken 7 since harada confirmed that he will make this game much easier for beginners etc. (((

Potential name is Catalina? Or maybe it was Katarina? Something like that? If its latin american, I think Catalina fits better
