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!

Tekken 7 – Arab Character Concept – Impressions

by Rip

Over on the TEKKEN Facebook page, Harada posted up some concept art of a proposed Arab character for Tekken 7. In the post he describes that this is NOT confirmed as a character yet and is only a design at this point. He is looking for feedback on the design so that they can decide how to move forward with the concept. While he is interested in everyone’s feedback, he is particularly interested in feedback from the Middle East TEKKEN communities. So if you guys know anyone in that scene, be sure to forward them along to this post for more information. Check out my imrpressions of the Arab character concept art below:

Tekken 7 – Trailer and Unreal Engine 4 Thoughts

by Rip

With Tekken 7′s reveal trailer at Evolution 2014 there was a lot to take in. There’s the whole storyline with this introduction of Kazumi plus the news of the engine switch to Unreal Engine 4, so I thought I’d put together my thoughts in a couple of videos. Lets not forget that July 25th at Comic-Con we will be receiving more information about Tekken 7 as well! The Comic-Con page mentions that Harada will be joined by a special guest – could it be Ono!? Will they reveal Tekken x Street Fighter at Comic-con? After all, it was Comic-Con where they first unveiled Street Fighter x Tekken, so anythings possible!
