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:
