Comic Con 2015 – Tekken 7 Concept Art and Rise of Incarnates

by Rip

I spent this past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, mainly focusing on playing Tekken 7 in the SDTekken room. Usually Namco has a panel to talk a little bit about Tekken and other projects they have going on. This year the focus was on the concept art for Tekken 7 and Rise of Incarnates. They mainly went over the concept art for the new characters in Tekken 7 – Kazumi, Gigas, Shaheen, Lucky Chloe, Claudio, and Josie Rizal. They don’t usually show so much of the concept art but I appreciate the effort and hope they put it in the game as extra content when it finally comes to console.

Whats up guys! In the past month I’ve got to play Tekken 7 at both Final Round, and just this past weekend, at Norcal Regionals. I got to spend a lot of time with the game and got to try out the 4 new characters in Lucky Chloe, Shaheen, Claudio, and Katarina. I’ve put together a video talking about my general feelings about the game in its current state, my thoughts about the characters I’ve used, and my thoughts on the possible console release date of the game. Check it out below!

New Tekken 7 Character Shaheen Officially Revealed

by Rip

If you remember a few months ago, Harada asked fans for feedback on a potential Arab character. They showed some concept art, but didn’t share much else with us about the character. Now, Harada has tweeted out the CGI render for the character, confirming that is a Saudi Arabian character for Tekken 7 whose name is Shaheen. I like how they changed the outfit a bit so his “long belt” is now a sword/dagger. Hopefully its not too long until we get to see some gameplay of his!
