Breaking news from CNN Philippines is addition of new female Pinoy character Josie to the Tekken 7!
After much from Lucky Chloe it is great to see more female characters. Though I must say her head is a little small compared to the rest of her body or is it just me?! Designed by Bayonetta’s Mari Shimazaki. Harada even revealed some trivia on her character:
- Her name is inspired by the Philippines’ national hero: Jose Rizal.
- Her fighting style is a mix of eskrima and kickboxing.
- The initial feedback about her has been largely positive. Her name was even trending on Twitter.
- She has a sad background. She’s “a crybaby, but strong.” That’s why she cries of joy when she wins.
