New Tekken 7 Character Revealed
A brand new Tekken 7 character has been revealed - the new character is of Arab origins and was previously teased in late 2014. Named Shaheen, the new Tekken 7 character will be joining the full character roster upon Tekken 7's release.
Previously, a character named Lucky Chloe was announced for Tekken 7, and the developers received a lot of criticism, and as a result, she was removed from the western version of the game.
At the time, the developers suggested that another character would take the place of Lucky Chloe, but it's unclear whether Shaheen was designed to be the replacement character, or whether he was planned to be released alongside Lucky Chloe.
Either way, it's likely that there may be more characters planned for reveal for Tekken 7 in the near future. Previously, a latin American character named Katarina was announced, and a male counterpart, Claudio was revealed alongside her.
That means there are currently four new characters we know about so far, and previous Tekken characters will also be making a return, including Kazuya, Paul Phoenix, King and Heihachi.
So far, it's looking like the lineup for Tekken 7 may be the best yet - there is certainly a large variety of cultures within the upcoming game, and both seasoned players and newcomers to the series should enjoy the wide variety of characters to choose from.
Tekken 7 will be released exclusively in Japan arcades this February for a short time, before being released to consoles in the East, and then in the West further on in the year.
