Meet Shaheen! A brand new character that will be joining the cast of the upcoming Tekken video game Tekken 7. Tekken Game Director and Chief Producer Katsuhiro Hadara has revealed this on his official Twitter account. Hadara revealed the concept art of Middle Eastern character back in August 2014. Here’s what Hadara said on the facebook page:
“If the Tekken fan community, especially those in the Middle Eastern area, end up liking this character, I would like to feature this character in the game,” Harada said in a post to the game’s Facebook page. “On the other hand, if this character is not received well by the Middle Eastern Tekken fan community members, there is a possibility that the character will be considerably changed or letting go of the idea of featuring this character in the game.”
If you ask me, the costume looks mostly like Ezio Auditore from Assassin Creed. The feedback Tekken received on this new character is fairly positive and we hope to see this new character in the upcoming Tekken 7.
