Tekken director Katushiro Harada has revealed a brand new character for Tekken 7, Shaheen, who hails from Saudi Arabia. We weren’t given any other details, but here’s what he looks like:

Back in August, Harada said on Facebook that he had been wanting to introduce an Arab character since 2008, but it was difficult to design one since most of the development team was Japanese. “In recent years I have been visiting places such as Dubai and Saudi Arabia, and many of the development staff members have been learning about Middle Eastern culture and designs,” he said. 

What do you think of Shaheen?
