Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada revealed a new character for the upcoming installment of the game during the Tokyo Game Show 2014. Enter Catalina, who is described as a “sassy-mouthed talker” of Latin American origins. According to Harada, she “will be vocal” in Tekken 7. Pictured above is the character’s concept art in full.
No gameplay footage has been revealed for us to see her in action yet, but according to IGN, she utilizes a Savate fighting style, which is a form of French boxing and kickboxing. We’re also told that she’s going to be beginner-friendly.
Catalina will be playable at the location tests recently announced by Namco Bandai. An unannounced character will also be joining her with an emphasis on a new 2D fighting game mechanic.
