“With Unreal Engine 4, we can rapidly achieve the visual quality expected on next-gen platforms and go beyond it. Not only is Unreal Engine 4 powerful and easy to use, but it allows us to easily bring Tekken 7 to any platform we desire.”
During a special presentation at Mad Catz’ booth, Bandai Namco’s Katsuhiro Harada had some choice Tekken 7 information to share with the crowd in attendance at Tokyo Game Show 2014 and watching from home.
Many of these details had to do with a new playable character, pictured below. Harada mentioned that she will be a very outspoken, sassy character that’s suited best for beginners. The developers plan to have her ready for the location tests next month.
According to Avoiding the Puddle, this fighter is named Catalina and hails from somewhere in Central or South America. She utilizes the savate fighting style, a French martial art.
Unfortunately, no gameplay footage was shown off, but Harada did mention that they are working on two new features that we should see a bit of at the upcoming location tests.
It's just a few tweets, people from neogaf bitched at the creator or director or whatever because they didn't like the character so he said she'll stay japan exclusive and we'll get a muscle bound skinhead instead. And that he wasn't joking.
Granted he might be joking anyway but I'm surprised, I didn't think I could hate neogaf more than I already did.
