Eddy Gordo is BACK in Tekken 7! Capos lovers, get ready for the next battle.
In order to save the life of his Capoeira master, who had fallen sick with a serious illness, Eddy pleaded with Jin Kazama, head of the Mishima Zaibatsu at the time, for help with treatment. In return, Eddy pledged his service to Jin and became a member of the Tekken Force.
However, even the medical technology of the Mishima Zaibatsu failed to save Eddy’s master, and he passed away soon after.
Sometime later when the battle between G Corporation and the Mishima Zaibatsu intensified worldwide, Eddy learned that it was Kazuya Mishima in control of the Mishima Zaibatsu, and set out to destroy him to avenge his father, as he had sworn long ago.
