The newest character that was revealed for Tekken 7 is set to be unlocked in arcades (Japanese ones at least, Korea seems to be delayed.) on April 21st from the recent update on the Tekken Official website. For those who don't know, Josie Rizal is a fighter hailing from the Phillipines with the Eskrima and basic kick boxing fighting style. She was designed by Mari Shimazaki who you may remember from Bayonetta and the name was suggested by MarkMan as a homage to José Rizal. You can look forward to seeing her in matches and hopefully a complete movelist/combo rundown in Practice mode next Tuesday. (April 21, 2015)
