They should have stopped it at "I can't believe I won". The sobbing was so out of place and unnecessary.

I dont get how she's badass. She's just ass. Anime schoolgirl face, bunny ears ribbon, shiny loose top and miniskirt, recycled moveset that looks more like tricking than real fighting, awkward voice acting and quotes...nope, not receiving any badass vibes.

Is that costume a filipino traditional dres or something?

I think she looks cool. The crying part is kind of cliche but whatever. Although a short vid isn't the best way to jump to conclusions, i think it looks like she plays closer to Bruce in TTT1 which would make me pretty pleased since that was my favourite incarnation of him (he is still fun in TTT2 but he feels weird with his swaying and wall carry options in my opinion). Her moves seem to have some good impact behind them. I looked up Filipino martial arts and Yaw-Yan is a form of kickboxing so I guess that is what she is specifically representing outside of the Eskrima listed on her character profile. Nice to have a new character with an actual fighting style for once!

Gameplay wise, a little disappointed that she has a d/f+2 and a hopkick but that seems to just be the accepted norm for new included characters in the series.

Yaw Yan used to be more kickboxing, now it is more grappling and Brazilian Judo/ Brazilian Jujitsu. It changes a lot.


Last night i watched Harada's youtube vid together with those LC and Lili cosplayers, He mentioned something about Josie Rizal, I heard the words Escrima, Kickboxing and Pacquiao from him. So that means Josie Rizal uses Escrima, Manny Pacquiao style boxing and kickboxing, i think it is Muay Thai kickboxing with all the Bruce Irving moves she is getting.

Personally i think the name is stupid, i mean, how many Tekken characters are named after their national heroes? They might as well have named her Jolly Bee De La Cruz.

Jolly Bee De La Cruz sounds a lot better. I remember reading somewhere that harada likes jollibee and wanted to put in a reference...or something to that effect.

Bob is fat and american. Wonder why they didnt name him Bob McDonald.

Her moves also have awkward animation. I think they stopped hiring motion capture actors for in game fighting moves since TT2 and just computer generated all the new moves... terribly.

Personally I'm hoping her moveset is more Eskrima than kickboxing(she's listed as both.)

My issue is that with limited spots, and a kickboxer already in(albeit an American one), if you're not going to bring back an old classic(Bruce), then why not use more of a style that is rarely used in fighters? Again haven't seen her whole moveset so I just more hope she's not a Bruce clone.

Now if her kickboxing is more Yaw Yan(the Filipino style that is made and developed for smaller people to fight bigger, stronger ones-I THINK this might be the case and they just threw a couple of Bruce's moves on her), that could actually look good(Bruce's moves copied pound for pound IMO, wouldn't look as good on her I think), but I'd still prefer more Eskrima based(which someone pointed out might be a thing, since some of her swaying/defensive stuff looks a bit more Eskrima based.)

That being said she doesn't really register too hard with me. Not really my style to play but I don't really hate her or anything. She'll be one of the 34-36 or so characters at the end of the day, no biggie. (That winpose though, ngh. Someone said Pyrrha 2.0 and I shuddered at the notion.)

I admit, I was waiting for the like massive tears to fly in. I mean all of the ingredients were there; Voice kinda iffy, the win pose, the cheesy dialogue even with a hint of anime with the RA,(which people like to complain a lot about), the fact she had even more recycled assets like Kilik clone's super and looks quite decently like Talim, the skimpy clothing. FIghting style that, JUST from the video, doesn't look like it's anything special at all(you don't see enough of it to get a good idea either way of how accurate to Eskrima she'll be-and people like to complain about accuracy, etc...) None of this really bothers me but it's all stuff that I'm long used to causing shitstorms.

...she's not getting complained about AS much as I thought for some reason. I mean I can't say why or anything since the fanbase seems a bit like random onto what it complains about but there you go. I mean I was expecting all the tears.

I'm not *disappointed* in the fanbase here, more just confused after everything. (I Mean people complained Claudio looked mildly like Maxi, and she looks a lot like Talim, etc.) It's sorta like you tape up your windows for the hurricane that you get used to and just a thunderstorm blows in.

By the way, you might want to add her official video to the original post.

No lol I don't think so... People thought that Jin/DVJ won't be in the game... But he was. So let's not "Jump the gun" like Harada-San says

But I do like Josie Rizal

she has awful large cans for a boxer.....

Well, her fighting style looks pretty cool, her appearance just doesn't match it. Thank god we still have Nina and Kazumi to be the female characters who are badass in their own right, and dont' have these retarded voice overs and costumes.
