Tekken 7 is volop in ontwikkeling voor de next-gen consoles en menig fan van de franchise kijkt hier natuurlijk vol verwachting naar uit. Op de Facebook-pagina van Tekken vraagt men wat de fans vinden van een nieuw personage, een Arabier.

Op basis van feedback gaat het ontwikkelteam beslissen wat ze uiteindelijk gaan doen met de personage, of die uiteindelijk in de game zit is dus nog niet bekend. Zo wil men zeker ervan zijn dat het personage niet racistisch is.

“To be honest, we did have an idea of an Arab fighter since 2008, but since most of the development team members are Japanese and do not know much about the Middle Eastern culture or clothes, we were not able to fully design it back then,” he said. “But in recent years I (Harada) have been visiting places such as Dubai and Saudi Arabia, and many of the development staff members have been learning about Middle Eastern culture and designs.

“If the Tekken fan community, especially those in the Middle Eastern area, end up liking this character, I would like to feature this character in the game. On the other hand, if this character is not received well by the Middle Eastern Tekken fan community members, there is a possibility that the character will be considerably changed or letting go of the idea of featuring this character in the game.
