Tekken 7 Arcade Introduction Trailer
The official tekkenchannel dropped a Tekken 7 introduction video for arcades. It's basically an informational video showcasing the new game's look, characters, mechanics, etc. in Japanese. Here's the link:
This video mentions the full names of the two new characters: New Star's Exorcist Claudio Serafino クラウディオ• and Sexy Bad Girl Catarina Alves カタリナ•アルヴｪス.. I have basic-midlevel Japanese and I feel my translation seems about right. I'm not 100% of the "new star" title but it makes sense to me considering as the concept is very reminiscent of the Quincy clan in the Bleach anime.
Harada says there are still more new characters to be announced. Kazumi has yet to be confirmed playable but she's been in the backgrounds for a while now. There is also the potential Arab character and he's been mentioned by Harada on his twitter suggesting they're still working on him.
Link to tweet.
Around 2 minutes into the video, I jumped for joy when I saw a familiar name pop out on screen. YOSHI! Turns out it's actually just a player name lol. He has yet to be confirmed but I'm very hopeful he's in the roster. I'm guessing they probably haven't finished his new look yet which I can't wait to see.
As of now, Tekken 7 is confirmed to be released in Japanese Arcades around February 2015.
