Tekken 7 has a secret Filipina character?

Although the Jollibee character rumored to make it on Tekken 7 isn’t likely to come true, a new character from Bandai Namco Games’s latest fighting game is reported to possibly be a Filipina.


Gamers from Korea with very keen eyes spotted this new character data along with others and leaked them online. One of the readers then pointed out that what she was wearing along with her necklace, seems to be taking its design cues from out national flag. Check out the full costume.


If you’d think about it, it does resemble our Philippine flag in more ways than one. The necklace, in addition to its yellow top and blue skirt with red slit, does make it seem like she’s wearing the national flag vertically.


We’ve reported before that Tekken’s game director and chief producer Katsuhiro Harada has mentioned that he will be considering a Filipino character, and if ever this does push through it won’t be the first time that they will be incorporating our culture into their game.

    A male filipino character that dressed like Manny Pacquiao is I think a better choice with a combination of boxing and filipino martial arts skills.

    It is definitely not the first Filipino related concept incorporated into Tekken.
    Yung Tekken 6 may stage na Pilipinas. May Jeep sa background and kita yung logo ng Quantum (arcade).

    They already made a Filipina/Filipina-inspired character in a fighting game. Remember Talim from Soul Calibur?

    Why the need for “secret”?

    Especially when someone like Talim from the Soul Calibur, also a game by Namco, exists.

    Not gonna raise any hopes until Harada officially announces it.

    Pwede rin kasing galing South America itong character na ito.
