'Josie Rizal' is first Filipino Tekken character (OT)
« on: March 31, 2015, 05:42:08 PM »

The character is named “Josie Rizal,” a play on the name of the country’s national hero. She is a kick boxer who is also adept with the Eskrima technique.

In the trailer released on Sunday, Josie is seen wearing a gold dress and a blue skirt with gladiator sandals. She is also accessorized with gold earrings, bracelets and a red headband. She also spoke in English.

In a report by EventHubs.com, Josie’s character design was made by Mari Shimazaki, who is known for coming up with the character design for Tekken 7’s Kazumi Mishima.
Mad Catz’s Mark “Markman” Julio was also consulted for the character design of Josie. Tekken project head Katsuhiro Harada said that Julio, who has Filipino blood, told him about Filipino culture and “offered advice that shaped many of the character’s traits, including her name,” the report said.

Josie was launched along with two other Tekken 7 characters: Jin Kasama and Devil Jin.

The Filipino kick boxer is yet to have a release date on when she will be launched in the game.
