Tekken 7’s latest addition to the roster is the Saudi Arabian fighter, Shaheen

The Tekken fighting game series has never had a shortage of diverse characters to pad out its roster – they feature a bear, for Pete’s sake – so it’s no surprise to see that Bandai Namco are working hard to stuff even more characters in, and add a little more diversity as well. As announced on Katsuhiro Harada’s Twitter account, Tekken 7‘s latest addition is going to be Shaheen, a fight hailing from Saudi Arabia. If you’re getting a feeling of deja vu, that’s because Shaheen has been shown off in concept form the last time the Tekken team asked for input from the community.

Besides posting an image of the new fighter, there are precious little detail about Shaheen’s fighting style, though we can’t imagine that sword on his waist is purely ornamental. Tekken 7 isn’t due till February this year, so we probably have a little more of a wait before we see more of Shaheen and his shenanigans.

What do you think of Shaheen? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
