Meet Josie Rizal the first Filipino character in Tekken 7.

Filipino Tekken 7 players will have a chance to use a Filipino character in the said game. The character of “Josie Rizal” derived from the Philippines’ national hero “Jose Rizal”. The character’s design was made by Mari Shimazaki, who is known for coming up with the character design Tekken 7’s Kazumi Mishima.

Meanwhile, 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.

Josie Rizal is a kick boxer who is also adept with the Filipino martial art Eskrima. She was launched along with two other Tekken 7 characters: Jin Kasama and Devil Jin.

To be honest, I fail to see Josie Rizal is even from the Philippines. Her movements are like a mix of everything. And the aesthetics of the character are way too far from being a Filipino. Anyway, it’s just in a game and a character, I just wish Pinoy gamers will look forward to playing a fellow Filipino in the newest Tekken 7. However, the kick boxer is yet to have a release date on when she will be launched in the game.
