LOL I love her. At least she's human (Tekken 4 is my favourite for this reason, along with some others). Only thing I don't get is why she's so similar to Lili.

Wha-? I'm sorry, but this is the worst design of next year. At least the last time this happened, the character had chainsaw arms, thrusters coning out of her back, and her head exploded in the hands of her opponent (which automatically made her design fantastic). This is just sickly. :c

The artwork is not as cringe-worthy as that thing in video I must say. Maybe because it lacks the annoying (not even cute) voice.

Anyway, I'm more concerned about the fighting style than the character designs, looks like a random mix between Lili and Christie... I prefer having characters in Tekken that represent a certain real-world fighting style (in addition to the more wacky stuff). Why not a muai-tai fighter? I know there's Bruce I guess, but it would be cool to have someone like in Ong-Bak.
Even better would be a pencak silat fighter now that the Raid movies are so popular.

I don't understand this. Tekken isn't doing well and to attract more people. While this will work great for Japan and Korea with all their jpop/idolmaster what have you fetish, This doesn't do it for us. Getting back to the top you need everybody's excitement. The masses will never like this and that's not good.

Really poor decision making and maybe selfish when I heard Harada likes idolmaster bullshit. Where Tekken is going saddens me. I mean the graphics, the mechanics, the music and the vibe it's all there and that is what makes it for me but for every new Tekken the most important part are the new and returning characters. If you don't deliver (like Katarina, Claudio, Lucky Chloe, Alisa, Lars) you won't attract the masses.

This is just my point of view about all this.

No Harada what are you doing!? You were supposed to take out characters like Alisa, not add an even worse one! We already have Xiaoyu as the "cute" character and she's a much better design. Now announce a PC version already!

To be fair most of the characters revealed since Tekken 4 look goofy, Namco is pretty bad at making memorable character designs.

Schoolgirl is pandering, but it's expected, it doesn't look that ridiculous and it's an alternative costume. And you assume people who dislike this character plays Xiaoyu with a school outfit. This new character is built to be pandering, at least Arisa was unique.

Can't wait for Capcom to counter with a moe of their own in Street Fighter V. Tekken and Dead or Alive can't have all the fun!

There's also Elphet in Xrd, but I really like that one.

I don't have a problem with this particular character, but what I'm really disappointed with, is the graphics. While the gameplay trailer is very HQ, the models look like they're using the exact same ones (a little blocky and bulky), and increased the amount of polygons by a little, just that.

Doesn't look like a PS4 game, more like a really pretty PS3 game, which puzzles me. If it's UE4, why isn't it looking better? Maybe it will be cross-gen and the polygonal detail is low so that it can be easily ported to last gen consoles?

Anyway, I'm not digging the visuals. OFC I'll have a blast with it (always have with Tekkens), but seems like a missed opportunity...

Alisa wasn't considered unique back when she was revealed.

There's an entire roster of characters for people to like, I don't see the need to bitch about a new inclusion that doesn't fit one's tastes.

The design of the character is just awful. I mean the pandering doesn't bother me I just think it looks like crap. It just looks too busy with the pigtails and the skirt and the tail and the literal earphones and the jacket just looks awful in-game (it's more tolerable in the concept art though)

Character looks fun. We all know Harada is into the iDOLM@STER life, this was going to happen. We should embrace it. Embrace idol life.

Plus if she's making this many people annoyed, I might just use her for salt

- DOA character
- DOA character
- Soulcalibur character
- concept art of Soulcalibur character
- concept art of final boss who probably won't look like that in-game

Yeah I'd say there's room for improvement

Tekken is fucking ruined. I don't play these games much so my opinion doesn't matter, but I'll tell you anyway - the series is fucking done. It's over. Namco should just trash Tekken because it was never his wacky or off-beat.

Sure, robotic german men, a dinosaur/kangaroo combo and a space ninja are wacky, but there are levels, people, levels. What's next? A fucking panda bear becoming a playable warrior? An old man that farts? A fucking mini-T Rex?

I hope not. That'd mean my super serious limb fighter that I barely play is turning into something too wacky. And that'd mark the end of fighting games.
