Meet Catalina, the newest character in Tekken's lineup

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Katsuhiro Harada, the longtime producer of the Tekken series, revealed a new character for Tekken 7 during a live-streamed event from Tokyo Game Show.

Her name is Catalina, and she's described as a "sassy-mouthed talker" of Latin American ancestry. Harada said she "will be vocal in game."

Here's an uncropped look at her concept art.

No official gameplay footage was shown in the stream, viewable here (the 11:57 mark is where Catalina is announced.) She will join another unannounced character at location tests in October. In August, Harada posted on Facebook some concept art of a new Arab character.

Tekken 7, the first numbered new release in the fighting series since 2007, was announced at EVO 2014. At Comic-Con 2014, Harada said the game will feature "a very detailed background story," that concludes the Mishima clan saga.
