Shaheen Joins Tekken 7 Roster

Shaheen, a new fighter from Saudi Arabia, will be joining the roster for Tekken 7, Tekken game director and chief producer Katsuhiro Harada announced on Facebook.
Harada noted the character could be changed or removed from the roster completely based on fan feedback.
“If the Tekken fan community, especially those in the Middle Eastern area, end up liking this character, I would like to feature this character in the game,” Harada said via Facebook. “On the other hand, if this character is not received well by the Middle Eastern Tekken fan community members, there is a possibility that the character will be considerably changed or letting go of the idea of featuring this character in the game.”
Harada also promised more new characters will be revealed soon.
Tekken 7 was announced by Bandai Namco at EVO 2014 in June. No release date has been announced, but the title is expected to release sometime in 2015.
The new character is significant given the lack of representation of Middle Eastern culture in video games. Shaheen has been received well so far. What do you think about Tekken’s new Saudi Arabian character?
