Katsuhiro Harada, director of the upcoming Tekken 7, posted this design for an Arab fighter and asked for feedback:
To be honest, we did have an idea of an Arab fighter since 2008, but since most of the development team members are Japanese and do not know much about the Middle Eastern culture or clothes, we were not able to fully design it back then.
But in recent years I (Harada) have been visiting places such as Dubai and Saudi Arabia, and many of the development staff members have been learning about Middle Eastern culture and designs.
From there we came up with this character’s outfit design.
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.
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.
