Tekken 7 continues to receive additions to its fighter roster.

Following on from the Lucky Chloe Tekken 7 character reveal a few weeks ago, another new character has been added to the fighting game's roster - Shaheen.

Shaheen is from Saudi Arabia, according to the game's director Katsuhiro Harada in a tweet yesterday.

The image of Shaheen below shows him in full Middle Eastern getup, along with a sword on his hip.

An Arab fighter character was announced in August last year on Facebook, but his inclusion in the game was dependent on feedback from the Middle Eastern gaming community. And it looks like feedback was positive, as he is now being included in the game. The initial concept image of Shaheen from August is below.
