Filipino Tekken Fighter Josie is ready to fight!
Some time ago, the Tekken Team introduced the latest totally new addition to the Tekken 7 roster, Filipino Kickboxer Josie Rizal. Whether it was planned or not, this virtual character’s debut certainly was felt throughout the world of social media and the internet, trending worldwide soon after she was introduced thanks to the Filipinos’ penchant for supporting anything and everything Pinoy with their texts and emails.
As well-known as Josie has become, her introduction hasn’t come without some controversy, with objections to the character’s name (inspired by the Philippines’ national hero, Jose Rizal) being voiced by some supposed representatives of government or some sort of authority. A supposed TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) against Josie’s release by an agency of the Philippine Government turned out to be a hoax or April’s Fool Joke, and the supposed agency involved i the fiasco has officially denied giving any such ruling or opinion on the matter.
Bottom-line, Josie Rizal is coming to Tekken 7, and now there’s a release date- April 21. She should be then playable in Japanese arcades, so we are certainly stoked to see just how well she plays.
