As I’m sure many of you are aware, the first day of Tekken 7 location testing is just about to get underway in Japan. Players will be able to try out the upcoming title, its new gameplay mechanics, and the arcade netplay system over the course of the weekend, and various details are starting to emerge from those in attendance.
Upon entering the event, fans are being immediately treated with a preview of a brand new character named Claudio. While information on his playstyle has yet to emerge, you can check out a glimpse of his design below.
