To all game-lovin' brothers and sisters out there, TEKKEN 7 launched a new character in the person of a Filipina named Josie Rizal -- named from the country's national hero, Jose Rizal.

Josie Rizal was introduced as a Tekken character in Japan on February 18, and in the US on March 18.

On Sunday, Bandai Namco Games held a special event focused entirely on Josie Rizal, alongside two returning fighters, Jin Kazama and Devil Jin.

According to gaming website Shoryuken, these characters were first revealed last week when their models were discovered in the game’s data. Jin Kazama is already present as a hidden sub-boss.

The character Josie Rizal is of Filipino descent, created by Mark "MarkMan" Julio of gaming manufacturer Mad Catz. Mark Julio is reportedly of Filipino ancestry.
