Fresh on the Tekken scene: Reina’s Taido mastery and Victor’s combat flair
Reina: Kicking It with Style and Attitude
Remember when Tekken 7 was cooking up its story? That’s when Reina first popped up in the devs’ minds.
Now, she’s stepping into the spotlight in Tekken 8‘s ‘The Dark Awakens’ story. Don’t let her stylish looks fool you; she’s got a dark side that shines in her fighting style.
Reina‘s all about that acrobatic Taido action, mixing in some brutal techniques like eye gouges and scratching. Plus, she’s got some Mishima-style moves up her sleeve, making her a powerhouse, especially when she’s backed up against a wall.
To get Reina‘s moves just right, the Tekken team joined forces with Taido champ Mr Tetsuji Nakano. This guy’s a martial arts wizard, and his input made Reina’s moves not just authentic but also seriously cool.
Designing Reina was a big deal, and who better to handle it than Ms Mariko Shimazaki, the brain behind some awesome Tekken 7 characters?
She nailed the brief, blending Reina‘s martial arts badassery with her mysterious vibe. Keep an eye out for the little details in Reina’s design that tell her story.
Victor Chevalier: The Sleek and Deadly Military Maverick
Enter Victor Chevalier, the big shot from the Union of Nations‘ armed forces. This guy’s a legend in the military and a bit of a character in his personal life.
He’s shaking things up in Tekken 8, adding some serious spice to the story. Victor’s fighting style? It’s a wild mix of military tactics, ninja moves, and some smooth spy stuff.
Victor’s look is all about that sleek suit, but don’t be fooled – it’s not just for show.
He’s packing all sorts of weapons, from knives to a flashy Japanese sword. And while he might look like the ultimate gentleman, he’s got a quirky side – he’s super frugal, which adds a fun twist to his character.
