Josie Rizal is a new character that will be introduced to the Tekken 7 game as a playable character. Josie is a Philippino girl with short and black hair that always has a red ribbon in it. She has brown eyes and most of the time she is wearing a yellow blouse with long sleeves with a red and blue short skirt. Her look is completed with a golden sun necklace. In fact, all her jewelry is represented by the sun as she is wearing sun earrings and bracelets with the sun.
Her clothes are a reminder of the Philippine flag as she is wearing the colors of the flag: yellow, white, blue and red.
As for the customizations, Josie tends to wear more dresses and clothes that are more appropriate for her age, such as hoodies and denim pants or jeggings. Sometimes is wearing a cowboy hat to complete her look.
Josie Rizal is a playful character, a bright and cheerful girl that is always so energetic. Even if she is so playful and happy, she sometimes starts to cry out of the blue as she remembers sad parts of her past.
Sometimes she is very focused on her work and extremely confident in her powers where she demonstrates her fighting skills, but she can also turn out to be very nervous as she has difficulties to concentrate while fighting other enemies.
One of her most famous hit is the dragon uppercut that can have a great impact on the opponents. Her fighting style is Eskrima Kickboxing. This style is focused around weapon based combat with all sorts of knives and sticks, but in this case, Josie does not use any weapon and it mostly focuses on defensive techniques. This style of fighting is centered around the reaction to the opponents’ attack and it’s most of the time just a defensive mechanism rather than an offensive one.
Josie Rizal was named after a Filipino hero, Jose Rizal and Rizal is the Spanish word for “the green of young growth”. She is also the first fighter originated from the Philippines.
In the new game Tekken 7 we will discover her story and why she is so affected by her past. The creators of this game will show her links to other characters and how their life intersected and influenced her future. And another great aspect would be to find out what are her reasons for choosing to fight as she has the looks of a young and gentlewoman and not of a fierce fighter. It’s interesting how every female character was designed in a different way and they all show different personalities and now portrayed as fragile characters that need to be protected by males. Even if their looks are sometimes too feminine for a fighting scene, every single character shows strength and power while fighting all sorts and types of opponents no matter the size or gender.
