Eddy Gordo Returns in Tekken 7

Bandai Namco has confirmed yet another playable character for Tekken 7.

The powerful Caopeira fighter Eddy Gordo makes his return in the upcoming fighter. Featured above, you can view his introduction trailer.

Here’s a brief synopsis for Eddy, via Bandai:

Brazilian Capoeira combines dance, acrobatics, and music to form a deadly martial art. When practiced by an expert practitioner such as Eddy Gordo, bodies will break, blood will be spilled, and battles will be won.

Eddy Gordo’s connection to the Mishima Zaibatsu began when he pleaded with Jin Kazama to help treat the serious illness afflicting his Capoeira master. In return for the treatment, Eddy would wield his deadly skills at Jin’s command. Unfortunately for Eddy, not even the technology of the Mishima Zaibatsu could save Eddy’s master and he soon swore to take vengeance against the Mishima Zaibatsu led by Kazuya Mishima.

In recent news, Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada confirmed that post-launch, paid DLC for the game will only include “special characters,” meaning classic fighters won’t be put behind a paywall.

Tekken 7 is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on June 2nd.
