Eddy Gordo will be a playable character in Tekken 7, Bandai Namco announced.
Here’s an overview of the character, via Bandai Namco:
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.
Tekken 7 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2.
