Designed by No More Heroes character artist Yusuke Kozaki, Lucky Chloe was revealed yesterday for the upcoming Tekken 7 and apparently the internet went a bit nuts.
Not only were people angry about her design, but the backlash actually pissed of Katsuhiro Harada, chief developer of the Tekken series, so much so that he said he won’t be releasing her in the West. Here’s what he said on Twitter when responding to a thread on NeoGAF critisizing her design- “By the way, Are you ‘Western’ only one bulletin board? Hello small world. I’ll make muscular & skinhead character for you.”
Harada then went on to say “[Lucky Chloe is] East Asia and Europe ‘Exclusive’. and I’ll say again. We’ve more new characters on TK7. She is JUST one of them. and She will be country exclusive (or region exclusive) character. We don’t include her for your region. That’s why I said Calm down and Don’t worry.”
Honestly, I don’t see what the big deal is. I think Lucky Chloe looks pretty hot and I love her costume. Hopefully we see her released in the States when Tekken 7 comes out in 2015. Until then, check out the trailer below to see what all the hubbub is about
