Full announcement after the jump.

“Tekken Revolution Original Character Poll!!

Hello to all the members of the Tekken fan community out there! We have a very important and quite exciting event to announce.

Tekken Revolution, our new free-to-play title for the PlayStation 3, has proved to be quite popular with the fans so we decided to unique and add some all new characters!

What do we mean by ‘unique new characters’? These are characters that existed previously in our undisclosed story setting materials, but have never made it into the game, or other unique ideas for characters that were proposed but never actually created. None of these characters have ever been playable in the series.

So, there are a few concepts, but it is not yet decided which ones we will actually make.

This event is a fan service project to allow everyone to take part in the process to decide which characters will make it into Tekken Revolution and to come up with something really unique!

Process of Deciding Characters

1. The character concepts will be narrowed down to 3 by conducting a poll on the Facebook Tekken page. Anyone can vote, so make your vote count!

2. The Tekken development team will create character concept sketches for each of the three chosen characters.

3. The character concept will be chosen at the Fighting Panel at San Diego ComiCon on July 19th at 3pm by the audience and Tekken God, Harada-san. The method of selection will be a final vote, and discussion with members of the development team. We hope that the most vocal Tekken fanatics will show up to the panel. It’s your chance to speak your opinions directly to the development team!

4. Development of the chosen character will begin.

5. Release of chosen character in Tekken Revolution – Timing of release is TBD, as the difficulty in development of the character depends on the concept chosen.

6. If the character proves to be popular after release, the chances of additional appearances in the Tekken series will increase!

Please select ONE character from the ten concepts below and vote in the Facebook poll!

Sexy Female Tekken Force Character

A gorgeous and sexy female Tekken Force member, she is loyal to the Mishima Zaibatsu, regardless of who is in charge. As such, she was not a part of the rebellion started by Lars.

The original concept was proposed for Tekken 5, but the clothing was too revealing and the concept was scrapped for fears the rating would increase. The concept surfaced again for Tekken 6 but did not make the final cut.
There were several martial arts mentioned for this character, including Silat, Krav Maga, Savate, Taekkyeon, Systema, and Escrima.

If chosen, the design may need be altered in order to pass the ratings boards.

Syake/Salmon

Originally planned for Tekken 3, punch buttons would cause the Salmon to flop around, and the kick buttons would make it release eggs, which was quite an idea at the time. However, arcades were still popular worldwide, and charging 100 yen per play with such a character was likely to be a problem. That, and the fact that character would be always be the target of Kuma, lead to the concept being scrapped.

If the Tekken 3 arcade board is hacked, you will notice there is placeholder data with the character’s name remaining. This has been discovered by a few hardcore fans in the past. If, for some unforeseen reason, this character is actually chosen, development may be quite difficult.

Female Vampire – A young girl, long imprisoned by the Rochefort family

A young female vampire that has been imprisoned in a wing of the Rochefort Estate, where Lili was raised.
She has a dark personality, but her gothic attire and uncanny beauty are mesmerizing. During development of Tekken 6, she was proposed as a character that used an actual martial art, but also with fireballs, like a 2D fighting game character.

However, aside from Harada, a strange phenomena occurred in which many members got married or gave birth to children around the same time. As a result, not many staff were left at work to complete the character, and she was discarded. The concept was salvaged again during Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion, but the same strange phenomena occurred again and Harada locked the concept away in a safe, wanting to keep it secured within the development team since it seems to bring good fortune.

Shin Kamiya

A classmate of Jin Kazama who appeared in the 3DCG movie Tekken Blood Vengeance.

The fact that his implementation would impact the main story line, that he died in the movie, and that he doesn’t know any martial arts, make him a difficult character to be included in the game.

There were ideas to make him appear in the game as he was before he died, and also to have him be reborn as an immortal type of character.

Tougou

Fellow Tekken Force member and friend of Lars Alexandersson, he joined Lars in the coup against the Mishima Zaibatsu.

He appears in Scenario Campaign in Tekken 6. His fighting style is similar to Lars’, but he also uses the sword on his waist for certain attacks. He could also call in air strikes via his radio. Since he died in the game, he was never implemented as a playable character.

Zombie Bride

A zombie bride to be in a wedding dress.

The idea first came up around Tekken 3 as the first fighting zombie in a game. The idea resurfaced again for Tekken 6, as the sister of Miguel, who was called in an air strike and came back to life.

Since the fighting style for a zombie would be quite difficult to create, the idea was scrapped.

Female Paul

For some inexplicable reason, Paul is transformed into a girl, but the appearance is of a very cute girl. The concept was thrown out in 2 seconds, as it was too off-the-wall.

Giant Praying Matis

During development of Tekken 3, a bug caused the joints of a character to move backwards, and the character model was deformed. It looked like it would be a strong fighter, so there was an idea to actually implement it, but the idea was discarded for lack of development time. Like with Syake/Salmon, the Insect blank data can be found when the Tekken 3 arcade board is hacked. This was also found by some very hardcore fans.

Average, run-of-the-mill Old Man

You average old man, like the one you find in almost any neighborhood. He is not a martial artist, so he is pretty weak.

It was an idea mentioned early in the series, and thrown out the instant it was mentioned.

Ganmi-chan

A teenage female Sumo wrestler who idolizes Ganryu.

The original idea was proposed for Tag 2, but was discarded 5 seconds later in order to focus on increasing the popularity of Ganryu.

A character sketch was completed several years ago, and the result was of a cute character, like you would find in Idol Master. “

“Minfilia – A woman whose gentle eyes and caring demeanor conceal a steely determination. Amidst the chaos that reigns in the wake of the Calamity, Minfilia seeks to find a hero who will help to usher in an era of enduring peace. She is said to harbor a keen interest in preternatural phenomena.

Thancred – A self-professed bard and chaser of dreams, often seen wandering the wilds of Thanalan. Ever the charmer, Thancred never misses an opportunity to woo a lovely lady with verses of adulation. This foppish facade, however, conceals many secrets, not the least of which is his puissant skill with a dagger.

Yda – A young woman with the skills of a pugilist, Yda is always seen with her companion, Papalymo, as they go about their enigmatic business in the verdant Black Shroud. Though appearing carefree and almost flippant at times, the depth of her focus is revealed in battle, where she stands ever ready to protect her comrades.

Papalymo – This Lalafellin youth wields the powers of a thaumaturge, and is highly knowledgeable in the field of aether. Papalymo’s childlike features, typical of his race, bely a biting cynicism that often puts him at odds with the perpetually cheerful Yda, the companion with whom he roves the Black Shroud.

Y’shtola – This beautiful and enigmatic Miqo’te is often seen wandering the lands of La Noscea. Her mastery of the arcane arts and conversance with ancient tongues mark her as far more than a simple traveler.

Louisoix – The wise and wizened former leader of the Circle of Knowing, a fellowship of learned individuals hailing from the far-northern island nation of Sharlayan. In seeking to forestall the calamitous arrival of the Seventh Umbral Era, Louisoix invoked the power of the Twelve, Eorzea’s pantheon of guardian deities. Alas, he disappeared amidst a blinding light following the ritual, and has not been seen or heard from since.

Urianger – An Elezen sage and scholar of prophetic teachings, Urianger was one of the first to draw the attention of Eorzeans to the peril of the Seventh Umbral Era. Formerly of the Circle of Knowing, he is infamous among adventures for the guidance he proffers via his cryptic utterances.

Alphinaud & Alisaie – A self-assured young man and his strong-willed twin sister, recently come to Eorzea in pursuit of an unknown agenda. In spite of their tender years, the two carry themselves with an air of unwavering purpose.

Cid – A brilliant magitek engineer, Cid nan Garlond defected from his native Garlemald and came to Eorzea, where he founded the ironworks of his namesake. He now shares his knowledge with the people of his adoptive homeland, that they might defy the imperial menace he once served.”
