Tekken 7, to come out on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2, 2017 is getting another spectacular fighter added to the roster. This time it’s Eddy Gordo, the badass Brazilian that, according to the press release, “combines dance, acrobatics, and music to form a deadly martial art.” Not that dancing about the battlefield is all he does, you can be assured that “when practiced by an expert practitioner such as Eddy Gordo, bodies will break, blood will be spilled, and battles will be won.”
The plot nonetheless thickens, as Gordo’s characters adds to the turmoil and drama of Tekken 7‘s main story. Revenge drives Gordo’s motivations, as his “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.”
With each punch, kick, and finishing move, revenge will taste all the sweeter for Gordo as he dances through his enemies. With the expertise taught to him by his master, he can’t possibly go wrong.
