Tekken-chan Is A New Challenger In Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

By Spencer . March 2, 2013 . 11:54pm

Compile Heart has a crossover from Namco Bandai in Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory. While they couldn’t get a company character, they have a Tekken specific guest. Introducing Tekken-chan.




Tekken-chan timidly introduces herself and says she’s not Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada. Tekken-chan appears to be upcoming DLC like other game developer mascot characters CyberConnect2, Falcom, Broccoli, MarvelousAQL, and Mages.

    She must be Jin’s daughter. Maybe…

    • neocatzon

      his daughter can’t be this cute!

      • Zarx

        Can be if it’s from Xiaoyu, the only mystery there is where the amount of boobage came from.

        • MediaMindControl


          • Zarx

            Yo wincest?

          • MediaMindControl

            In some cultures dating a cousin is not taboo. but I guess technically I was merely referring to your question about the boobage. Jin being related to asuka should have similar genetic code, therefore if she has large breasts so could his daughter. that trait just would not be shown by a male or represented appropriately although he could carry that trait and it would be passed on to his daughter.

        • neocatzon

          oh lol, you don’t get it XD.

          • Zarx

            Took me a while lol, happens when you randomly wake up at 4am I guess.

        • Looks more like Heihachi did Tifa Lockheart to somehow make a Moe Heihachi. (Moepachi? Eww.) She even has his hair color as an old man.

      • MrTyrant

        I see what you did there.

  • Zeonsilt

    Give me Soul Calibur-chan ~_~ or Dead or Alive-chan.

    p.s. played yesterday a japanese demo of Neptunia V,will pick it up on release date for sure.

    • YES, a DOA-chan would totally be a plus for me. Not only cuz I’m a fan of DOA but.. well, nevermind, she’d still be a loli wouldn’t she? T.T Well, this is the most I’ve been interested in a Neptunia simply thanks to Green Heart and Iris Heart…. >.< (yes, then i found out that they're just transformations of other lolis XD). I've downloaded the demo but haven't gotten around to playing it yet…

      • Zeonsilt

        The demo is really short. (you can complete it in like 5 minutes,if you rush through level ): )
        p.s. i want to look at gameplay process,that demo was enough for me to decide buying Nep.V ). (mk2 is on it’s way,but it will be another 20 days+,before it’s arrive)

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        This game has no loli’s, OR DO YOU NOT SEE ALL THE BOOBS WALKING AROUND?

        • artemisthemp

          Blanc could be consider a loli

        • DFC =/= loli/moe …they’re determined by age, not cup size.

          But fine, I won’t say loli, I’ll just say they all look too young =P

          • Alexander Marquis Starkey

            It’s the art style, the only one who actually looks like a kid is Gust, and if I recall she’s older than she looks.

  • Randy Marsh

    Well it is no Tales-chan, but I’ll take it. Just add FF-chan or DQ-chan and maybe just maybe this series might finally have my full-on attention.

    • Demeanor

      How would you imagine a Tales-chan??? So many different heroines on so many different stories! I’d go for Mira myself… :P

    • Locklear93

      Given the humor in this series, an “FF-chan” would probably be a cup size reference. :P

    • You forgot SMT-chan. (I see her as Alice in a school uniform with Jack Frost accessories.)

      • Randy Marsh

        How could I forget about the awesomeness Megami Tensei, that was a pretty dumb mistake.

    • I doubt Yuji Horii would be keen on besmirching DQ’s wholesome image.

    • Ricardo Chicalé Lemes

      An “FF-chan” is bad idea… We would have to wait more than six years for her to show up or even worse, at the end of the game we could learn that she was “ported” to the next installment of the Neptunia series…

      • Randy Marsh

        Terrible attempt at being funny…

        • Ricardo Chicalé Lemes

          We fail sometimes…

          • Randy Marsh

            But if at you first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.

  • The pants remind me of Tidus in FFX!

    Welp, if there’s ever a Hyperdimension Hyper Fighter in the future, I want to see Tekken-chan duke it out with other moefied fighter series. Like, Cap-tan.

    • SirTeffy

      But Capcom-chan has already been revealed (Capcom won’t sign off on it, though.) She’s a Resident Evil reference, complete with a red and white umbrella and dual pistols.

  • That stripe panty peak.

  • Himiko

    She’s lovely.

  • Nitraion

    Hmm Tales-chan i wanna see…

    • Arrei

      No one will be safe from her powers of FRIENDSHIP.

      • Nitraion

        XD This series is good for anime wack stories but i wish the gameplay is as good as tales or level-5 game level….
        maybe tales-chan and falcom will clash lol

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    Is this series the best thing to come of this gen?

    • kupomogli


      • MrSirFeatherFang

        I see. I own the first two games, but I haven’t played them yet.

        • wererat42

          Each game has been better than the last, which is more than can be said for other franchises.

        • Mister_Nep

          I’d recommend you skip the first one, and go straight into part 2. The gameplay of the first one was horrible, a chore, and almost unplayable. The second game pretty much retcons the first game’s storyline, and rewrites the backstory. So there’s no reason to ever touch the first game.

          The gameplay of the second is a thousand times better than the first. Everything works better, and it’s just a way more fun and entertaining experience than the first game.

          • DesmaX

            Even better idea, just skip mk2 and go directly to Victory.

            mk2, while it’s definitely a superior game, it stills feels like a poor designed game. Victory fixed every problem that annoyed me in the previous one (From what I played the demo)… I can’t even play mk2 anymore

          • Kitestwinblades

            Thank you T.T That’s gonna save me so much trouble!
            I was wondering the first game had any ties to the second.

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      No, but it’s one of them

      • MrSirFeatherFang

        Reason I ask is, whenever there’s news about this series everyone is going all crazy and happy. Plus this new IP already has 3 installments (and another one coming?). How long will this series continue?

    • amagidyne

      Hyperdimension Neptunia is the worst console game I have ever played. I’m glad some people get some enjoyment out of the series, but I will never understand how.

      • Nitraion

        TBH i have same feeling too but i think their selling point is absurb and wacky story well i pray they really have collaboration with Namdai or CC2 or falcom or whatever developer that they have mascot on in the future to improve gameplaybility because i see this series have a story and cast potential….

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      ??? Ummm do you just miss all the great game we get this gen?

  • Randgriz


  • I already said it but, them pants, her expression and her fighting style. Best combination ever~

  • For the last DLC piece and or character for the game, she looks to be quite the addition. Seeing as how she is the first character based off of an actual game…hopefully this means more game influenced characters in the future ~

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Mmmmm…. Moe…. :3

  • Well this is a massive insult. Why not Yoshimitsu? Not a moe version, I mean the real Yoshimitsu. But you really want cute girls, why not Asuka or Lili? Characters that actually exist within the Tekken universe.

    • Draparde

      because it would ruin the thing they have going on thus far, no company uses actual characters from their games, but a single representation of their company in the form of a girl.
      tekken-chan is the exception as she’s just a representation of Tekken and not Namco bandai as a whole.

      • CirnoTheStrongest

        Bro-chan is basically Puchiko though xD

      • Then that just makes Tekken-chan bland and not cool like Yoshimitsu and his crazy fighting style.

        • Alicemagic

          Thanks for confirming to us what’s cool and what’s not.

    • Luna Kazemaru

      you do understand the point of a parody right?

      • I know what a parody is but this isn’t one of them. Most likely developers won’t take advantage of this and just this character a generic moe or something that is not Tekken like the making the Wii character sweary.

        • DriftSlave

          Because Yoshimitsu isn’t a Mishima….also it makes alittle more sense in why Kuma/Harada tags along with her.

          • Tekken is always about the Mishimas. What about Paul, Nina, King and JACK?

          • Ni

            Prior to Tekken 5 the story had focus on other characters too.. Was in Tekken 5 that these goof endings started to show up in a good amount. Heck I still remember Nina ending in Tekken 4 with her trying to kill Steve! Now they turned her and Ana in this comedic couple (And Heihachi, Law, Paul, Steve etc)

    • Ladius

      This isn’t a crossover game like Project X Zone, the characters are meant to be original because they represent whole franchisesdevelopershardware platforms. Also, creating new heroes is far less problematic in terms of licensing than obtaining the rights to existing ones.

    • lol

    • Otaku can’t fap to Yoshimitsu silly

  • zazza345

    Tekken appeared on the official page almost two weeks ago, though.
    According to the details that appeared on last Dengeki Playstation’s issue, she’s an attacker type with low defense.

  • ragingmerifes

    They should do this more often. Dark Souls is also from Bamco, right?

    • ign0z

      No, they only publish it overseas. It’s by From Software.

  • DriftSlave

    1. she has Mishima’s Electric Wind God Fist
    2. Kuma is voiced by Harada himself
    3. Tekken-chan is completely badass

  • Arc†icNinja21

    Get ready for the next battle! She should appear in the next Tekken game lol

  • Asuna Ilano

    to me, she looks like she’s the representative of square enix because she looks like tifa……with a tidus pants.

    • artemisthemp

      And Cloud Shirt

  • O-M-G!!! Isn’t she just a one of the cutest things you’ve ever seen?! I must get this game.

    I can totally see her getting hit on by a group of creeps, and then kicking their butts.

    @facebook-100001801914249:disqus I didn’t even notice that.

  • Ben Chau

    Oh! Oh! Tekken-chan
    So kawaii…

    • Chris Yuen

      Nice Metal Gear Rising reference.

  • heartless141

    The japanese text next to her is “I-i’m not Harada, My name is Tekken” just in case

    • YouGusta


  • Lilith

    I finally got into this series. I bought Mk2 the other day and it’s enjoyable so far.

  • Oh Tekken-chan, why you so cute =^_^=

  • Demeanor

    Will her ultimate be a Lightning Screw Uppercut? ^ ^ Lovely! If every DLC piece is like this, this game will bleed me dry XD

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Make that one special move and make her turn into Devil and I will be sold.

  • Zonic505

    Soooo will Namco have the right to use this in a future Tekken…no, ANY of their games? Because this is pretty funny/cool. I wanna see what over franchises Compile Heart can turn into a female representative.

    • CirnoTheStrongest

      Yes, just like how Nipponichi-chan was used in Disgaea 4, the companies still own the rights for the characters.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        Well that is a different case as NIS publishes these games, but I don’t see why Namco can’t offer a reference to her in the main series.

      • OverlordZetta

        Don’t forget that CyberConnect basically took C2 as their mascot after her creation for Neptunia V, from what I understand.

  • Linhua

    … OHO~ Did NOT see this coming.

    … I can’t WAIT to see what moves they give her.

    … i’m tellin’ ya… if they EVER go through with a fighting game…

    … well… let’s just say Nisa has herself a tag team partner.

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    I want to see FF-chan.
    She looks like Lightning, and is dark and edgy.

  • CirnoTheStrongest

    Hrm…an [email protected] would be lovely ~ Bandai-Namco make it happen!

  • Cometsu

    Harada cant help but make more Mishimas. Electrics and Hellsweeps will terrorize a new genre

  • Adol Christin

    She’s pretty cute. She does look like Jin’s daughter or…..

  • AnimeRemix

    I wonder when videos will start hitting Youtube showing us what her attacks look like…

    Besides from wondering that, she looks really good!

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Of course she is not Harada. She lack the great sunglasses lol.^_^

    • Ni

      And the Matrix coat

    • SirTeffy

      The joke behind that is she was originally called “Harada Tekken-chan”, but then Harada wanted to voice Kuma, so…

  • DesmaX

    Amazing how they’re still giving support to V, even after announcing the next game.

    … Makes me wonder if the new one is going to be a spin-off

  • Ni

    I can’t stop laughing it’s just this awesome. Now I want Soul a Calibur-chan.
    if she’s a Mishima we are going to deal with a cute girl with a overpowered uncontrollable demon side? Damn…

  • If only it were Snoop Dog-chan, the entire existence of the Neptunia franchise would be vindicated in my eyes.

    • Zarx

      Don’t you mean Snoop Lion-chan?

  • Mavalex

    Dem pants

  • Learii

    i can’t wait to get play her lol she look cute and sexy

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I bet in the ending she throws all her opponents from a cliff

    • Mister_Nep

      That or straps them all to a rocket.

  • zero254

    EWGF confirmed

  • Dietrich

    All the money I have, and will ever have, is now the expressly written property of Compile Heart

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    People say she looks like Jin, I see more Kazuya in her, the gloves, and the pants. Plus I think blue and red is one of Kazuya’s color alts in SFxT though the are switched.

  • Zarx

    Would be pretty sick if she actually has a god fist in the game.

  • HerosLight

    I love characters that uses their fists in RPG games. I always think they are badass.

    I’ll definitely be buying Tekken-chan when shes available, plus, shes very cute.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    hahahahaha dawww Jin

  • TheExile285

    I may have to buy this game

  • ndjn3979

    My interest in this game has just tripled.

  • Kevin Komic O’Shea

    they couldn’t do Namco-Bandai cause they have so many game including Tales series (which should have been chosen) but they went with this cause tekken is more famous.

  • Andrew A

    What happened to Cave-chan? :/

    • Kevin Komic O’Shea

      it in the 80’s so she might still be in diapers

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Oh I’m sure some would want her thrown in if such were the case.

      • Andrew A

        I didn’t know there was a Tekken game in the 80s.

  • Spirit Macardi

    This seems like a really weird choice to have a character based off a single game series rather than a company as a whole.

    Not like a Namco Bandai character would even be hard to envision: She’d be an incredibly dopey but steadfast girl with some amazing abilities, but who rarely uses those abilities due to forgetting they exist x3

    • M’iau M’iaut

      I’d guess if the company is paying for the advertisement, they have some right to choose what’s being advertised. It’s not like most of these new companies being mascotted have tight ties to 80s gaming.

      • Spirit Macardi

        The sad thing is this would confirm what I was getting at in my description of a Namco avatar: Can do some amazing things, but doesn’t in favor of milking the same franchises over and over.

  • Why is she not equipped with a Teddy Kuma? Compile Heart dun goofed this time!

  • HerosLight

    I’m not sure if this is the last DLC for HDN V but there is also Capcom-chan, which is suppose to be a reference to Resident Evil for having the Red and White Umbrella, a Zombie plush, and a gun.


    • Kevin Komic O’Shea

      might be for the next game.

  • Yuriangels

    i want her chain. Now!!!!!

  • so cute :D when does the DLC come out?

  • Just Tim

    I still find it surprising Namco Bandai actually participated in a niche project like this, especially when its core ‘franchises’ not named Tekken are Naruto and Dragon Ball.

    With that said, is the anthropomorphic rep of Tekken fighter in the style of Eddy Gordo?
