Namco Bandai recently conducted a poll for a new character in Tekken Revolution. At a Tekken panel at Comic-Con today, they revealed that the Female Vampire character has won the vote. Here’s her description:

 

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 BR, 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 (she) seems to bring good fortune.
