People have a better chance of seeing what went into bringing the new Tekken 7 DLC fighter Lidia Sobieska to life. Kuro-obi World shared a peek at motion capture sessions for the character. Tatsuya Naka performed her Karate moves. It was also the first time he provided motion capture for a project.

Here’s the video. First, people are able to see Naka perform both in the green-screen space. Then, it shows him in an actual fight. Some Lidia Tekken 7 footage is interspersed, so people can compare Naka’s real-world actions to Lidia’s virtual ones.

Tekken 7 Director Katsuhiro Harada also commented on the use of motion capture in the game after sharing the video. To be specific, he pointed out that the technology wasn’t applied to every character. As an example, he pointed to Mishima family members like Heihachi and Kazuma as folks who didn’t have that technology applied to them.

Here was Harada’s Twitter statement regarding the Mishima family and motion capture.

The Mishima family character doesn’t use motion capture either.

The basics start with handmade and end with handmade.

Captures are similar to storyboards (conte) and reference materials.

Tekken 7 is available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and the Lidia DLC is available now.
