Bandai Namco has announced that the Brazilian Capoeira fighter Eddy Gordo will be part of the main roster when Tekken 7 is released later this year on June 2nd. For those unfamiliar with the fighting style, Brazilian Capoeira combines dance, acrobatics, and music to form a deadly martial art. When practiced by an expert practitioner such as Eddy Gordo, bodies will break, blood will be spilled, and battles will be won.
Eddy Gordo’s 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.
