During the Nico Nico Chokaigi stream earlier today, Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada announced a new character for Tekken 7.
The behemoth Gigas looks something out of a lab experiment, with tubes bolted to his body and reddened unnatural skin. A popular speculation is that Gigas was once human but is now a walking colossal due to experimentation. This is supported by the fact that his nationality has been listed as “Data Deleted.”
Gigas will be released for Tekken 7 in the Japanese arcades on April 28.

Tekken 7 is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and is currently only available in Japanese arcades.

It’s said to be in development for the PlayStation 4, and Harada has teased that it could come to the PC.
