TEKKEN 7 Will Not Include ‘Lucky Chloe’ in U.S. Release

Another Castle

Lucky Chloe, a new character designed for the upcoming fighting game Tekken 7, will not be in the game’s U.S. release after receiving negative online feedback. Game director Katsuhiro Hanada announced on Twitter that the character will be restricted to Asia and Europe in response. Hanada unveiled Lucky Chloe — a female fighter with cat ears, pink paws, a tail, headphones and pigtails — at a recent live stream event.

A thread on NeoGAF criticized the character, finding her design unappealing and stereotypical of J-pop stars’ attire. The thread, and several others, were forwarded to Hanada through Twitter. In response, Hanada revealed Chloe’s Asian/European exclusivity, but was also highly critical of the backlash. In an online statement Hanada explained, “By the way, Are you ‘Western’ only one bulletin board? Hello small world. I’ll make muscular & skinhead character for you.”
