Finally, a Facebook poll was conducted asking players who they would want to see as a future playable character in Tekken Revolution. The winner, a "Female Vampire", beat out other hopefuls such as a sexy female Tekken force character, a large Salmon (yes thats real), Shin Kamiya, a zombie bride and female Paul. She is expected to be added to the game this fall. You can check out her concept design and description below. For info on all of the potential combatants, check out Tekken Revolutions official website. There is also a new trailer showing off all the additions in the update below as well. 

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.
