Updated: Tekken 7 gameplay footage; images show new fighter Claudio, character select screen, Katarina

Updated: Gameplay footage of Tekken 7 has just hit YouTube. Check it out after the jump.

The first-ever Tekken 7 location tests are currently being held in Japan, and although the live streams won't be going up until tomorrow, some lucky players are already getting their hands on it.

Luckily, FlyingWonkey of Avoiding The Puddle is currently tweeting out information about Bandai Namco's upcoming fighter.

Tonight we have a special treat, as Wonkey posted photos of Tekken 7's character select screen showing Katarina's official artwork. Additionally, we get to see a screenshot of an actual match, making these images the first real look at the new Tekken title.

Another new fighter has also entered the fray. A male fighter named Claudio can be seen in the official PDF detailing new mechanics that was released earlier today. Below you will find scans of the PDF showing move lists, and the photos showing the character select screen and gameplay.

Harada: Tekken 7 will not have Revolution's fully invincible attacks, Catalina has single-button attack strings geared towards beginners

At Mad Catz's Tokyo Game Show booth last week, we caught up with Tekken series Katsuhiro Harada and Tekken Project team member Michael Murray (who is also a producer on Bandai Namco's 2-on-2 fighting game Rise of Incarnates, which is coming out on Steam later this year) right after they announced Catalina for Tekken 7, to find out a little bit more about the new character.

And since the location tests for Tekken 7 were coming out real soon (this weekend), we wanted to see if we could gleam any hints on what's in store for fans in the new game, too.

While Harada and Murray could not reveal a whole lot about the latest Tekken title, even with the location tests coming up so soon, they did their best to tell us as much as they could reveal for now. So take from this interview what you can, and find out with us here on EventHubs later this week on how Tekken 7 will actually play, once the location test have begun.

New character Catalina announced for Tekken 7, location tests start on October 3rd, netplay implemented, one more new character in loc test build

Update: It was mentioned on-stream that one more brand new character will be featured in the location tests, and was described as "very different" and "more along the lines of something you'd find in a 2D fighter".

It was just announced that a new character will be joining the Tekken 7 franchise, who is a latin american woman called Catalina. It was noted that she will be speaking a lot, and taunting the opponent while fighting, which is unusual in Tekken. She was also noted as being a good character for beginners to use.

It was also said that she would have a new style we've never seen before in Tekken. She will be available, playable, for the location tests that begin on October 3rd.
