Bandai Namco has released a new trailer revealing android fighter Jack as the newest member of the character roster.

Various iterations of Jack have been playable in Tekken over the years, each sporting a different look. His latest incarnation features a pink mohawk and neon lights in the seams of his body panelling.

As always, Jack looks like he packs a big punch. In the trailer he can be seen making up for his relatively slow movements with sweeping punches and crushing kicks that deal big damage to Alisa.

Watch the trailer below.

Tekken 7 was announced last year. The game, which is powered by Epic's Unreal Engine 4, is already in Japanese arcades, but Bandai Namco has yet to announce when it will ship on consoles and in other territories.

During previous location tests, some fundamental changes to the formula were discovered in Tekken 7. Two new gameplay wrinkles have been introduced in the form of Rage Arts and Power Crush.

With Rage Arts, players can input specific commands, which are believed to be specific to fighters, to initiate a Rage State. In this state attack damage is increased and special moves become accessible.

Power Crush relates to a set of special moves that can't be interrupted by attacks, but still leave you vulnerable to taking damage. You can use them as much as you want, but at the risk of chipping away at your health bar.
