The design of a Tekken 7 character has drawn the ire of the Filipino government.
Filipino site GMA News is reporting that the country's National Commission for Culture and the Arts has criticised the game’s Filipino character, Josie Rizal, for not being properly representative of the country’s inhabitants.
The exact issue the government has with Josie isn’t outlined, but a representative said the commission may look for ways to “correct” her design.
"It's hard for us to prevent other countries from making characters like this because Philippines is very popular around the world," said the commission’s Dr. Leodenito Cañete.
Josie Rizal is named after one of the country's most important heroes (Filipino nationalist José Rizal), and wears the red, blue, yellow, and white of the country's flag.

According to a podcast featuring Liam Robertson, the editor of Unseen64, a site that documents unreleased games, development on ZombiU 2 began in February 2013 but was soon discontinued.
Robertson said he'd seen one screenshot of the game. Ubisoft was keen to add cooperative survival horror gameplay and was "very adamant" about doing it "properly", said Robertson.

When it comes to Xbox One and gaming on Windows 10, Microsoft is more interested in fostering a happy community of players than it is with finances, says Fable Legends game director David Eckelberry.
Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Eckelberry said the recent decision to make Fable Legends a free-to-play game was about innovation rather than economics.
"It's a model that is a weapon, in some sense. So a weapon can be used for good and a weapon can be used for evil. We wanted to be sure that the world knew that we weren't doing this for the reasons of a business model. Nobody came to Lionhead studios and said 'we want you to make a free-to-play game', they said 'make a new Fable game.' And we said 'OK, let's experiment, let's be innovative.'"
