Introducing Rig, a new character that has just been revealed for Team Ninja and Tecmo Koei's upcoming fighter
29/06/2012 - Screen 19

A natural born fighter, he has used his powerful instincts to master the art of taekwondo. He has run the oil rig from a young age, and his colleagues simply call him "Rig." But even he doesn't know his real name or where he comes from. He learned taekwondo on the oil rig, which led him to create his own style, with plenty of moves he came up with himself.
Right, because taekwondo is just the thing to divert you on the lonely days on an oil rig...

As well as the previous render and bio, we've also been treated to an exclusive character trailer and screens that showcase Rig in action on his oil rig against two series regulars:

First up, Christie faces Rig after encountering him in a bar. I guess spending so long on an oil rig has left him a little rusty with his chat-up lines:

It's okay though, they're just play-fighting and end up walking away together; no doubt to practise some other rigging past-times, like needlework or hacky sack:

As well as all this Rig-related goodness, we've also been treated to some screens showcasing the oil rig location, a Bass render and some images showing the game's new photo mode.
