We need a character to represent the Tekken franchise on the list. The first characters requested in this thread has been Yoshimitsu and Paul. These two characters could make nice additions, but at the same time, I'm thinking there are better characters to go for.
I haven't made any changes due to this being a list we make together, but personally, I think Jin Kazama should be the one representing his franchise. He is one of the main characters of the series and he has this whole Devil Jin-thing going on which could make a cool addition. You could have him turn into his devil self in his level 3 super, or, what had been even cooler, have him be the Zero Suit character of this game, forcing him to shift between Jin and Devil Jin making him two playable characters in one. As the Devil he could be one of the strongest characters in the game, while as Jin, one of the weaker. It could make a different type of character to play that would need practice to master. Also, in his single player story, you could bring in Heihachi, Kazuya and other Tekken characters (not as playables), considering all the backstory they share.
Jin first made his appearance in Tekken 3, while both Yoshimitsu and Paul has appeared in every single game, but at the same time Jin has a bigger role in the story, and has more or less become a main character of the franchise. Paul has his iconic haircut, but only has his fists to rely on. Yoshimitsu has swords, but in my opinion he's a boring character. I am not everyone though, so I may be the odd one out thinking he is.
What do you think?
