lucky-chloeLucky Chloe, who so happens to be the newest character in the upcoming Tekken 7 title that was revealed over this weekend, did not receive too good a treatment judging by the reaction of Western gamers. Hence, this has led the game’s lead designer to respond in kind, dropping a hint that she as well as other characters who have not been on the receiving end of praise might not be included in the North American version of Tekken 7. Bummer, as this would mean that Lucky Chloe is not so lucky after all.
