Heads up, gamers! Here’s something that will excite you like free tickets to the NBA FinalsJollibee is possibly coming to Tekken 7!

“OMFG, ‘di nga!?” was our first reaction when we learned of this possibility. After all, it seems really hard to imagine a jolly, pot-bellied red bee throwing haymakers in one of the most successful fighting game franchises ever, right?

However, the fact that Harada said that he’ll consider putting a Pinoy character while obviously being ecstatic dropping the name of our numero uno fast-food chain is enough for us to think this could be legit.

And if you do a bit of research, you’ll find out that it’s not as far-fetched as it seems. You see, the Coastline Sunset stage in Tekken Tag 2 is set here in the Philippines, along Roxas Boulevard. Also, do you know that Mokujin is listed as Filipino in Tekken 6? And for a game that features other forms of wildlife—from deer (Roger and Roger Jr.) to a giant panda (Panda)—adding a huge chubby insect seems almost natural.
