The mysterious female wrestler teased by Namco Bandai for inclusion in 3D fighting game Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is called JC.

She is a masked fighter who uses an acrobatic form of wrestling that makes use of her full body, according to Japanese magazine Famitsu (translated by Andriasang). Is she a Lucha Libre wrestler?

Little is known about TTT2. A younger Heihachi Mishima features, as does Jin Kazama, Jinpachi Mishima, Asuka Kazama, Martial Law and Miguel. Jinpachi, Heihachi's father, appears in the game in a form that makes him look like his last boss form in Tekken 5, according to Andriasang.

Players select two characters for a fight. You can switch between them during combos, as in the original PlayStation 2 launch game. New, though, is the inclusion of a tag-based throw system. Producer Katsuhiro Harada has said the game engine will be new.

The game's due out in Japanese arcades in the summer. A western release date is yet to be announced.
