Rizal hails from the Philippines and uses Eskrima & Kickboxing as her
fighting styles (reminiscent of a fighting style called Yaw Yan). Several
aspects of her outfit take inspiration from the National Flag of
Rizal tried her best to support her family by balancing two jobs; one as a
model, and one as a professional kickboxer. One day, while she was out running
on her usual training course along the mountain roads, she was suddenly
confronted by an enormous, hairy creature (Kuma)!
Josie screamed, and then fled half in tears, but the creature remained hot on
her heels. Realizing she had little chance of escape, Josie abruptly came to a
halt, then turned trembling, to face her feral foe...

Josie is a fairly
simple, yet aesthetically decent design. Cleverly, her default outfit is
themed around the Philippines flag... in a similar way to Tiffany's
from Rival Schools ( based on the U.S.A flag). With Josie
seemingly taking the place of Bruce in TEKKEN
7, she understandably debuted with some negative "heat," you might
say. Once you give Josie a chance, she's got some unique, fluid fighting
techniques and definitely hits hard. I think Josie's default stance could be animated a bit better, but she's got some cool elements to her moveset.
Her "unconfident" personality is catchy and pretty unique to fighting games,
although her personality should be developed further and fleshed out if she plans on sticking around in sequels. Also worth mentioning, her biker-chick alternate costume is pretty sleek!
