Gameplay

Shaheen has Lee Chaolan's "Gut Polisher", and a version of Lee and Law's slide. Whether the two are related in story, or if this is just a coincidence is unknown.

Story (Official Website)

Shaheen works for a private military firm specializing in the provision of security services. During his time in the army, he earned a reputation as an expert in one-on-one combat.

One day, his friend and owner of a company involved in the oil industry died suddenly under mysterious circumstances. In the postmortem, the death was listed as accidental, but Shaheen suspected foul play when his friend's company was suddenly bought by G Corporation and the management, all family members, resigned. He began to investigate the matter, and a relative of a close friend confided in him that a demonic man was pulling the strings at G Corp: Kazuya Mishima. Shaheen struggled to believe a real demon could exist, but his investigations revealed that Kazuya could be worse than any of hell's creations.

Shaheen was torn: Should he take revenge for his friend's death by destroying that demon, or not? Wracked with doubt, he embarked on a solo mission to infiltrate G Corp.

Trivia
