Shaheen received favorable reactions, and his inclusion was announced at Harada's twitter on January 1, 2015.

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

Bodyguard for a Private Military Company, Shaheen is tasked with protecting key figures in the world. It is said that under his guard, no one has come to be attacked.

A friend to Shaheen that is a top figure in the oil industry was however mysteriously found dead. Although it was published as an accidental death, Shaheen always had his doubts. The G Corporation later acquired the private Military Company and everyone that Shaheen was previously familiar with ended up resigning after the acquisition.

Having figured that all of this was all too much of a coincidence, Shaheen set out to investigate and find out the truth of what is really going on.
