Yoshimitsu is coming to Tekken 7

Wow, really? I’d never have guessed

Yoshimitsu’s turned into a weird mix of Cthulhu, a Xenomorph, NiGHTS, and Frieza from Dragonball for his appearance in Tekken 7.

The video released by Namco shows him in all of his swordy, hovery, self-stabby glory; all while those luxurious tentacles of his flow elegantly in the breeze.

What even is Yoshimitsu? He’s appeared in almost every Tekken and Soul Calibur game and I still don’t quite know what he’s supposed to be.

Tekken 7 is coming to arcades May 12, with a console release at some point after that.
