Yoshimitsubishi

Yoshimitsu, you’ve changed man. You’ve changed! You used to be this weirdly awesome demon ninja samurai. Then you became some sort of man grasshopper. A Manhopper. Then you were a cyborg for reasons that have yet to be explained. Now? It’s like your latest incarnation was designed by a committee of calamari fishermen and hentai artists. But you’re still kicking ass! And possibly taking names!

Even though it’s only headed to arcades (for now), Yoshithulu plays pretty much like he always does. Madly. Guntama detailed everything in the video below, which has Yoshimitsu performing some of his classic moves, as well as a few new ones. I honestly can’t wait for the eventual home release of Tekken 7, so that I can drive Geoff mad by using a tag-team combination of the mysterious ninja and the polarising Lucky Chloe character:

I still can’t get over that new design. I kinda dig it, but it’s just so weird. I mean, compare it to previous versions of Yoshimitsu:

Tekken 1

Yoshimitsu (1)

Tekken 2

Yoshimitsu (2)

Tekken 3

Yoshimitsu (3)

Tekken 4

Yoshimitsu (4)

Tekken 5

Yoshimitsu (5)

Tekken 6

Yoshimitsu (1)

I always naturally gravitated towards Yoshimitsu whenever I played a Tekken game. Primarily because he had a sword, which I always thought would be particularly handy in whatever encounter I found myself in. I learnt the hard way that using that sword was mostly a pipe dream of ridiculously difficult combos, punishment windows and suicidal attacks. And that’s why I play as Steve Fox in Tekken games. Duck and weave son, duck and weave.

  1. I don’t think a guy with swords getting beaten by a girl with her fists is cool, or worthy of inclusion in a game. [redacted]

          Firstly…Don’t bring Ariel into this, okay? That sweet, innocent, half naked mermaid has nothing to do with this.
          Secondly, I’ll do me then, pfft. I’ll go and play the better game 😛

        After playing MKX I have to agree. MKX isn’t nearly as good as MK9 even with all the new ideas

            Sad but true. MKX is great and all but just lacks something. I cant put my fingure on what though.

            Yeah, on reflection the story is bland, The living towers are not that exciting, it takes much much longer to grind coins for the krypt, the microtransactions feels like the game is whoring it self out and the faction system doesn’t makes sense and feels pointless.

      Same, that’s when he looked like a proper ninja with a mask and not some weird cyborg with tentacles.

    Tekken 3 version of Yoshimitsu is the best honestly. Tekken 4’s one is looking much like a freaking bug. The later ones just get all alien looking lol
