Tekken 7: New Look of Yoshimitsu, Launches May 12 in Japan

Did you miss him? Whether you wanted to play him or not, the fact is Yoshimitsu is back in the game! The Tekken 7 arcades in Japan are going to introduce him to the game as soon as May 12.

This was revealed recently by Bandai Namco Entertainment who also shared a trailer featuring the leader of the Manji clan who fights in the Advanced Manji Ninjutsu style that almost everyone finds weird (or at least different) at first.

However, Yoshimitsu has been in all the Tekken game ever since the original title was released except for Tekken Revolution, so it was a no brainer that Nacmo Bandai will soon unleash him. The point here is the launch date i.e. tomorrow.

Alongside the launch date, the appearance of Yoshimitsu in Tekken 7 is also interesting. He looks like he has had a visual reincarnation for the game and somewhere in the process he grew tentacles – many of them.

As you can see in the video above, Yoshimitsu will not only fight his unique style he will also distract you with the tentacles flying out around his head.

Tekken 7 was released to Japanese arcades on March 18, we are still waiting on a console release and a western release of the game.
