Heihachi Mishima And Toro Inoue Are Two Newest Fighters In PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale [TRAILERS]
As promised, SuperBot has revealed the two latest characters to be included in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Heihachi Mishima and Toro Inoue! Hailing from the ever-popular Tekken series, the original mastermind behind the Mishima Zaibatsu joins the battle! Making his first appearance on the PSX in 1995, Heihachi is one of only five characters to appear in every iteration of Tekken thereafter, brawling his way through 17 years of King of Iron Fist tournaments. Heihachi fans will feel right at home with this newest interpretation.
Familiar moves such as his Electric Wind God Fist and Twin Pistons are intact and as deadly as ever. He excels at close-range combat, overwhelming opponents with quick, powerful strikes. Heihachi’s combo potential ranks among the best in the roster, turning every encounter into a stylish martial arts exhibition.
Toro Inoue, also known as the Sony Cat, has been a faithful mascot to Sony in Japan for over a decade! Though appearing to be simply a cute feline, the warrior within proves to be as formidable as the next. Toro brings a unique stance-based fighting style to PlayStation All-Stars, affording him several different sets of attacks to utilize in combat. He transitions seamlessly from a close-range fighter in his Justice form, to a ranged specialist in his Torobi form, to an effective wide-area controller in his Oni form. All the while, Toro’s fun-loving charm comes through in every action he performs.
They also announced a brand new stage called Dojo. Fans of the original Parappa the Rapper on the PSX will immediately recognize this kung-fu dwelling, which is where Parappa originally acquired his martial arts arsenal from Chop Chop Master Onion.
So what are your thoughts on these two new characters folks? Personally, I’m underwhelmed with them but I know they are just saving some of bigger surprises for closer to launch day.
