Yoshimitsu in Tekken 7 may be the best, weirdest Yoshimitsu ever

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Venerable fighting game swordsman Yoshimitsu — who appears in both Tekken and Soulcalibur — is getting a bold new look in Tekken 7 and is apparently now part ... octopus?

Yoshimitsu has always been one of the more interesting looking characters in the Tekken and Soulcalibur series, with a bizarre set of fighting moves to match. In the past he's appeared as a ninja-samurai-beetle-alien-ghost-demon-kabuki thing, as different characters have taken on the Yoshimitsu persona and Bandai Namco has played around with his look.

You can see Yoshimitsu as he'll appear in Tekken 7 in the video above, or get a closer look in the gallery below.
