Heihachi breaks free of Tekken and enters PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Tekken series regular Heihachi Mishima will take his fighting skills to Sony's upcoming fighting PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale.

First appearing in 1995 and remaining a recurring character since, Heihachi will be testing the waters in Sony's universe on the Vita and PS3. The master of Mishima Style Fighting Karate will bring familiar moves like his Electric Wind and Twin Pistons to All-Stars. While the environment might be changing, Heihachi's "remarkable agility and strength which defies his true age" remain in tact.

Heihachi won't be fighting alone. His pet bear, Kuma, will also be joining him in battle.

Sony announced the new fighter on Friday along with an October 23 release date for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Customers who pre-order the game will be treated to exclusive skins for all of the characters in the game.

Speaking of Tekken, we just heard from series boss that the Wii U's GamePad controller may be too "distracting" with Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
