The new Tekken 7 character design for Yoshimitsu has been revealed. Yoshimitsu's look and fighting style has frequently changed over the years, however the Tekken 7 rendition is quite the departure.
Yoshimitsu was originally introduced in Tekken. Due to his unique look and fighting style he has proven popular amongst fans and he has returned for all subsequent sequels, becoming one of only four characters to do so. This popularity has maintained despite Namco frequently changing both his fighting style and look over the course of time (though the Alien-meets-purple-squid look is quite the departure even for him).
The design is pretty amazing (my opinion) and the creators have kept aspects of the character that are typical Yoshimitsu - for instance, though they too have been redesigned, Yoshimitsu is still using a sword and is dual-weilding (a gameplay aspect that has carried on from Tekken 6).
Player reactions to the new design so far has been mostly positive, if not slightly confused. You can check out the new Yoshimitsu in action for yourself in his introduction video below:
