Tekken Voice Actor Dead, Police Investigating Suicide

Daisuke Gouri passed away this past Sunday at around 3:00 pm in Tokyo after being discovered wandering the streets in Nakano ward, blood dripping from his arm, before collapsing face-down. He was 57 years old.

Besides an impressive list of anime credits, Gouri also voiced Bass Armstrong in the Dead or Alive series, Mister Hercule Satan in Dragon Ball Z: Budokai and Heihachi Mishima in the Tekken games — among other titles that include Metal Gear Solid 2, Soulcalibur and Final Fantasy XII.

According to the report, a knife or some kind of sharp object was discovered near the scene as well as Gouri's last will and testament. Authorities are investigating this as a possible suicide.

    Drugs, its always the drugs.

      "some kind of sharp object"
      probably some kind of drugs

        not even sharp drugs can kill the king of iron fist.

    :( that would have been painful. all those wonderful characters this man represented.

    Wow. That's incredibly mysterious.

    so cut. ill smoke a jay and smash some tekken 6 out tonight to honour his memory haha

      lol make that two of us.

    The boyish fantasy part of my brain wants to believe he died in an epic one on one fighting battle, maybe to the voice actor of say.....Vegeta.

    rip, tekken 6 it is tonight.

    Perhaps he just saw the trailer for the Tekken movie?

      +1 :)
