PlayStation All Stars Borrows Two Fighters From Street Fighter X Tekken

Billed as a big reveal tonight during the Evolution Championship Series, the next two fighters on the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale roster sound a little familiar. That's because Heihachi Mishima and Toro Inoue were both in the lineup for Street Fighter X Tekken.

Still, both have long and noteworthy ties to the Sony brand. Heihachi has appeared in all versions of Tekken since he graced the console original on PS3 in 1995. Toro is also known as the "Sony Cat." He appeared in PS3 and PS Vita versions of Street Fighter X Tekken.

PlayStation Blog vows that Heihachi will be formidable in PlayStation All-Stars: "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."

As for Toro, he "brings a unique stance-based fighting style to PlayStation All-Stars, affording him several different sets of attacks to utilise 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."

    Ps3 in 1995?

    The best is how much of a joke this game is.. What about Solid Snake he is just as much a ps character as anyone... Oh wait he is already in a smash bros game lol

    Finally some Capcom character that is not Ryu in a fighting game.

      But Toro in Street Fighter X Tekken was yet another clone of Ryu, and even keeps some of those moves in this game.

    Ah! Nintendo look at how much your younger brother Sony games division emulates you. At least ps consoles and ps hand helds have exclusives. While the distant and angry evil cousin xbox has two lol.
