Heihachi’s new default costume for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution revealed
Yesterday was April 1st, a day many like to refer to as “April Fool’s Day.” Capcom and Bandai Namco took part in the fun by setting up a fake webpage called CASH.COM, and on that webpage (which is no longer up) was a graphic of Heihachi in a new outfit. Was it a joke though, being that it was April 1st? Turns out it wasn’t!
Ever since Tekken 7 came out almost two years ago Heihachi Mishima had returned to wearing the same old tired and boring-looking default outfit. Coming off his younger, cooler self in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, this return was seen as a step backwards in our opinion. A few weeks ago at Final Round 19 (Atlanta, GA), Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray let it be known that Heihachi would indeed receive new outfit. Today that outfit has been revealed.
We think it looks awesome and worthy of a Tekken icon such as Heihachi. Take a look.
It didn’t take long at all for Twitter to react to the new Heihachi costume reveal either.
Sure, this new outfit for Heihachi in Tekken 7 isn't too bad, but they're never going to top the diaper. https://t.co/9uoE8dEEMO
