At the annual Evolution Championship Series in Las Vegas last night, two new characters were unveiled for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. Heihachi Mishima and Toro Inoue have been announced for the game as playable characters.
Heihachi’s combo potential ranks among the best in the roster, turning every encounter into a stylish martial arts exhibition. 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.
Toro brings a unique stance-based fighting style to PlayStation All-Stars, affording him several different sets of attacks to utilize 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.
The new characters are playable at the EVO event itself. In addition, a new stage was also revealed for the game: Dojo, from original Parappa the Rapper on the PSX.
