Surprise… Surprise…

Our good friend Bob sent us a picture… So we’d like to share it with the TEKKEN world!  What could it be?!  Is it a new character?  A costume?  What is it!? Stay tuned for more information this coming Monday at 10:30 AM PST!  In the meantime check out the full image below!

TEKKEN 6 – ???

    I’m half joking and half serious when I say this but…

    Harada got Soul Calibur in my Tekken.

    I don’t mean this in a bad way… I think this screen could be a number of things: create a character, new custom items, etc. None of these could hurt the game we all love.

    Now if they would tell us what kind of Hori sticks are in the $150 bundle…

    …is that pacman i see on the shirt?

    lol this is insane markman! My guess is that this is pacman on a cyborgs body, hence his head hidden by the hat and robot arm XD

    Thank you MM

  3. ZeroX says:

    Can’t wait. Monday cannot come soon enough.

  4. drunkenmaster69$ says:

    is that customized baek on the pic?

  5. soft armpit girl says:

    yoshimitsu rival?

  6. Patrick says:

    New costume for Yoshimitsu?

  7. drunkenmaster69$ says:

    well.. i think it’s not robot arms… i think he’s wearing gloves

  8. Grey says:

    Wow this is such a tease.

    You’re killin me man!!!

  9. gdfhg says:

    cum on guys

    its a NEW CHARACTER!!!!!!

  10. Kuraudo says:

    Cardboard Tube Samurai?!

  11. Kikimaru says:

    It’s the Cardboard Tube Samurai!!
    FUCK YES!!

  12. chemicalRed says:

    As much as I’d love to see another new character I’m pretty sure this is just a yoshimitsu customization… Create A Character is a possibility too, but I’m not too excited about using an existing fight style with just a different character skin. And if this is a new character hopefully its not console exclusive.

  13. Bloodhound says:

    He better be just a joke character, because if he turns out like mitsurugi im gonna be pissed. If we wanted weapons in a fighting game we would play soul calbiur. I trust namcos decision that they wouldnt ruin their game with someone who only uses a weapon. He will probably be like yoshi.

  14. Farhan says:

    so that’s the new opponent tekkenbob was talking about on the twitter

  15. Izzy says:

    Seeing as Cardboard Tube Samurai has regular hands, and in the screenshot the hands are clearly robotic, I’m betting it’s a Yoshi customization.

    Still pretty cool that Namco would partner with Penny-Arcade to bring two of my favorite things together :D

  16. Ryuhza says:

    This looks like a Custom Yoshimitsu, change of clothes, change of swords, and you can see his cyborgish hands

  17. SolRahlX says:

    Remember guys… They said comic book artists would be doing extra costumes for characters… They must have included American artists too. This is probably just an extra outfit for an exisiting character.

  18. Revolver Turles (tmd02) says:

    Look i sounded like a noob before but now i have a logical explanation:

    It’s yoshimitsus console exclusive costume (similar to jins CLAMP one), and on monday i bet there will be a new trailer yet again

  19. Treehugger says:

    I think this is just yoshi in one of the new costumes that japanese artist designed.. As for the character that Bob is talking about, I’m sadly expecting Dr. B

  20. Marco says:

    Bob’s twitter said unique “fighting style”… can’t be yoshimitsu

  21. Izzy says:

    Confirmed by Game from Penny-Arcade that it’s a costume:

    So when Bob spoke of another Opponent, he probably wasn’t talking about the Cardboard Tube Samurai.

  22. Izzy says:

    Err… Gabe, not Game.

  23. Drunken Miller says:

    Looks like Kunimitsu to me…holding the right sword like her dagger…other sword possibly an item like yoshis outfit you could do in Dark Resurrection?

    • chemicalRed says:

      Some dude named Bastion posted a link here to a character named Cardboard Tube Samurai. The character looks very similar to the figure in this screenshot ( aside from the mechanized hands)… So I highly doubt this is a new character, especially Kunimitsu. I just think its a customization for Yoshi to mimic that Cardboard guy… Namcos customizations have made reference to existing character before and I think this is the case now… But that tekkenbob guy says there may be a new character introduced, and that’s cool, but hopefully its not another weapon weilding character… It’d be cool to see Kunimtsu return though, especially if shes not just a copy of yoshi play-wise.

  24. dbostick says:

    It looks to me like it’s Kunimitsu with a custom costume that’s meant to keep us guessing for now.

    • chemicalRed says:

      Maybe this isn’t the best picture to base a guess from, but it looks to me like this character is male… And unless Namco is returning to Kunimitsu’s Tekken 1 model then she should have breasts… I don’t think its her.

  25. randomkandom says:

    I hope that’s indeed as yoshi customization. A new char or create a char is just too lame and gimmicky.

    • chemicalRed says:

      I completely agree… I’m not excited about playing an old characters style with a new skin… That’s what Mokujin is for

  26. Kia JiLaw says:

    That looks like Yoshimitsu cause of the dual swords, metallic hand & metallic tail [you can see it wrapping around him]

  27. JinUAE says:

    maybe new custom character option.. I hope

  28. SolRahlX says:

    Penny arcade already said it’s a costume.

  29. LOLman says:

    Looks like a glitch to me

  30. DJ ENERGIZER NZ says:

    can it be??? Kunimitsu!!!??!!!


  31. Ezek!el says:

    We can assume one of two things:

    It’s either Yoshimitsu with a new costume.
    Kunimitsu with a new costume.

    Just click on the picture, in the URL it says “new_costume”. Haha.

  32. Killbomb says:

    This is cool and all but I hope it’s not the big announcement. Release date is all I’m looking for.

  33. SolRahlX says:

    For those that don’t know Yoshimitsu has moves where he uses a short sword along with his longer sword. That’s why you see a shorter cardboard tube and a long cardboard tube in that pic.

  34. tekken lover says:


  35. KENTOIRC says:


  36. KINGodfather says:

    I think it’s a new costume for Yoshimitsu. But I might be wrong.

  37. DevonX says:

    I think they’re getting 2 new chars for the consoles.
    why do i say that? i say it because what i heard in the E3 tekken interview. we have known for a long time that there is 40 chars in the game. But in the interview he said it would be 42 chars.

    • shika1983 says:

      The 42 characters could include Azazel and Nancy.

      Would be cool however if there was two more console characters.

      I’d be happy if it was Kunimitsu but BOB does state i it is a MALE. That Pic is probably just a customisation for Yoshimitsu.

      Regarding the new character it could be a PACMAN side game? Looks weak with a unique style. In BOBs blog he then has “Hmmm”. Don’t know if that is down to Bob being a greedy git or a reference to PACMAN eatting. LOL

      This is just a wild theory on my part so don’t flame me too much.

      Look forward to Monday to find out !!! ;)

  38. Mustafa says:

    i think that is a Yoshimitsu costume , or i think that is Kunimitsu .

  39. TekkenHore says:

    the big size picture url says new costume

    Did they just give it away? :P

    • MarkMan says:

      OOps… maybe ;) Or maybe I lied… :)

      • chemicalRed says:

        LOL… I think you gave it away.
        You obviously are a little more knowledgable when it comes to the latest Tekken news and Namco’s dealings, so can I ask you one question?… Namco has definitely implied that they value the fans’ opinion; They say that’s why they went multiplatform… But if they really listen to us then why havent they brought back Tag Battle.. I’m sure fans’ have been requesting it for years now..and itll definitely be more appreciated than a revamped tekken force mode.

  40. MarkMan says:

    This is my personal opinion… but I think even though fans want tag… I don’t think TEKKEN 6 is the right time to implement it. I’d appreciate it more if there was a whole new TEKKEN TAG game… Just my two cents.

    • chemicalRed says:

      Maybe you’re right… I wouldn’t mind a TT2 either…as long as I can play with a tag option I’ll be pleased, even if its in another game… Combos have really grown since Tag Tournament and I’d love to see how the bound system will work with tag team gameplay.

  41. DarkTalon says:

    looks like wang :/

  42. SolRahlX says:

    … Tekken Calendar and Samurai pack preorder while supplies last >.>

  43. Tenshimitsu says:

    LOL, Yoshimitsu in pyjamas. :) Sweet!

  44. MarkMan says:

    More news on the Calendar and Samurai Pack tomorrow ;)

  45. Tenshimitsu says:

    Can’t wait! :)

  46. SolRahlX says:


  47. Aldrin says:

    lol so creative, like dan brown.

  48. Zooop says:

    Jesus tapdancing Christ. Continuing the fine tradition of horrible alternate outfits again, I see.

    • chemicalRed says:

      LOL, yeah… I’d love it if they just let old outfits be available too…at least then something good wouldve come from Tekken 4

  49. don-cotton says:


  50. Autocrat1 says:

    Wait a min. Bob is competing in Tekken for the 1st time. So of course he would say that everyone is “new” to him.

    …I don’t know what’s worst: Dissecting tweets from a fictional person or studying fighting game storylines..
