    Toro Inoue and Heihachi Mishima confirmed for PlayStation All-Stars

    This news was broken at your good old PSU homepage.

    http://www.psu.com/a016028/Toro-Inou...tion-All-Stars

    In a presentation given at EVO 2012 moments ago, SuperBot Entertainment revealed two new fighters who will appear in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale: Toro Inoue and Heihachi Mishima.

    Toro Inoue may be unfamiliar to gamers who don't follow all things PlayStation in Japan (he's been a faithful mascot to Sony for over a decade in that region), but Heihachi is recognizable as one of the Tekken series' main characters. Here's what the PlayStation Blog had to say about the latter:

    "Hailing from the ever-popular Tekken series, the original mastermind behind the Mishima Zaibatsu joins the battle! Making his first appearance on the PSX in 1995, Heihachi is one of only five characters to appear in every iteration of Tekken thereafter, brawling his way through 17 years of King of Iron Fist tournaments. Heihachi fans will feel right at home with this newest interpretation. 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. Heihachiís combo potential ranks among the best in the roster, turning every encounter into a stylish martial arts exhibition. Though the battlefield has changed, Heihachi brings his signature fighting style and brutal attacks to PlayStation All-Stars!"

    And here's the inside scoop on Toro:

    "Toro Inoue, also known as the Sony Cat, has been a faithful mascot to Sony in Japan for over a decade! He has made appearances in numerous video games spanning several different Sony consoles and is a welcome addition to our roster. Though appearing to be simply a cute feline, the warrior within proves to be as formidable as the next. 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. All the while, Toroís fun-loving charm comes through in every action he performs. Be sure to check him out!"

    We will update this article with further details about each character as they become available from the EVO 2012 show floor. You can expect further details soon.

    Not bad at all. Hopefully characters like Cloud Strife, Raziel, and Sir Daniel Fortesque also make the cut.
    Thanks to Kwes for the avatar and Sylar for the signature!

    All I need that's not announced yet is

    Snake
    Crash
    Lara Croft
    Gabe (from Syphon Filter)
    One of the GTA Main Characters
    Ryu (Street Fighter)

    Seeing that WWF Smackdown series used to be PS exclusive for awhile it'd be cool to have "The Rock" or "Stone Cold Steve Austin" hahahaa.

    Heihachi is kind of a surprise, I was expecting Paul if anyone, since he's in the Michael advert, or maybe Jin or Kazuya. Good to see Toro too.

    Not really.

    Jin is a pretty generic, run-of-the-mill looking character. Whereas Heihachi is very easily recognizable.

    He's been the face most easily associated with Tekken since the PS1 days. No surprise, since he's been in every game and has been one of the main villains since day one.

    I already posted this on the main site, but here are my thoughts:
    YES! YES! YES! I LOVE IT! I was hoping both of these characters would be in! Heihachi's super is hilarious and a great fan tribute. I also love how kuro (black cat) made an appearance. These vids also offered a glimpse at big daddy and drake. I love how heihachi was made too look younger and that toro can change forms. These characters wre really good choices that reflect the playstation family legacy. I can't wait to see what they reveal next (which appears to be at comic-con).

    And here is my giant wish list so far:


    For levels:
    -pixeljunk monsters- towers being constructed everywhere (possibly manned?) and players must avoid the incoming monsters. Perhaps a challende in which the players must defend the flock?
    -shadow of the colossus-need I explain?
    -super rub a dub-a good sony tribute I think.players avoiding whirlpools and sharks. Again, perhaps a challenge in which players must collect and save the little rubber duckies?
    -starhawk-again, need I explain? Perhaps this crosses over with pixeljunk monsters?
    -Katamari - players fight on top of a huge spinning katamari ball with random objects spinning in and out of view (in changing directions) caused by the ball rolling, creating a dynamic battlefield

    I have a few more level ideas but they are less solid:
    -something inspired by ps home? The hub perhaps?
    -gravity daze?
    -motorstorm apocalypse? - buldings collapsing and players must avoid passing vehicles?
    -modspot? (mod nation racers) - perhaps a crossover with motorstorm?
    -ARI (Heavy Rain) - augmented tanks or bouncing balls? Idk haha


    For Characters:
    -prince (katamari)- pretty straightforward. Super(s): spinning charge/[unknown]/jumps out of view, revealing the whole level as a spinning katamari ball. Preoceeds to roll level around, crushing and killing opponents
    -squall- this one is a given. Super(s): GFs, limit break, and signature spells (perhaps lvl 1 is doom with a small hit chance?) It would be sweet if GFs played out exaclty like they do in the game
    -cole mgcrath (good and evil)-my most wanted character. Super(s): ionic powers of course. Kuo and Nix's powers factor in of course (perhaps his moves involve them like toro has kuro? Or maybe they could be separate characters or appear in a new marais inspired level?)
    -ratchet/clank- another given. Super(s): /rhino/mootator/groovitron
    -crash bandicoot-obligatory. Signature spinning attack and he could throw TNTor NITRO boxes. Super(s): /aku aku invulnerabilty and buff/wampa launcher/summon villain to fight with him (Tiny?). Also it would be funny if when he jumped on pepole wampa fruit would come out. When he does his level 3 super, he does his signature dance
    -spyro-also obligatory. Super(s): I honestly don't know
    -sackboy-2nd most wanted. Uses paintinator, grappling hook, and creatinator that spits random
    objects. Super(s): gains jetpack, allowing for flight and super speed/holds breath and pops, creating small explosion/opens popit, allowing for dropping large,obscure objects or obnoxiously placing stickers onto other players(killing them), or possibly physically moving objects in the level to hurt other players
    -Nariko-3rd most wanted. Moves are performed as combos. Perhaps guest appearances by kai? (similar to toro and kuro) Super(s): throws hat in slow motion aftertouch (steerable)/cannon/ lvl 3 range superstyle.

    Other characters (too tired to expand right now lol):
    -roach/bohan/flying fox.whiptail (heavenly sword)- too much to list but I think they would all make great characters
    -ellen/keats (folklore)- great potential here. many different possible moves
    -apprentice (sorcery)
    -sports champion character (character changes with costume change)-uses gladiator weapon, throws frisbee, spikes volleyball, uses bow and arrow
    -dante (devil may cry)
    -sora (kingdom hearts)
    -alex mercer (prototype)
    -claptrap (borderlands)-need I say more?
    -kat (gravity daze)
    -altair/ezio/connor (assassin's creed)
    -isaac (dead space)
    -cloud (ff7)
    -raiden (MGS)
    -Jin (tekken)- fights in combos like nariko. Super(s): tag moves/devil jin.

    maybes:
    -chell? (portal)- might be too OP...
    -white knight? (white knight crhonicles)
    -mech (armored core)
    -hybrid (resitance) a lot of potential but there may be too many far range gun-toting characters
    -Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)-iconic of course but again is another ranged shooting character
    -solid snake (mgs)- plays more stealthily than ssb equivalent. plus his supers would be cool to explore.

    MISC:
    Taunts
    Mandatory appearance by giant enemy crab. Perhaps the final boss?

    PS4 Launch Edition
    PS3 60GB (Upgraded to 500GB)
    Phenom II X4 955, HD 7770 1GB, 6GB RAM

    If you add my PSN say you're from PSU or I might delete it!

    Wow, definitely wasn't expecting this! Of all the rosters and predictions I've seen, not one ever listed Toro.

    I would just like to see Sir Dan make it in.

    @ mini E

    A White Knight related stage would be cool. I would love to see Madaros as a playable character too. Anyone that's played WKC II online knows how cheap he can be to fight against.

    Heihachi's super cracks me up everytime I see it. Makes me want to play Tekken, lol.

    This game is starting to grow on me now.

    Jin has been the face of Tekken since he was ntroduced in Tekken 3. Before that it was Kazuya. Heihachi though has been in every Tekken, which only he, Paul, Yoshimitsu and Nina have.
