Tekken's is-he-a-man-or-a-robot-ninja-dude Yoshimitsu has been officially confirmed for SoulCalibur 6.

The Manji clan member, who is an ancestor to the Yoshimitsu who has appeared in Tekken since 1994, comes equipped with his trademark sword and acrobatic fighting style, and looks just as much of a pain in the arse to fight as he's always been.

Yoshimitsu joins a number of returning faces for the upcoming fighting sequel, including Taki and Nightmare. The game will also feature a guest appearance by The Witcher's Geralt.

SoulCalibur 6 is due out on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in 2018. You can check out Yoshi strutting his stuff in the trailer below.
