Posted on Nov 3 2012 at 08:05:30 AM in Artists
This papercraft is Yoshimitsu‘s Helmet, based on the fighting video game Tekken Tag Tournament of the Tekken series, the paper model was created by gankutsu-o-taku. Yoshimitsu was introduced in Tekken and he has returned for all subsequent sequels in the series. Additionally, an analogous character bearing the same name, weapon, clan, and basic information, was later carried over into Namco’s Soul series of fighting games as a secret character, making his debut in Soulcalibur and returned for all of the series main installments.
Yoshimitsu’s fighting style incorporates a blend of ninjutsu, sword attacks, and special stances. Wielding a sword, he has many attacks that utilize it. He can perform slashes with it, use it to impale his opponent, and rotate it with his mechanical left hand in a windmill manner. Another use of his sword is in “Harakiri” moves, where he impales himself or himself and his opponent with it, damaging them both.
He has many stances. One is “Meditation”, where he turns his back to his opponent and heals himself. “Indian Stance”, where he heals himself while sitting Indian style. Another of his stances is “Manji Dragonfly”, where he rotates his sword and his mechanical left hand to levitate in midair. He also has a “Flea” stance, where he stands on his sword by placing the tip into the ground and wrapping his hands and feet around the hilt.
Indian Stance is introduced in Tekken 2, Flea Stance and Meditation are introduced in Tekken 3 and Manji Dragonfly is introduced in Tekken 5.
As of Tekken 6, Yoshimitsu can now sheathe his sword and fight without it, and he can also use two swords in some of his attacks. In Tekken, Yoshimitsu’s fighting style is very close to real ninjutsu, minus the sword attacks.
Yoshimitsu’s official fighting style is Shin Tenpu-Kosai-Ryu with a mix of Ninjutsu. However, starting with Tekken 6, he uses Kenjutsu with a mix of Ninjutsu.
Tekken Tag Tournament (Tekken Tag and TTT) is the fourth main installment in Namco’s popular Tekken fighting game series. It, however, is not canonical to the Tekken storyline. The game was originally available as an update kit for Tekken 3. Tekken Tag Tournament was originally released as an arcade game in 1999 before it was ported to the PlayStation 2 in 2000. The arcade version operated similarly, but ran on a 32 bit graphics engine like Tekken 3. It received upgraded graphics when it was ported to the PlayStation 2. It, along with Tekken 4 and Soulcalibur II, was re-released in 2008 as a part of Namco Classic Fighter Collection. After 10 years, a sequel has been announced named Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
A remastered version of the game titled Tekken Tag Tournament HD was released for PlayStation 3 in November 2011, as part of a Tekken Hybrid disc which also includes the 3D movie, Tekken: Blood Vengeance, and a demo version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
Tekken Tag Tournament, being a non-canon game, features no storyline. It is more of a compilation of the Tekken series giving fans the opportunity to play as almost every character in the series up to that point, including many of those that had apparently been missing in the main Tekken storyline. Of all the returning characters, Kazuya Mishima was the most heavily promoted, since he featured prominently on the game’s cover art and promotional material, despite his absence from the previous entry in the Tekken series. When Arcade mode is completed, a real-time ending is shown over the credits for the main character. The exception to this is Unknown’s ending, which is a FMV.
