Pad players at Evolution 2015 playing Tekken 7 forced to use dualshock 4 controllers over dualshock 2 and 3

Though the Evolution tournament series is no stranger to countless kinds of controllers, a complication has arisen this year that will affect Tekken 7 players. MarkMan made a precautionary statement on Twitter a few days ago stating that for the current set up, dualshock controllers with converters will not be allowed. On the contrary, players who wish to play on a traditional gamepad will have to opt for the dualshock 4, the only variant that will work on the current set ups.

Many traditional pad players are used to older controllers, and have taken them to competition with them over time. To compete at Evolution 2015, they will have to adapt and start working with the standard PS4 controller.

We're back with part two of of Awp Williams' investigative series on the iconic fighting game character, Yoshimitsu.

Part one looked at Yoshi's storyline within the Soul Caliber universe, but this second part focuses on his story from the franchise he's arguably best known for, Tekken.

Kazumi revealed for Tekken 7 - gameplay trailer, artwork and screen shots

Kazumi revealed for Tekken 7

Kazumi Mishima was revealed this evening for Tekken 7. For those not familiar with her place in the Tekken universe, she's actually the wife of Heihachi, and mother of Kazuya.

Harada has previously stated that neither Jinpachi, Heihachi or Lars possessed the Devil-gene, which lead many to believe, prior to Tekken 7's San Diego Comic-Con trailer, that Kazumi was the first to have it, and therefore passed it on to Kazuya and Jin.

The SDCC clip subsequently proved this theory to be correct.

During a trailer for Tekken 7, Heihachi was revealed to be Kazumi's killer, which happened before the events of the first entry in the Tekken series.

'What the Hell is Yoshimitsu?' Awp Williams takes an in depth look at this eccentric fighting game figure

Alien, samurai, squid, ninja? Yoshimitsu's ever-changing appearance has had casual onlookers speculating his identity and origins over the years. Take a look at a few of Yoshimitsu's appearances from different games:

The back story actually reveals that this iconic fighting game character's ongoing story arc is very rich.

Awp Williams, a YouTuber who enjoys delving into the more theoretical side of games, has done some research on Yoshimitsu and shares the beginnings of his findings with us in "What the Hell is Yoshimitsu? Part 1."

While better known as a Tekken character, Yoshimitsu has also been a large part of the Soul Caliber series. In this first installment Williams discusses Yoshimitu's story within the confines of Soul Caliber, and helps us better label him beyond the old "Creepy/weird guy with the sword" title.

Just as a heads up, the video is briefly NSFW and may be somewhat offensive to some. Hit the jump to see it.

Yoshimitsu in action! Watch GuntamaMiraclein take Yoshimitsu into practice mode to perform a few combos as well as his Rage Art

Yoshimitsu was confirmed to be the newest Tekken 7 character just a few days ago. GuntamaMiraclein has just recently released some footage of the Tekken original in practice mode.

Though our analysis is obviously very limited at this point, he seems to retain his traditional feel and flow with his multiple stances and familiar moves. Guntama explores a couple of Yoshi's special moves as well as performs a few juggle combos.

Yoshimitsu has the ability to wield one, two or no swords as he fights. It looks like his Rage Art is a counter move that leads into a single, knockdown hit if successful. Sorry, no tentacle-based moves yet.
