These Tekken 6 Costumes Were Made By Manga Artists

Tekken 6 has mixed martial arts wear and lavish outfits designed by famous manga artists like Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto. He created an outfit for Lars that makes him sort of look like a certain Akatsuki member.

Mutsumi Inomata one of the main Tales artists designed this outfit for Zafina. Even though Namco Bandai Games America hasn’t said anything about them these costumes will be in the North American version of Tekken 6. We confirmed this with one of the team members during the Tapout press conference.

    Is this the first time Kishimoto has done art for some other work like this?

    Wonder how tekken will look like in high res 2d. I would like to try that.

    I knew Mutsumi Inomata designed Zafina’s outfit the moment I saw the picture. She has such a beautiful style, and her coloring’s gorgeous.

    kishimoto is alright but damn, namco has two of the worst art design teams in the industry working on tekken and tales games. those games have some of the worst art in recent memory.

    namco bandai really needs to fire whoever has been designing the tekken and soul calibur characters for the last couple of years, because their art has gone to absolute shit.

  • Damn Lars’ outfit is the shit

    Not really a fan of Tekken, but the Kishimoto design is pretty cool, always have been a fan of his artwork and he constantly improved over the last decade (can’t believe I’ve read Naruto for 10 years, I’m interested in what he does after Naruto, hopefully not semi-retired like Toriyama). The butterfly outfit looks like the pixie familiar in Persona..

    So how many manga artists are asked to draw these new costumes? I know there’s Clamp and these two..

    Kishimoto should quit designing game costumes and maybe try to improve his bread and butter a little.

      Naruto fan losing faith huh :)? It seems like he’s taken the series in a somewhat weird direction, can’t quite seem to lay my finger on it, maybe it’s more realistic and the theme is more parallel to our world, hence less exciting? I think the Shippuuden anime is handled very poorly… Hope it will have a satisfying ending wrapping things up, he must be tired after 10 years, and I look forward to his new work after Naruto, where he can write more freely.
