Heihachi Mishima... is dead.

 His voice actor apparently commited suicide looks like Heihachi could be done for good this time. I didn't even know he did the voices for Hercule and Bass.

"Daisuke Gouri passed away this past Sunday at around 3:00 pm in Tokyo after being discovered wandering the streets in Nakano ward, blood dripping from his arm, before collapsing face-down. He was 57 years old."
 
What kind of suicide involves walking around in city streets?  I guess I can barely imagine it, but suicide isn't the first thing that comes to mind.

There are some that choose to have very public suicides, for all manner of reasons, who can know what his reason were... It sounds to me like he may have been high on prescription drugs... 
   
Unless there are legal hurdles that prevent so, Namco should continue to use his voice work whenever possible.

I kinda want to insert a falling in a volcano joke, but that would be inappropriate. 
 
Rest in Peace.

What a badass way to commit suicide. Only a true samurai.

I think they found his will right next to him, either it's suicide or an elaborate murder. More likely than not it's the former.  
 
Kind of weird how he just killed himself, he was the voice actor of a much beloved video game character. I wonder what personal demons he had.

Damn, that's sad to hear. He's great at his job.....gonna miss Heihachi.
 
RIP.

He has done a ton of voices for anime as well like Dragonball Z (Mr. Satan) and Gundam (Dazle Zabi) just to name a few.  He will be missed.                 :(

That doesn't make sense, he was cut on the arm, so he than wandered around in the streets.  I think either I tried and freaked when he actually did it and ran onto the streets for help, or somebody cut him for reasons unknown and he was running away.
 
RIP

Sad to hear this. May his soul rest in peace.

Damn, I just started playing Tekken 6 and now I hear this.. RIP, his contribution to the series has been amazing. In the T5 intro, his macho grunts when Heihachi is being pinned by the Jacks still brings a smile to my face.

That sucks. :( 
Heihachi is badass.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT!!!  I mean, obviously, it's not straight-up seppuku, but regardless, the Japanese look at suicide in a very different way than America does. 
 
So yes, what a badass way to commit suicide.  Was it, like, wrists slit or what?

You would have thought that the voice actor would out live some old ass guy.  Seriously?  Why did this guy not die yet? Thought he would have died of colon cancer by now.
