Community Blog: SFxT Giveaway - Heihachi and Akuma: The Iron Fists of Death
Akuma and Heihachi make plans to kick ass. Whether it be each other's ass or the rest of the Street Fighter X Tekken roster is still undecided.
Street Fighter X Tekken is a game I never thought I'd ever see (in an official capacity anyway). There's no denying that I've always wondered what it would be like if Akuma and Heihachi met. What's most intriguing to me about the pairing of Akuma and Heihachi is how different and similar they are. Sure Heihachi may look silly (see below) and love to make himself laugh, but he's just as much the power hungry remoreless ass kicker that Akuma is. We're talking about someone who threw his own son over a cliff just because he didn't want a pansy for a son. (I still question why he adopted Lee, but that is neither here nor there.)
Akuma lives for the fight and he just doesn't have a rat's ass to give if you have a problem with it. That includes his master and his brother. Akuma beatdown Gouken so bad this fool was in a coma until Ryu grew up. I'd love to see Oni Akuma taunting Heihachi because he can't seem to get the devil gene away from Kazuya and Jin. What would be even better is if Akuma helped the king of iron fist learn some dark hadou.
Regardless of what the outcome of their initial meeting is, one would be hard-pressed denying what their combined efforts could accomplish. They would totally be The Iron Fists of Death.
