  • Gorobei's death

    This is another great episode in this series. In the episode the Nobuseri is going to attack the Village of Kanna for a second time but this time they have far more powerful weapons than before. Now they are attacking with the giant Nobuseris and they also acquired grenades.

    Then the fighting started. This is were I had problems. Throughout the whole fighting sequences the characters did the exact same movements over and over again. This is the reason why I gave this a low.

    Since the fighting was so intense one of them got injured and the other one died. Heihachi got a hit by wood when a grenade exploded. Gorobei died because he was hit by the gun of the giant Nobuseri.

    The other reason why I gave a low score is because of the ending. Kambei just left. WTF.
