Jackson entered the fighting game world approximately 1 year before Tony Umeda....
coincidence? Probably not, actually. TEKKEN 3 was a massively successful
game in arcades and on PS1, so Tony definitely seemed like a potential rip-off at the time.
Even so, Tony Umeda spiced up the roster of traditional samurai and was a pretty comical secret
character in Bushido Blade 2. From what I remember, he had a few
unique mannerisms... but not many.
