Best known to gamers for his work voicing the head of the Mishima clan, Heihachi, in Tekken, Gōri-san, born Yoshio Nagahori, also lent his voice talent to countless anime series including Dragon Ball and Gundam.  

The actor can also be heard in games such as Soul Calibur, Dead Or Alive and the Japanese version of Metal Gear Solid 2. His body was found by a passerby face-down on a street in Nanako. A suicide note addressed to his family was found in his pocket.

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends on this exceptionally sad day.
