SCE Xdev Studio has confirmed via the Official PlayStation Blog that none other than Mr Miyagi, the wise sensei from the classic Karate Kid movies, will feature as the player's instructor and guide through the augmented reality experience.
As players learn how to create their own fighters and battle it out in real-life locations using the PS Vita's in-built camera, Miyagi-san will offer guidance with his trademark warm humour and mystic wisdom.
Veteran voice actor Jim Ward will play Miyagi in Reality Fighters, as original actor Pat Morita sadly passed away in 2005.
Truly skilled players who battle through all the other characters will even have the chance to fight against Mr Miyagi, a testing battle that could earn them the chance to play as the legendary character.
Reality Fighters is set to launch in February 2012 alongside the PS Vita console.
