But that's always been the way that Tekken works. Pretty much everyone's endings except one of the Mishima's is canon, and everything else isn't.
That's it. Tekken tradition says everyone's endindgs are just for fun, and the storyline gets carried on by Mishima guy's endings.
So I wouldn't be much concerned about Brian or Yoshi's death. And, even if both of them eventually die, it's not like they can not be back and safe from the Hades for the next Iron Fist Tournament, right? Remember how our lil' Kazuya was dead for like 20 years... and Brian is supposedly a living dead right now.
I used to fear for Heihachi's presence on the series in the past, being such an old geezer and all, but seeing how a century-year-old Jinpachi can be in perfect shape, I fail to see see how health issues would force good ol'Heicachi to retire! As long Heihachi is in, let them bring on as many Tekkens as they want. All is right with the world.
I would really like to see an arcade version first, though, if only for tradition and prestige issues.

I've never understood the fascination with Tekken, but to each his own...
IMO, the only 3D fighter better than Tekken is Virtua Fighter. But mastering the game is so hard that it prevents playing with casual gamers.
Tekken is a game that has a fast learning curve, and is quite deep nonetheless.
It allows casual players to have fun, and 'experts' to have breathtaking matches.
Since T3, I've been playing with the same friends, each focusing on 1/2 characters (Brian, Paul, Heiachi, Julia, Kazuya, Lei). We know our characters (and others) very well so it's a lot of mind games, and any mistake will make the round...
I always saw Rival School as a 3D game with classical 2D gameplay...but I may be wrong.
