Vita's upcoming Augmented Reality brawler Reality Fighters just got injected with a heavy does of nostalgia, as Sony has announced that Mr. Myagi will serve as the in-game tutor.

The Karate Kid sensei will walk you through the basics of the game and also serves as an unlockable character. He is outfitted in the "handyman" uniform from the original 1984 film and sports his trademark family headband. Jim Ward provides the voice, as Pat Morita — the actor who portrayed Myagi in the films — passed away in 2006.

So, if you find yourself repeatedly getting owned by virtual Cobra Kai punks, just remember: you're the best around. Nothing's ever gonna keep you down.
