Story Highlights

  • Katsuhiro Harada responded to a Twitter/X user who called him a racist.
  • The Tekken Director was stern and direct in his response, shutting down all who’d dare to make such a claim against him.
  • Note that the Tekken franchise already features a highly diverse cast in each iteration.

Tekken’s Director, Katsuhiro Harada, was recently targeted by a Twitter/X user who called out the creators of Tekken racists, implying that this was the reason why Eddy Gordo hasn’t been revealed yet for the Tekken 8 roster. Katsuhiro Harada responded to the post, saying that if the user was going to claim anything just like that, they were hugely mistaken.

Harada further mentioned the presence of Leroy and Raven, two dark-skinned characters that have already been revealed for Tekken 8. The Tekken Director also explained that there were no Japanese characters in his favorite American shows and movies, but he had never felt discriminated against because of it. Furthermore, Harada then went on to scold the Twitter/X user for their remarks, calling them illogical and delusional.
