At the fighting tournament last weekend, the EVO organisers pranked the audience and set up a clip showing a codec conversation between Tekken 7 producer Katsuhiro Harada and Metal Gear’s Solid Snake. After a boisterous buzz of speculation that Solid Snake could be a new fighter coming to Tekken 7, EVO apologised on Twitter for the wind up and called it, ‘our idea of a little joke.’
Unfortunately, not everyone thought the same. One of those people is the real Katsuhiro Harada, who took to Twitter and explained his confusion and regret for excited fans. Translated by Reddit user Go2Fail, Harada stated that EVO has apologised to Bandai Namco for their antics and that EVO had made other clips that evidently -- and thankfully -- didn’t make it to air.
