Just read through the Harada letter & let me tell you it is brilliant. Finally somebody stepping up. Above & beyond too, amazing translation. Harada has something for all of the whining & complaining Jimmys, who think they are Devs, or some sort of QC.

So I've read the Harada letter at this point in the day. I really laughed. It was a real lol. A few actually. Harada san letting out a flourish of verbal 10-hit combos to all the Jimmys out there.

"Do you know that all of the voice work for a character is not always done by just one voice actor? Using Brian as an example, the laugh you guys love so much uses the original data from Tekken 3, but the short kiai voice uses a different voice actor, and the "come on!" voice also uses a different voice actor. A lot of other characters also use different voice actors for the spoken lines and for the shouts."

Totally makes sense to me. They are creating a character and maybe wanted him to sound a certain way depending on what he is doing.Well it just so happens that 3 different voice actors is what it took to make Brian. WTF is a Brian?

Harada is directly speaking to somebody in this letter. It's personal and he completely channel all of his anger and hate into one place.

"The playback program is different, as well as the sound effects added; reverb and 5.1 are examples of this. The comrpression rate, as well as the sound rate, is different today. Are you playing games on the same TV you used 16 years ago? What about your speakers? Headphones? They are all the same as 16 years ago? I wonder if it will sound like the same voice as 16 years ago, even with that data."

Huh? Well? Stupid, is it? Is it the same? You still got those head phones your dad let you use that were 10x the size of your dome and he kept in a giant plastic case? Yeah I didn't think so. Sold them to some other nuab on eBay.

"I have even complied to the requests of you all spamming me to "bring back characters" from previous installments. You often say, "let's show the dev team how sincere we are by buying 2 copies if they bring back character X", but did you really go through with it? Expecting you to at least pre-order the game, I was met with more spam, after you apparently didn't notice that Jun and Michelle actually return."

Now Harada san is talking to some Jimmy specifically about not even paying attention to some Jun and Michelle info released. Plus talking mad shit about buying 2 copies and not even pre-ordering. Wow. The English translation of this is amazing.

The image above was from the last know place we saw a peaceful Harada san. Jimmys are on notice, don't try to talk no shit about "bringing back" any characters at EVO. Harada gonna give you the chop. 

I wonder if we will even see Tekken Tag 2 at EVO now. It was at E3, so probably. What's Capcom gonna show? Ono isn't going to be at EVO this year. Maybe Harada will skip it too. He definitely sounds like he needs to some down time. 

Shout out to Harada san, always giving me a high five when I see him. Oh and for telling these Jimmys to shut the fuck up. Vote, Comment and Share. Don't be a Jimmy!

Katsuhiro Harada declared new Street Fighter Producer

By: Arthvader Apr 1, 2012 | 4 Comments

Capcom has decided on Ono's replacement

     With Yoshinori Ono temporary leaving his position as Street Fighter Producer due to his current health condition, Capcom was working hard to find a replacement while Ono recovers. Today, they announced that Katsuhiro Harada will be taking over as the new producer of the Street Fighter series. He'll be doing this position while keeping his current position as Tekken's Producer. Expect him go to Capcom wearing his signature karate Gi from time to time.

What will his first decision be for the Series? to make the next big Street Fighter game feel more like a Tekken game, he said in an interview. He hopes to bring out a game in the Street Fighter series that both fans and veterans will appreciate in the coming future. He also want to let everyone know that until Ono has recovered and takes his position back, He'll has his Zaibatsu men take control of the day-to-day operations of the company.

Will this move make Street Fighter better, or will Katsuhiro cause the doom of the Street Fighter franchise?

Tekken X Street Fighter Hasn't Been Started Yet

By: Cinderkin May 11, 2011 | 12 Comments

With Capcom's SFxT coming sometime early next year, and a ton of footage being shown, gamers are anticipated more news on Namco's TxSF. Well we have some good news and some bad news. Check it out.

Tekken X Street Fighter is still on the back burner for now, while Capcom hammers away on developing Street Fighter X Tekken. "Tekken X Street Fighter, we really haven't started on that yet," Harada told Eurogamer.

Tekken X Street Fighter is slated in pencil for 2012. That was the Bad News.

The Good News is that they are working on Tekken: Blood Vengeance, a feature-length CG movie based upon the cinematic intros of Tekken 5 and 6. It has been in development since January 2010 and is scheduled to release this summer.

Harada stated that the movie doesn't have anything to do with that awful Live Action Film: "That doesn't have anything to do with it this time. We're not trying to rewrite those wrongs. Fans are always asking us for a 3D movie. This is our response to them... We want to make a movie that everyone can enjoy, though. Not just Tekken fans."

The movie is to be presented in full stereoscopic 3D and will tell a story that runs parallel with the events of Tekken 5 and 6. Check out this trailer for the upcoming CG movie.
