Always up for some fun, Tekken director Katsuhiro Harada has entered EVO this year, competing in the Tekken 7 tournament. This isn't the first time that Harada has played competitively in his own game, but his attendance is always a crowd-pleaser.

In the video that we've embedded above, Harada fights in an early pools match against American player Scarlet. As is usually the case, he selects Feng Wei as his character.

Can Harada go on to win EVO 2018? Is this but a glimpse of his true power? Probably not, but we'll be rooting for him anyway (unless he's already been eliminated off-stream, in which case we're left thoroughly disappointed).
