Tekken producer Katushiro Harada missing for a week, believed to be okay
Katsuhiro Harada has gone missing. Peep inside to find out why the team behind Tekken believes their commander-in-chief is safe.
It appears there are issues brewing between Katsuhiro Harada and his Tekken team over at Namco Bandai. Yesterday (June 4) Tekken game designer Michael Murray sent a tweet saying he was called into an executive meeting because the team couldn't find Harada. He had also claimed he overheard Harada screaming at an individual at a meeting last week before "storming off."
The team updated Harada's official Twitter account to confirm that he has been missing for a week. The account was updated by the team earlier today to assure fans that they believe Harada is okay because he has been logging into his Steam account daily.
This of course does not confirm Harada's status at the moment. It's possible that Tekken's head honcho lets family members or friends access his Steam account. We'll keep you updated on when or if he returns to the Namco Bandai offices.
Fernando's POV: Commenters on various sites believe this is a stunt for E3 2013. That's extremely presumptuous and isn't based off facts. You've got to love the Internet.
