Tekken producer to fans: stop whining

Namco Bandai's chief fighting game producer, Katsuhiro Harada, has had enough of the fans. After drowning in requests to revive characters and use original voice actors in the new Tekken, the developer took to Twitter and launched a full-scale assault on gamers. That probably won't help. 

"I believe that, before whining and complaining about everything, you need practice at taking a step back and analyzing things objectively. And also at being an adult," said Harada. 

He would explain how many voice actors change their sound over the years, and highlights the difficulty in accurately recreating a 16-year-old experience. As reasoned as his arguments are, however, the man seems quite notably agitated. 

"I have even compiled 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.

"I still have some characters left to be revealed that comply with some of your requests, even 'Bringing back' several others. Even so, none of them are paid DLC. I will continue to sincerely comply with fan requests. However, I can't continue to engage the negative ones that, without knowing what you are talking about, or even thinking about what you are saying, blindly repeat 'bring back, bring back, bring back ...'
After this lengthy explanation, I will be quite surprised if there are still people who still don't get it.

"Thanks for understanding or not understanding. Whatever."

Ouch. I think someone might be a little bit angry. 

But he does need to BRING BACK THAT YOSHIMASTURU-SAN!i!i!
