“I’m thinking about Itagaki and when [former 1UP editor and Q Entertainment's James Mielke] was with you guys that was a big topic — the ‘what are your five most hated games?’ article where he said 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 were all Tekken, right? If Itagaki was still making Dead or Alive, I’d like to ask, out of all the current Tekken titles we have planned, what’s his favorite. His answer would probably be Dead or Alive anyway, and that he hates all Tekken, but it’d be an interesting question. In the past, Itagaki had always mentioned various things about Tekken and stuff, especially on 1UP in his articles with [Mielke]. And there were a few times when I got pissed at what I saw, but I’m kind of realizing that when I saw what he was saying — after he quit Team Ninja, I think he was asked about fighting games and what he thought, and apparently Itagaki said, ‘Well I don’t make fighting games anymore, so I’m not really in a place to comment on that’ — I felt kind of sad when I saw that.” – Tekken creator Katsuhiro Harada, speaking to 1UP about Dead or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki’s infamous trash-talking of the series.
