Joystiq interview: DOA creator Tomonobu Itagaki, "Tekken sucks"

Joystiq caught up with Tomonobu Itagaki at the recent Championship Gaming Series North American World Series Final (try printing that on a hat) in Manhattan Beach recently, and Joystiq asked him a few questions. Although he'd had a few beers, joystiq didn't get him to pin down a date or a console for Ninja Gaiden 2, curse you weak American beer!

"Yes, he was wearing his patent black leather jacket and sunglasses, and no he didn't take them off. Even when it got dark. They might be permanently welded to his face at this point. While he's known for being outspoken and critical to the extreme (especially if your game has the word Tekken in the title), when Joystiq asked him about Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword, he actually handed over his DS to us and let us play through an early build of the game."

The story is too old to be commented.

the 6 year old kids with a website (joystiq) wanted to get a reaction when they asked him two questions. This one:

Well, along those lines, are you looking forward to Tekken 6?

Tekken sucks. I don't know what you're talking about.

The industry knows he hates the Tekken series with all his guts.

and the question about the systems.

He thinks any fighting game sucks that will pull off Multiplayer that isn't just splitscreen.

We all know he hates Tekken, he is always saying Tekken sucks, it was very immature for joystiq to ask such stupid question by then again this is a pathetic blog run by some really stupid guys.
