He has had enough and knows you have to fight Harada’s ghost in Tekken 8!
The new ghost AI feature in 8 now gives players the opportunity to take the Godfather himself on.
But let’s take a look at how it works and just how good his ghost is.
Fight Harada’s Ghost in Tekken 8: Arcade Quest
Tekken 8 includes a new mode titled Arcade Quest Story. In this game, players are able to create their own avatar and embark on their personal quest to be the best Tekken player.
During this, players go up against the ghost data of other players, both new and famous. These include the likes of pro players such as Mishimastar’s Kazuya.
But one character that immediately stands out to players in this mode is the creator of Tekken himself. Katsuhiro Harada, the game director and producer for Tekken, is available to fight in this mode!
Under the alias Harada_TEKKEN, players are able to fight the AI ghost data of the godfather of Tekken. This was revealed during a Japanese showcase of the game mode, where the presenter was surprised to find the director sitting next to her within the game.
But for those unaware, they should tread lightly with Harada in the game. He has actually made a few appearances at tournaments, not just as a spectator but as a player! Although he is working on the game, he actually plays a mean Feng.
Back in 2018, he won against SCRB Scarlet’s Jin with his Feng during a Tekken 7 match. Since then and even before, he has been making short appearances at these events. Although he does not break the top 10, the fact that he can turn up and just win some is spectacular. Some may say he has an edge as a developer, but we both know that does not matter and he does not care!
However, playing against him in person does run the risk of your character getting nerfed. This new feature of being able to play his ghost means players can defeat Harada safely and without fear.
Hopefully there is no data stored on what characters beat his AI, though, because that could be tragic. Although we have not seen it in action, it is fair to say it is most likely a Feng fight.
Super Ghost Battle Mode
When hanging around the TEKKEN Fight Lounge, you will be able to launch a ghost battle through the profiles of players who are in the same lobby.
Super Ghost Battles start a fight against an AI based on the fighting style of the player you got the ghost; the more they fight on TEKKEN, the more their Ghost Battles will be accurate.
More than just their fighting style, it will also mimic their behavior and quirks. You will be able to train against that move and surprise your opponent next time you fight.
But keep in mind that they will be able to train against your own Super Ghost as well if they are in your lobby. It’s time to spice up your move list!
