Katsuhiro Harada doesn't want players thinking it'
Katsuhiro Harada reacted on Twitter to a video showing off a new Tekken 7 mod which contains Elden Ring characters.
The mod, released by Ultraboy, can be downloaded now and adds eight characters from the FromSoftware epic to the PC version of Tekken 7, including Melina, Malenia, Alexander, Radahn, Ranni and a giant lobster.
Because the high quality mod (as seen in its own trailer below) could be mistaken for an official Elden Ring fighting game, Harada expressed his reluctance to encourage it.
“Um… sure, Elden is a Bandai Namco-funded title, and I was the production general manager in charge of Elden, so it’s not irrelevant,” Harada said. “It’s [a] ridiculously well-made mod but plz stop it lol.”
One fan asked Harada if he meant people should stop making the mod, or simply that they should stop tweeting him about it.
“You probably don’t know, but there are surprisingly many people who think this is [an] official one or make various understandings and contact us,” Harada explains.
“I don’t say anything for your personal enjoyment, but I want you to know that there are people in your community who make noise based on misunderstandings.”
