Episode details

I recently got a chance to catch up with one of the biggest Tekken fans I know— he plays Zafina and is an avid Tekken Music fan.


No description available.

His name is Will Smith but he goes by DrLegendI (you can catch out his twitch channel where he streams weekly)

He’s got a Tekken tattoo and has been playing Tekken since he was 5 years old. Will and I connected over our passion for Tekken so we decided to sit down for a casual conversation to discuss Street Fighter 6, a possible Tekken 8, and a few of his favorite Tekken records.
