Masahiro Sakurai set to appear on Katsuhiro Harada's bar talk show

Bandai Namco’s Tekken boss Katsuhiro Harada recently launched a talk show called Harada’s Bar, and its next guest is none other than Masahiro Sakurai, director of the Super Smash Bros. franchise. A new teaser video gives us a peek at what we can expect to see from the two industry veterans and longtime buddies.

Katsuhiro Harada opened Harada’s Bar earlier this year and has been hosting talk shows with various guests from the industry. Nobody knows where the bar is, but Harada plans to eventually make it public so anyone can visit. The first episode featured former chairman and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment Ken Kutaragi, who talked about launching the original PlayStation. The interviews consist of lighthearted talks between Harada and his guests, all while knocking back some drinks in a casual setting. While Sakurai doesn’t consider himself much of a drinker, perhaps we’ll get to hear some fun stories for the occasion.

The teaser video gives us a look at how things start with Harada visiting Sakurai’s home before the talk show. The funny part is that it doesn’t even take a minute for Harada to take a jab at his longtime frenemy and former Capcom producer, Yoshinori Ono, who is now the president and COO and DelightWorks.

Check out the teaser video for the Harada’s Bar featuring Masahiro Sakurai episode below:

The teaser video doesn’t specify a date for when we’ll get to see the full video. In any case, it will be “coming soon,” so stay tuned for now.
