Stuntman, actor and martial artist Eric Jacobus has recently returned to uploading episodes of his “Real-Life Tekken” series, wherein he takes a shot at replicating some of the more practical movesets of fighting game characters — through the usage of various bags and props, as accurately to the source material as possible.
To celebrate the recent release of Geese Howard as a DLC character in Tekken 7, Jacobus looks to emulate SNK’s King of South Town’s expanded 3D moveset as well as he humanly can: obviously without all of the Ki Charging, Reppukens and Raging Storms, with the same attacks being performed by Geese inside the game, played along simultaneously.
Though it may not be as realistic as most arsenals naturally seen in the franchise, Jacobus tackles the challenge with his trademark style and flair, even noting that the sheer impractical nature of the moves is in fact what makes them so interesting to see re-enacted.
“Geese’s style is catered to The King Of Fighters engine, which has all kinds of projectiles and strange attacks that don’t align with any one martial arts style. While some of his kicks could be useful, and a couple of his throws have applications, most of his moves are useless in real life, which makes them look super cool.” He even gets his “Hollywood cat actor,” Skid, in on the action.
