“For me, a video game is a puzzle with an objective to figure out. Spending that time understanding how win a game of Tekken, that’s where the fun is.”

Speedkicks is easily one of the Tekken scene’s most recognizable top talents. What might be less known is that the journey he took to get there started in Tekken Tag Tournament 2‘s beta test — and a lot of labbing to understand the puzzle that is fighting games, as opposed to some nebulous goal of “being the best”.

In his hour-long interview with BornFree, he shares his origin story, his love of Season 2’s re-balance, and his concern over Tekken World Tour’s new format. If you want to learn more about a top Tekken player’s mindset, this is the interview to watch!
