When the “Mortal Combat x Game – Nobuaki Kaneko Challenges the World Awaited Game” TV program was announced, I honestly expected Kaneko-san to be slaughtered on air, again, and again, and again.
Now that the first episode is out, I have to give it to the popular Japanese actor. He actually knows how to handle himself.
While he might not be a pro Souls player, his timing and avoidance are definitely good, and he reacts to surprise attacks surprisingly well.
Despite a small blunder towards the end of the video, which you can see below, I can say that Kaneko-san’s performance is quite enjoyable to watch. He did radically better than most celebrities doing this sort of thing.
Moreover, there’s quite a bit of gameplay for us to enjoy, so what’s not to love?
