Katsuhiro Harada's been busy working on the Tekken series for over 20 years now, but it looks like he's now entering a new venture as a barkeep.

Harada's Bar is officially open for business though it's not just a place to grab drinks, as the Tekken director premiered the first episode of his new discussion series of the same name with the first guest being the Father of PlayStation, Ken Kutaragi, featuring English subtitles.

The series appears to be similar to his previous Harada's Game Bar videos where he would bring on guests like Rohto|Tokido to have a few drinks and talk about a handful of topics that they share a common interest in.

Kutaragi brought with him a cask of sake which was apparently a tradition he held when completing a project at Sony with Namco like Tekken and brought back old memories of the pair's early PlayStation days.

There's not much FGC talk in this first episode, but the description for the series states that Harada plans to bring on eSports and other gaming-related guests in the future.

New episodes are apparently slated to go live every Saturday going forward, so it could serve as an interesting look into Japanese bar culture and insights within the industry in the country right now.

If you're looking to someday visit Harada's bar yourself, he's seemingly keeping its location a secret at the moment with plans for a more public opening sometime in the future.
