Dakota 'DarkHorse' Hills

Reporter

Dakota is the main morning front page reporter for EventHubs having been enamored with fighting games since he first played Tekken Tag Tournament in the early 2000s.

He spent the majority of his time at university studying web journalism, learning more about the video game industry and the Japanese language.

Hills also ran his own dedicated fighting game blog as well as a podcast and cosplay web page briefly while in college.

Street Fighter 5 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are his main fighting game focuses at the moment, but he tries his best to get hands on with everything around to stay up to date with the current landscape of fighting games.

Hills is constantly scouting new and interesting fighting game titles, and does his best to find what makes each of them exciting from Under Night In-Birth and Samurai Shodown to smaller games like Flappy Fighter and Metal Revolution.

Dakota has also crafted and worn a number of different video / fighting game cosplays over the years including Dante from Devil May Cry, Akihiko from Persona 4 Arena and Joker from Persona 5.

He will be forever waiting for the day that Persona 5 Arena is finally announced to awaken his true potential.
