Nobi tells IGN how he quit school and made a career playing Tekken

Pro Japanese Tekken player Daichi ‘Nobi’ Nakayama on how he went from college dropout to Tekken knockout.

If you think you’re a dedicated Tekken player – think again. Pro Japanese Tekken player Daichi ‘Nobi’ Nakayama recently sat with IGN for a video interview at Namco Sugamo (an arcade in Japan where Nobi works) and shared with them about his deep obsession for¬†Tekken growing up. He says that he was so obsessed with the game that he found it extremely difficult to focus in high school and college. But little did he know that it would one day become a successful career.

Aziz Peregrino-Brimah aka Zee the CEO | Founder / Editor-in-chief of TekkenGamer | Gaming has been a passion of Zee's since the early days of Atari and ColecoVision. His first experience with Tekken was in the early 90's, and it was Tekken 3 that sealed the deal. True story... As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
