When EVO 2019 broke for its Tekken 7 grand finale, a surprise was sprung on the fighting tournament's guests:
A custom codec message from Metal Gear Solid series star Solid Snake himself, declaring his love for Tekken.
What followed was a series of completely understandable reactions, disappointments, and anger.
What exactly happened?
Why was the interstitial shown?
Where did it come from?
And why do you always need to understand what you've licensed (and, more importantly, what you haven't)?
Don't say we kept you waitin'. It's time for...Virtual Legality.
