Tekken fans have been pestering Tekken creator, Katsuhiro Harada, to add a Waffle House stage. As a result, he had no choice but to ask the community using his official X/Twitter account for more context.

What is Waffle House?

Waffle House is an infamous breakfast diner that is open 24 hours a day and is located in America. Due to its availability, it has become a magnet for brawls, similar to what people see in Tekken 8.

This has been the reality within this diner, as it is a famous spot for drunk people and customers who lack sleep. It doesn’t help that the workers assigned to the graveyard shift are underpaid, demotivated, and frustrated.

Furthermore, a year ago, the internet saw how violent customers and employees can be within the Waffle House diner.

Ever since then, the place has been a victim of memes. The Tekken community obviously knew this and didn’t waste their time telling the famous Harada.

Overall, the Tekken creator has read all the replies and thanked everyone who took their time to answer his question. Unfortunately, he mentioned that trademarks and rights are a thing, making it challenging to create a Waffle House stage.

Harada’s tweet implied that he would ask the company. However, if they refuse, he cannot do anything about it.

If fans do get a Waffle House stage, it would be hilarious if Harada included an in-game reference. Perhaps a chair flies out of nowhere, or the stage gets destroyed and the Tekken characters are suddenly fighting in the parking lot.
