Fujii received recognition and attention from many gaming wesbites and forums after he did the presentation for Ninety-Nine Nights II. His style of deliverance, humor and the way he spoke English was appreciated by many who were watching the presentation and he became a hit on the internet.
Gamers have already started wishing Tak Fujii a strong and speedy recovery. From the staff of GearNuke, we also wish Tak Fujii a strong and EXTREMEEEEEEEEE fast recovery.
