I remember all the summer breaks back in the school days when my sister and I would take turns in playing Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat with my brother on his Sega Mega Drive and we would fight so much in real because he didn’t like losing and he hated it when I would corner his character and unleash my favorite combo moves in repeat mode! Lately I’ve played a lot of Tekken and if only it was a Tekken tournament, I would have participated to kick some serious ass.

These photos were uploaded on the Arabs’ Got Talent Facebook page under the Kuwait album but I’m not sure if these are the final candidates selected for the Season 2.
Update: They uploaded more photos and I just got a reply from the AGT team that those are just random photos from the Kuwait casting.
