September 03, 2019 1 min read

WWE superstar and long-time video game fan Asuka has started her own YouTube gaming channel, where she will be uploading videos of her adventures on titles old and new.

The SmackDown star first set fans' tongues wagging last week, with a series of tweets which showed Asuka - real name Kanako Urai - building a new gaming setup in her home. This was followed by images of her designing a logo before "KanaChan TV" finally emerged on YouTube, alongside a short clip of The Empress enjoying a stage in Super Mario Maker 2.

This isn't The Empress' first rodeo in gaming. Alongside her global in-ring accomplishments, Kana has worked as a freelance gaming journalist and graphic designer, with her past work having been licensed by both Microsoft and Nintendo. Kana's twitter regularly plays host to gaming content, featuring eclectic titles such as Rolling Thunder 2, Super Mario Odyssey, Snatcher, Devil's Crashand ESWAT, alongside photos of her ever-expanding console and video game collection. Given the popularity of these tweets, it seems that the joshi wrestler has taken the plunge into becoming a content creator.
