    Josh Tsui started his career at Midway Games back in 1993. His first game was WWF WrestleMania The Arcade Game. He was also featured as a playable character in NBA Jam TE. Josh later joined the Mortal Kombat development team worked on both Mortal Kombat Mythologies Sub-Zero, Mortal Kombat 4 and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.

    Josh and a few colleagues left Midway in 1999, while in the middle of the production of Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. After this they founded a new game development studio, Studio Gigante, where they went on to create the fighting game Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus for Microsoft Game Studios and WWE WrestleMania 21 for THQ.

    After Studio Gigante closed it's doors in 2005, he moved on to EA Chicago to work on the Fight Night series. Josh was on the team developing a new Marvel fighting game for EA when EA Chicago was shut down in late 2007.

    After EA, Josh and his colleagues decided it was time to open another game studio, Robomodo, where Josh would serve as co-founder and president. Robomodo has since released three games for Activision: Tony Hawk Ride, Tony Hawk Shred, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD.

    Appearances in Games

    As was common practice during the '90s at Midway, Josh Tsui appeared in several of the company's games.

    Mortal Kombat II

    In MK2, Josh appears briefly as the unmasked version of Sub-Zero in the ending sequence for that character.

    NBA Jam Tournament Edition

    Along with many other Midway employees, Josh appears as himself as a playable character in the NBA Jam TE.

    Mortal Kombat 4

    While MK4 moved away from digitized graphics in favor of 3D polygonal models, many of the characters' faces were still modeled after real people. Josh's face was used for Liu Kang.
