If you remember a few months ago, Harada asked fans for feedback on a potential Arab character. They showed some concept art, but didn’t share much else with us about the character. Now, Harada has tweeted out the CGI render for the character, confirming that is a Saudi Arabian character for Tekken 7 whose name is Shaheen. I like how they changed the outfit a bit so his “long belt” is now a sword/dagger. Hopefully its not too long until we get to see some gameplay of his!
To celebrate 5 years of Level Up Your Game, we’ve got three awesome prizes from @MadCatz to giveaway! We have two MadCatz Tournament Edition 2 Fight sticks and one Tritton AX PRO+ Headset! Three prizes, so three separate giveaways! One for Twitch subscribers, one for Youtube subscribers, and one for Twitter followers! Check out the video below for full details. Winners will be notified and chosen on January 10, 2015! Thanks for supporting us through the years and good luck!
Our friends over at MadCatz sent over a couple of the Tournament Edition 2 Arcade Fightsticks for us to giveaway as part of our 5 year celebration! The TE2 is one of my favorite sticks and I’ve been using the Killer Instinct TE2 stick for over a year. Now that the new generation of consoles are kicking into high gear, you might need some new hardware, so I figured a review was in order! Check out this review to see how MadCatz has taken their original TE1 design and improved upon it:
A few months ago, we looked at the IOGEAR KeyMander here on this site. This device lets you use a keyboard and mouse to play FPS games on console. Soon after our review, IOGEAR released a firmware and software update to the device that added Playstation 4 support – along with various other improvements. In this video review, I talk about the device from bottom to top and show gameplay examples from Xbox One (Destiny, Call of Duty:Ghosts) and Playstation 4 (Call of Duty:Advanced Warfare).
Over at the official tekkenchannel youtube page they put up the latest gameplay trailer, as well as the Lucky Chloe reveal trailer. As you can see, the trailers are at 1080p/60fps and Harada has confirmed that the game itself will run at 1080p/60fps! Check them out below:
Last night, Namco had their 20th Anniversary celebration for the Tekken franchise. They held exhibition tournaments, showed off the new character Lucky Chloe, and also debuted a new trailer of the game. In this video I recap the event and also highlight some of the most interesting moments from the Tekken 7 exhibition matches. How do you guys think the game is coming along?
