Check out this new trailer for Tekken 7 Arcade Trailer from the official Tekken youtube page. Not a whole lot of new stuff, but its always nice to see direct feed footage of the game at high resolution! Power Crush and Rage Arts also seem to function the same way from this trailer. Theres a small clip of Hwoarang’s Rage Art near the end as well! It also is pretty interesting that they released it as 1080p60 footage on Youtube. HMMmmm..
Mastercup 7 is live from Japan! The largest Tekken Tag Tournament 2 tournament in the world. This TTT2 tournament is a 5v5 format with 880 players, 38 TEKKEN machines, and all run in a single day!

Was the Tekken 7 Arcade Release Date not enough cool news for one day? Well then here are some new direct feed screenshots of Tekken 7 customized outfits for Ling Xiayou, Asuka Kazama, Dragunov, and Leo! I assume they are customizations because they are so unique and I can’t read japanese, but could they be the new default outfits? Someone who reads Japanese, figure it out and let me know! I, for one, am really eager to see what the new default costumes look like. As far as customizations go though, these certainly look to be more detailed than anything we’ve seen from past games in the franchise. Check them all out after the jump:
Looks like Japan will be seeing Tekken 7 hit arcades in February 2015. This information is available from Arcade Game Portal and features some awesome catalog images as you can see below. The full arcade cabinet price looks to be about $15,000 and the PCB version at about $11,000. Looking at some of these images, you can see that the full customization we’ve come to expect will be returning. Unfortunately all the characters in the catalog were available at the location test, so no one new to confirm.

Bandai Namco’s first location test for Tekken 7 has wrapped up. We got to see a ton of the game, but for those of you who may have missed it, here’s a vid with a bunch of the highlights from yesterday’s five and a half hour long stream. Got the Rage Arts for Bryan Fury and Marshall Law in here as well! bOom! Enjoy
After 3 long days of waking up early to try to get the special Tekken 7 Banapassports, which I’ve successfully claimed 2 of, I can finally write a complete GENERAL review of the game in its current form. Please note that I haven’t watched anyone else’s initial impression videos or read any posts, nor did I listen to Harada explain Tekken 7. I was sitting 7 feet from the man and I couldn’t hear him, so this is all from the observations of myself and my friends.
After 2 glorious years of Tekken Tag Tournament 2, the general Tekken population worldwide is just finally understanding the more in depth mechanics and interactions of the game. Even if we’re just breaking the surface of Tag 2, it’s time Namco put out the next iteration in the Tekken franchise, based on the roughly 2 year pattern. I’ll start by clearly stating that my personal experience with the game is that there is no relation between Tekken Revolution and Tekken 7. Excluding of the vague similarity between the new Power Crush moves in 7 and the Invincible moves in Revolution, the games did not play the same, move the same, nor share similar combo mechanics.
Didn’t get to watch all five and half hours of the Tekken 7 location test yesterday? Check out this recap with a bunch of the highlights. Tons of Rage Arts, combos, and hype moments from the day. Don’t forget that the last day of the location test will be streamed in about 12 hours and may feature Kazumi since she was the third Banapass card!
