Tekken 7 – New Latin American Female Character Revealed!

by Rip

Just revealed from TGS on the MadCatz stream, a new Latin American female character has been added to the roster for Tekken 7! This character will also be available during the location test taking place in Japan from October 3rd to October 5th. Harada has said that the character will be beginner friendly. What does that means exactly? We will have to wait and see. Also, they mentioned that she will have a sassy attitude, and talk a lot while fighting! Additionally, a SECOND new character will also be available at the location test and has characteristics of a 2D fighter!

Also mentioned is that they were doing lag tests between Seoul, South Korea and Japan – possibly for arcades? Very interesting if true!

by Rip

Just announced on the Fray, MrWizard just confirmed (after beating Markman in a ft1 online) that Tekken Tag Tournament 2 WILL RETURN to Evolution 2014 this year! Markman reached out to Namco Bandai, went to Japan, met up with the team there and helped make this happen. So everyone say thanks to Markman23 on twitter, @Harada_TEKKEN, @mykeryu and everyone else! Additionally, Bandai Namco is an official sponsor of Evo2k14 as well! NOW is your time to show your support for Tekken everyone! If you can by any means get there, please do, and I will SEE YOU THERE! LETS GO!

UPDATE: REGISTRATION IS UP NOW! If you previously registered for Evo, you will need to email mrwizard@shoryuken.com to add Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

Final Round Recaps – TTT2 and KI

by Rip

Last week Primagames sent me out to Final Round, which was, yet again, an amazing tournament. I competed in TTT2 and Killer Instinct. I thought it might be interesting to share the experience of my losses, both to learn for myself, and for others to gain some insight into how to approach tournaments. Odds are you’re not going to win your first tournament, so its important to learn from your losses to minimize the chances of losing the same way again in the future. If you’re interested, check out my recap for the TTT2 tournament and my recap for the Killer Instinct tournament.
