First Details Surrounding Tekken 7’s King of the Iron Fist Tournament Surface

We’ve heard rustlings surrounding Tekken 7’s aptly-named King of the Iron Fist Tournament, but details surrounding the series remained rather limited prior to today. Just a short while ago, Gamespot revealed the first battery of information surrounding these tournaments, so we all have a better idea of what to look forward to.

As far as basics are concerned, the tournament will be part of the Wizard World Con tour and is free for everyone to enter. The tournament will take place across North America with stops in sixteen different cities, culminating in a North American final where the top competitors from each stop will compete for their share of a prize pool totaling $30,000.

You probably also noticed that we’ve not mentioned Fated Retribution yet in this article, and with good reason. According to Mark “MarkMan” Julio, the King of the Iron Fist Tournament tour will begin under Tekken 7 and will, at some point down the line, make the switch over to Tekken 7 Fated Retribution.

Further details, including when the switch over to Fated Retribution will take place, are forthcoming.

Bandai Namco Open House 2016 Media Coverage

Image

To showcase Tekken 7 Fated Retribution, Bandai Namco organized "Open House 2016" last week which invited journalists to their new studio in Santa Clara, California to dig into the minds of Tekken's lead Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray. We are now starting to see the media coverage from this opportunity surface on the internet and I'll be gathering all I could find here. The interviews to come from this divulges a lot of interesting announcements and developments as well as thought processes going into the game and the player communities and it's all well worth the read for people following the Tekken series. I'll be updating this piece as we go along but here is what's out there so far.

“For Tekken, luckily, we’re still able to have a healthy arcade version and recoup the funds for developing it,” Harada explained. “Sometimes, western gamers say it’s an outdated business model, but what people don’t realize is that that phase allows us to polish the game and make a more complete package when it does come to consoles. We also get a large bit of profit, more than most people would probably realize. Those funds don’t go into our pockets--they pay for all the fancy bells and whistles of the console Tekken that people love, like additional characters, beautiful cinematic movies, and more. We’re able to do that because of the profit we get first from arcades. So if we were to develop from scratch just for consoles, it would be much more difficult.”

Bandai Namco has announced a competitive tournament for its fighting game Tekken 7: Fated Retribution. Titled King of the Iron Fist Tournament, the event will run across North America with stops in 16 cities. The tournament will be hosted in partnership with the Wizard World Con tour, and is free for anyone to enter.

The winner of each tour stop will go on to compete in the North American final, where they will duke it out for a share of the $30,000 prize pool. Bandai Namco has said it hopes that the event will make Tekken 7 more accessible to the masses.

GameSpot: Who is your favorite Tekken commentator?

Harada: Aris--now that he's a little bit more grown up--is one of the obvious choices because he's very entertaining. Then also MarkMan for MC and such. Rip is actually quite good for people who are new to the series and easy to understand. Personally, I like Tasty Steve. I don't know if you're all familiar with him. He's very hyped, very knowledgeable about both Tekken, but also Street Fighter and other fighting games. He's probably my favorite.

GR: During the numerous Tekken 7 matches at the event, Akuma seemed to be quite powerful, retaining most of his iconic Street Fighter moves (plus an EX gauge) as well as having the Raging Demon Rage Art and a tackle takedown similar to Jin's and King's. Does Akuma have any particular weaknesses that expert players will notice?

Harada: Akuma might seem intimidating at first, but he does actually have a few weak areas. He is actually not that hard to deal with if you have the necessary knowledge to counter him. However, this is one area that we are still working on, so that we can make the game a lot of fun.

GR: If you had a chance not to worry about licenses, what other game characters (from other fighting games or otherwise) do you think would fit in the Tekken roster?

Harada: If it were a game character, let me think. I would ask for two—one from a fighting game, and one that is not.

I think from fighting games, it is definitely Akuma, and I think that it is a good choice, as you can tell from the overwhelmingly positive feedback. If I had to choose another, perhaps Geese Howard. I think a bad man like him would fit well in Tekken, and I am confident we can make him look pretty cool in TK7.

Regarding a non-fighting game character, that’s difficult. Any good ideas? Personally, I would like to take Spelunker from the SNES. When someone chooses him from the character select screen, he is so surprised to be chosen that he dies before the match! lol.

Bandai Namco Releases Details Surrounding ‘Tekken 7: The King of the Iron First Tournament – North America’ Tour

Back in February, Bandai Namco began what would become a year-long tour of North America, bringing Tekken 7 to conventions and major fighting game community events for fans of the series to show what they’re made of. Prior to today, many details surrounding this tournament tour remained shrouded in mystery, but now we’ve got the full scoop on what to expect moving forward.

Each stop on the tour will feature a $3,000 prize pool with the final event boasting $20,000 in cash prizes. The winner at each stop along the way will qualify for the finals event, the date and location of which are still forthcoming. Heres a recap of the schedules on whats left:

May 27-29 Chicago, IL Combo Breaker
June 2-5 Philadelphia, PA Wizard World
June 17-19 Sacramento, CA Wizard World
June 24-26 Orlando, FL CEO 2016
July 29-31 Columbus, OH Wizard World
August 5-7 Orlando, FL Wizard World
August 18-21 Chicago, IL Wizard World
August 19-21 Philidelphia, PA Summer Jam X
September 9-11 Richmond, VA Wizard World
September 23-25 Austin, TX Wizard World
October 14-16 Southern California SoCal Regionals
October 28-30 Toronto, Canada Canada Cup
November 4-6 Pittsburg, PA Wizard World
TBD TBD Tekken 7: The King of
the Iron Fist
Tournament 2016 North
America Final

So far, five players have qualified for the final showdown: Geesemaster (Wizard World Portland), Circa|Anakin (Final Round XIX), Brawlpro (Wizard World St. Louis), Mr. Naps (NorthWest Majors 8), and ZTS (Wizard World Minneapolis).

When Mark “MarkMan” Julio contacted Shoryuken with this information, he also made it a point to direct our attention to an important rule in place for the tournament tour, which states that “[q]ualified champions cannot compete in future ‘TEKKEN 7: The King of the Iron Fist Tournament 2016’ events after qualifying unless they relinquish their qualifying spot.” This should help encourage plenty of new faces to make themselves known in the Tekken scene.

For more information regarding this series of events, as well as a complete list of rules, you can visit the Tekken 7: Tournament Rules page.

Tekken 7 Fated Retribution Japanese Teaser Website Launched

The Tekken Project team rolled out the official website for Tekken 7 Fated Retribution with a story teaser. The stage is set for the upcoming expansion to Tekken 7 that is set to come out in arcades in 2 months time. This signals that activity on the game will be rolling out from now on until the launch and I have a good feeling that the news that we've all been waiting for is right around the corner. (E3 is on June 14-16!)

Declaring war on the world, the Mishima Zaibatsu launched into large-scale conflict.

To counter the company, its opponents the G Corporation enters the fray.

At the peak of the intensity of the conflict between the two factions, Jin Kazama, then leader of the Mishima Zaibatsu has gone missing.

Without leadership, the Mishima Zaibatsu became vulnerable to several offensives from G Corporation.

The progress of the war saw it in a dominant position. At that moment, one man took possession of the Mishima Zaibatsu. His name was Heihachi Mishima, the original leader and the personification of the company itself.

Now Heihachi, having regained his position, is making up for military power again inflaming the conflict.

Simultaneously, Heihachi announces the new King of Iron Fist Tournament where you can win the fate of the entire world.

It is a strategy to defeat his son Kazuya Mishima, who holds the reins of the G Corporation from behind the scenes.

The Mishima clan internal feud reached a new climax involving the whole world and turns to this last act.

New Arcade Business Model for Tekken 7 Fated Retribution - Many More Character Additions Planned

Big news came out of the Kelot Cup tournament from the Tekken 7 Fated Retribution producer Nakatsu. First off, the arcade version of Tekken 7 Fated Retribution will be planning on using a new arcade business model when it launches. As pointed out on stream, this business model for T7FR means that the game will be getting long time support and managed long after it goes live in arcades in July. Nakatsu surprised both Hameko and Yuu on the mic when he said that alongside new characters Akuma and Nina, 'Many More' characters are currently planned on being added for Tekken 7 Fated Retribution. Next bit of news to come from the stream - In mid June, Bandai Namco is organizing an official Tekken 7 Fated Retribution event for the upcoming launch of the title in July.

http://www.avoidingthepuddle.com/storag ... 5290257036

Here in the city of Melbourne, Australia, the community has come together to purchase their own set of Tekken 7 cabs for everyone to play on. The 2 set of cabinet costed roughly $20,000 AUD to get down here and that's not including further ongoing payments for Bandai Namco's fee to keep it running making this a pretty extraodinary feat for everyone involved. For those of you in the city, the cabinets are now up and running and a streaming station is set-up beside it so you can play and record Tekken 7 footage. The pricing for the machines to play is $2 AUD to start and then every continue from there being $1 AUD. The shop is open from 10 AM until late every day of the week so come on down if you get the chance!

Jin's Shop Address ≫ 422 Bourke Street, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000.

From Rame:

A year ago, the Melbourne Tekken scene was I'm a bit of turmoil. Tekken 7 was being released on Arcades but, as everyone soon came to find out, we were not getting it. For anyone that knows the Australian Tekken scene, you'll know that Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane get every rendition of Tekken within a month of international release.

A few months later, we were presented with an idea. Why not buy our own Tekken machine? This would solve the issue of not getting future Tekken games. But where would we put it? Jin from the Tekken community stepped up and provided us with a place to house it. Before we could even ask about raising the money between the community, Dion Xu stepped forward and donated half the money required to purchase the machine. $10,000 to be exact. His reason? He wanted to help the community that he is apart of. Jin provided the other half and the ball began to roll.

With help from the whole community, whether it was getting prices, phoning companies, etc, today that dream has become a reality.

Thank you to all those involved.
