After 12 hours of intense play, MASTERCUP 10’s Tekken 7 team competition ended with the previous tournament’s runners-up finally claiming the title that they had almost managed to win a year ago. But what should have been a joyous occasion was tainted by controversy due to a slight technical malfunction during the…
Last weekend, a Tekken 7 player from Peru shook up this year’s Tekken World Tour standings with a big win that gives him a shot at the international finals later this year.
Sun-woong “LowHigh” Youn has been riding high since becoming Evo 2018’s Tekken 7 champion over the summer, and he entered last weekend’s tournament at The Mixup in Lyon, France as one of the favorites to win. As the event came to a close, however, he got eliminated handily by a local player.
One of the best parts about a series of bouts between two talented fighters is seeing how they adapt. When a player has to scrap it and step outside their comfort zone, that’s where contenders are made. And it’s exactly what Hoa “Anakin” Luu did in a tense Tekken 7 loser’s bracket match-up today.
Fighters in games like Tekken 7 can have a wide arsenal of attacks, with different angles, weights, and recovery time. But when you get the chance to mash that good button, ol’ reliable, you make the most of it. At least, that’s what Mr. Whooppee did when he trapped Rickstah’s Akuma in a barrage of boots to the face…
A top Tekken player was eliminated from Korea Masters today, by none other than a Panda player.
Tekken 7 pro Choi “Saint” Jin Woo is one of the top players in the game. He took second at both Evo 2017 and last year’s Tekken World Tour finals. So when fellow pro Tanukana eliminated him from Beast Arena in Hong Kong this morning, you can imagine how exciting that must have felt.
Calling this game Tekken Mobile instead of Tekken Tap Tournament is a missed opportunity, but that’s besides the point. Tapping on a touchscreen and using cards for special moves is weird.
Ten years ago, Byeong-mun “Qudans” Son was one of the strongest Tekken Tag Tournament and Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection players on the planet. But professional esports was different then, and in 2007, Qudans largely stepped away from competition as he pursued an education and satisfied South Korea’s requirement of…
Developing fighting games for PC is a risky proposition, as it often just makes it simpler for players to do silly things like form an all-Ryu team in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 or shoot themselves to the top of the Street Fighter V rankings. World-class Tekken competitor Jae-min “Knee” Bae recently found himself…
In a surprising announcement, Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis is joining Tekken 7. But fans have their own ideas regarding which characters they’d like to see in the King of Iron Fist Tournament.
First Injustice 2 gets the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and now Tekken 7 is getting Final Fantasy XV’s Prince Charming. Noctis Lucis Caelum joins the King of Iron Fist Tournament this spring.
Adnan “Blackbeard” Zaman came into Paris Games Week as the 51st player on the Tekken 7 leaderboards in Europe. But a massive run through the Tekken World Tour event this weekend took him all the way up to the top, placing him in the top three of his region just ahead of the world tour finals.
For the first time in its short history, Bandai Namco Entertainment’s official Tekken 7 world championship is set to be held outside of Japan. The Tekken World Finals, scheduled for November 12, will invite 16 of the world’s fiercest competitors to San Francisco to compete for a $50,000 prize pool.
Groom Kazuhiro and his bride Yukiko were married today at iconic Tokyo arcade Mikado. As the game center points out, the couple’s first matrimonial quarrel was Tekken 6: Bloodline Rebellion.
Tekken is coming to iOS and Android. Here’s a look at the smart device version of the iconic fighter. Currently the release date is “coming soon,” but the app has already gotten a soft launch in Canada.
Esports is big business. Yet in Japan, home to many talented players, it has yet to reach the same money-making heights as elsewhere.
When Tekken Tag Tournament came out in 2000, the game included a bowling mini-game called Tekken Bowl that became a cult favorite among Tekken players. Unlike Tekken, the bowling mini-game isn’t deep or complicated. You just choose a Tekken character and aim your bowling ball down the lane. But it’s still a…
What goes together better than Tekken and bowling? Nothing. Everything? I don’t know. Either way, fighting game characters bowling returns in Tekken 7's Ultimate Tekken Bowl DLC, coming in August.
