It took a while but Bandai Namco have just uploaded the official 1080p/60fps YouTube version of the trailers recently revealed during the 20th Anniversary event in Japan this past weekend. I believe you'll still need Chrome to watch the footage in 60fps but If you don't want that then I guess you can try downloading the videos to your PC (JDownloader2 supports it) and watching it in full HD. Enjoy the footage from the official Tekken YouTube channel.
TEKKEN 7 Location testing in Korea is now confirmed to be occurring on the weekend after this one in Korea's Green Arcade in Seoul and the Bow arcade in Busan! Considering that Green arcade regularly streams Tekken through their twitch.tv channel, perhaps you can look forward to watching a high quality Tekken 7 stream in the future! You can see all the Korean details of the location test in the newly updated Korean Tekken-Net website here:
Big thanks goes to Taktak1893 for sharing the news with us all!
Korean gaming site Cyfren recently published an interview that they scored with Harada and there's some interesting bit of news regarding Tekken 7 in it. I can't completely reproduce the interview here so I'll just quickly paraphrase everything that was mentioned in here. You can read the full interview over on the Cyfren website.
Oh so that's what the Tekken official page meant by having 'world champions' coming in to compete for the exhibition tournament this Sunday for the 20th anniversary. Previous Global Championship's 2013 competitors Saint and JDCR from Korea and Jimmy/Mr Naps from the US are currently in Japan and played in yesterday's Ranking Battles in Namco Sugamo! You can watch how these international competitors fare up against the locals at Namco Sugamo thanks to the Sugamo niconico stream. The Ranking Battle was also followed up with a Saint VS Take deathmatch afterwards but it wasn't all completely streamed unfortunately. (The result of the deathmatch if you're curious.) Enjoy the archives which I now have up on my YouTube.
That Japanese E-sports show recently uploaded the videos of the Nobi vs Help Me match that was broadcasted on TV onto YouTube. Much faster this time around which is nice to see. I believe there's still a Gen vs Nobi episode coming up soon so expect to see that in the near future. Nobi vs Help Me videos are courtesy of the Tokyo MX YouTube channel.

The characters present in grand finals was also a huge suprise which is a testament to the variety seein in European Tekken. Archive streams embedded below.
UPDATE: Added some more notes from Kuro Kuro that he recently added as well as some staple Leo combos from Special Pikoham.
Fuck the twitter character limit. Anyway, this is just some notes from Kuro Kuro after having played Tekken 7 with Leo at the recent location tests. This all comes from his twitter so If you're interested in this sort of stuff be sure to follow him. I may get around to eventually doing a big round up post on all the Tekken 7 findings later down the line.
E-Sports MAX is a TV show currently airing in Japan through the Tokyo MX channel that covers e-sports in Japan. Over the past few months of broadcasting, there's been a few episodes which had included coverage of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 with Nobi, Yuu & Tekken Bancho participating in the show by playing matches as well as having Hameko in to do commentary. This all aired on Japanese TV before but for most of us who probably can't watch it, the Tokyo MX channel finally got to uploading the archives of these matches onto their YouTube channel. Tokyo MX's E-Sports MAX show can be caught on TV at Friday 6:30 PM.
Missed out on watching MASTERCUP.7 live this year? Don't fret as you can now catch up with the official YouTube / Twitch archives to the event that Masakarijin finally got to uploading. The YouTube archives is all from the Japanese stream while the English stream archive can be found on Twitch. Enjoy.
Fresh off the twitters, Bandai Namco has uploaded a new introduction trailer for the arcade release of Tekken 7 but if you've already been closely following the news there's not much new in it. It does provide a good direct feed look at the game which may or may not have further graphical improvements down the line. Additionally, the official Tekken website updated with details on the next round of location testing in Japan from the 22nd of November to the 23rd of November this year. No word on a stream for those location tests but it's likely we'll see a newer build of the game through cell phone vids from the players at the arcades.
The second iteration of a large Tekken tournament in South America: 'Tekken Extreme Tournament 2014' is on this weekend and it is sure to showcase the large enthusiasm for the game in the region. TXT 2014 is being held in La Paz, Bolivia and currently boasts 120 players entering from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru, the US, Venezuela, Korea and more. The international guests for this tournament are Exalted from New York and Saint from Korea. I believe Help Me was supposed to attend but unfortunately couldn't make it. Nonetheless big South American tournament this weekend and it's going to be streamed on Twitch.tv so be sure to watch it if you can.
