Tekken 7 - Arcade Online Update H06 Complete Changelist

UPDATE: Michael Murray just informed us that this will be the version used at Evo 2015!

Tekken 7 is getting yet another Arcade online update titled 'H06' today in Japanese and Korean arcades and this again brings a new wave of character balancing to the game. The main changes listed in this version was that 16th DAN (Vanquisher I think?) and upwards ranking system was adjusted and that floor break combo damage was changed but the character balance changes are what's really most interesting. Jack-7 of course got a whole slew of adjustments and is probably fair this time around. I'm not 100% sure but this version of the game will probably be the version played at EVO 2015 this month. Provided something doesn't go horribly wrong. H06 complete notes in Japanese can be found here and I've translated it all below it.

It ran a similar format to Strong Style where everyone competed in group stages of FT2 bouts before being seeded in 32 bracket FT3 double elimination bracket. The tournament did a great job showcasing European tekken players with a variety of characters. Can these results be a hint at what to expect for Ultimate Tournament XVI?

Namco announce $30k Bonus Pot to Tekken 7 @ EVO2K15 + Lili/Eliza T-Shirt

Today, Namco announced $30,000 a bonus pot for Tekken 7 at EVO along with T-shirts with an artwork of Lili and Eliza by the same artist as the Devil Asuka design in last year's EVO shirt. It's nice of Namco to support T7, but it is blatantly unfair to give such a reward to a competition where 97% of the competitors don't have a chance against the Japanese who've had months of experience.
