Yamasa Pachi-slot Tekken 3rd Teaser PV

Tekken is getting a new Pachi-slot machine. Again. This time it's based on more of the content you see in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and thankfully it doesn't introduce any new and weird character designs like Mecha-Heihachi, Goblin Ogre or that Devil Kazuya. Mainly because people wouldn't stop begging for them on twitter to Harada. The Pachi-slot machine is set for release on the 6th of July while there is to be a large exhibition for it next month on the 21st of May. Japanese title of the thing is: '山佐 パチスロ 鉄拳3rd' if you're interested and the teaser PV is courtesy of pipocom1's YouTube channel.

TV E-Sports MAX Episode Snippet Featuring Nobi

In Namco Sugamo, newer players or customers that show up to the arcade may be daunted by the level of skill the average player over there has and may have trouble keeping up when playing against them. As such, the arcade has officially recognized and employed Japan's top player Nobi (or 'Instructor-san' as some of the players call him) to help teach players how to play the game and give advice on how they can improve and get better. If you have the credits to play on a side-by-side TTT2 cabinet and Nobi has the time, it may be a much wiser investment then continually losing to a really good player. To better illustrate all this, the E-Sports MAX TV show that currently airs over on the Tokyo MX TV channel in Japan filmed a small episode featuring Nobi showing the TV show's co-host the ropes of the game. The snippet of the episode is now viewable on TOKYO MX's YouTube channel.

Backdash Cancelling to be made easier in future Tekken Games

Probably the most blunt answer that you can get out of this topic. No specifics on how this will be achieved but it's something to look forward to in future Tekken games.

TEKKEN MURA - New Tekken Resource Ran By Help Me

TEKKEN MURA or 'Tekken Village' as it is in English is a new website dedicated to Tekken that is being run by Help Me. Help Me knows quite a bit of Japanese so it seems that this is an attempt to bring news on the Korean Tekken scene to the Japanese one and vice versa. The site just recently opened so it's not that full of features but you can see some early plans like a regular 'Nin Column,' player interviews, frame data pages, Live Tekken streams alert, character discussion pages and some more coming soon. Check back on it (If you can read it) in the future for some news and updates.

Age of Renowned Tekken Players Compiled By Kuro Kuro

Since you can find out so much information on Tekken players through their Facebook/Twitter/Zexi pages, Kuro Kuro recently decided to compile an age list of notable players. It's predominately a Japanese players list so you might not know most of the names on this list but there's some notable players outside of Japan that you might know of. The list is structured around fiscal years but it easily shows you how old everyone is. No famous female players included in this list of course, that stuff is top secret.
