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.

SCLS - Viewer Vote For Next Character

For those who didn't watch the '876 Minute' broadcast by Bandai Namco on niconico that I detailed earlier, you didn't really miss much. Soul Calibur's current lead producer Masaaki Hoshino gets on the broadcast at around the 10 hour mark and talks about his games and play a couple round of Soul Calibur 2 HD with the broadcast hosts. The most notable thing of course was holding a poll during the niconico stream that viewers can vote for which characters they would like to see in Soul Calibur Lost Swords. The vote had the options of 4 characters - Amy, Cassandra, Seong Mina and Rock. In the short period that the poll was open, viewers went with Amy to win the poll with 39.7% of the votes. I wouldn't worry too much if the character you wanted to see added to that game wasn't voted for, all these characters were up for consideration and may show up in the title eventually.

SPECIAL HAMMERs CUP 2 - MASTERCUP S1 Climax 2014

SPECIAL HAMMERs CUP 2 is the next Japanese tournament that MASTERCUP is going to run this year and it will be another 3on3 tournament with a team entry limit set to 42 teams (126 total players.) It was announced a bit before the top 8 at MATADOR CUP 5 and I now have more details about it from the official website. It's going to be held in a Namco arcade 'Hakata Bus Terminal store' which is in Fukuoka, Japan during Japan's Golden Week holiday period. The tournament is named after the famed Japanese Dragunov/Lee player 'Special Hammers' from Fukuoka and is going to be run similiar to the Mastercup J1 Climax from last year. This tournament as well as an upcoming MASTERCUP tournament in west Japan (No date yet) and of course MASTERCUP.7 in November this year is expected to be a good send off for the game just before Tekken's 20th anniversary in December.
