Tekken 7 Returns to EVO this Year in the Sunday Arena

Word came in from the Evo reveal announcement stream that Tekken 7 is returning as a main tournament game. Alongside Tekken 7, EVO will also feature Smash 4, Street Fighter V, Blazblue Cross Tag Battle, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev2, Injustice 2, Smash Melee & DragonBall FighterZ. Mr Wiz and MarkMan were able to detail the five games from this lineup being featured at the Sunday Mandalay Bay arena with Tekken 7, Guilty Gear, Melee, DragonBall & Street Fighter V but the line-up order on the day is yet to be decided. If you're a competitive Tekken player, the road to Evo this year begins now with EVO crowning the best Tekken player in the world for the year. EVO 2018 will be taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 3-5, 2018.

EVO Japan to Feature Playable Soul Calibur VI & SCV Side Tournament

The SoulCalibur & Tekken 7 Producer Motohiro Okubo made an appearance during the Eastern Japanese online qualifiers for their national Tekken 7 tournament and relayed some news for Soul Calibur fans going to EVO Japan. The first of which is that Bandai Namco are planning to have playable builds of Soul Calibur 6 for people to try out at the event and it marks the first time the public will be given access to the new game. It wasn't disclosed what build the game will be (If it is still the Mitsurugi/Sophita build for instance) but more details about the playable SC6 demo is said to be coming at a later date. Next bit of news was bringing up that Evo Japan is having a side tournament for Soul Calibur V, the previous SC game on the PS3 & X360. Registration for that side tournament are now open so sign-up if you happen to be over there. EVO Japan marks a small resurgence of Soul Calibur activity so perhaps we might even see some new news or announcements about the series made at the event. If you want to check out the VOD for the announcement segment, you can find it below. EVO Japan is taking place in Akihabara, Japan on January 26th-28th, 2018.

Jeondding's Recap of his Matches for Top 8 at Evo 2017

Top Korean Eddy player Jeondding competed at Evo this year and put up some incredibly close games with the now Evo champion JDCR. Now that Jeondding has settled back home, he recently got on his Twitch stream to do a quick recap of his experience and matches for Tekken 7's Top 8. Since he did this live in Korean and on his stream, we have to thank dommynick on Neogaf for taking the time to breakdown the main bits and translate them into English for us. There's some great insight in here that goes into what a foreign player has to prepare for when transitioning from the arcade Tekken experience to the console tournament setting so it makes for an interesting read if you're interested in what was going through Jeondding's mind while he was playing. You can read the translation/breakdown of Jeondding's stream over on Neogaf's Tekken 7 thread.
