For the first time in his Tekken career, Taisei will finally make his way overseas to compete on the world stage for Tekken and hopefully leave his mark on the world.

MASTERCUP.9 Set to Take Place at Tokyo Big Sight TFT Hall


The destination has been set for MASTERCUP.9, the large scale Japanese 5on5 Tekken tournament set to go down on November 25th. The new venue announced for the tournament will be at Tokyo Big Sight's TFT (Tokyo Fashion Town) Hall. You might remember that venue as the place where Namco ran the TKOIFT 2015 Tokyo Qualifier, or the place that had Toushinsai 2016. This marks a big upgrade from the usual tournament venue being Leisure land in Palette town which was way too small of a venue to house a large number of entrants and had a smoking area right next to the play area. It's a new game, new tournament and new venue. For more news and info on the MASTERCUP tournaments, you can check the official website for more news to come in the future.

This Year's MASTERCUP.9 Tournament Shifts Date to November 25


Word came in on an update notice for the Tekken 7 MASTERCUP.9 tournament that is scheduled to take place later this year. During the MORIBE CUP event, the MASTERCUP tournament head honcho Masakarijin; appeared on stage to present the news that this year's MASTERCUP.9 event has now moved dates from the previously announced date of November 4 to the 25th of November (Saturday). Apologies for the delay in relaying this news but we hope anyone that was already planning on attending MASTERCUP.9 prepare in advance for the event and the shift in dates. MASTERCUP.9 is expected to be another monolithic Japanese Tekken event with Tekken 7 that'll celebrate 10 years of MASTERCUP tournaments in the region so it is definitely an event not to miss out on. Hopefully for this year we can see more international presence, team USA where you at!?
