Combo Breaker 2017 - Tekken 7 Recap and Archives

Photo: @tempusrobRelive the hype and excitement from Tekken 7 at this year's Combo Breaker tournament event. Combo Breaker had 180 entrants for Tekken 7 with fierce competition coming together to see who would come out on top. There was exciting moments throughout the event like the the big upsets during pools and the matches during Top 8 culminating in a big Tekken spectacle. Thanks to the fast work of the streaming crew and Bandai Namco, YouTube archives for Top 8 of Tekken 7 are now available to watch if you weren't able to be there in person or catch the live stream. Aris is back from his trip to Combo Breaker and a recap video with his thoughts and experiences from the event is now also up. If you happen to be new around here, this event will hopefully be a good welcome to the world of competitive Tekken and hope to see you around come this June 2nd.

The culmination of all the Tekken USA Tour events is taking place during this week in the city of San Francisco.

Tekken Talk #2 - Markman & Rip with Special Guests Harada & Michael Murray

Tekken Talk Episode 2 with special guests Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray from the Tekken team is now up on YouTube. Lots of interesting topics discussed such as the PC version of Tekken 7, Tekken X Street Fighter, Tekken Ball, post launch support, console/PC cross play and a bunch more. I'm going to throw this out there and say I'm all for post launch support for Tekken as it keeps things fresh and exciting and makes people come back for new content. Whether it is small things like new costumes & customizations or maybe something big like a game expansion that adds more Street Fighter characters turning it into Tekken X Street Fighter. (Don't go wild with that idea please internet, I'm not saying they're going to do that haha.) And of course, hearing that Harada himself is a big PC gamer and that all features that you can come to expect from a standard PC game are to be expected is very reassuring news for the PC version in comparison to certain other games with poor quality PC ports in recent times. This is getting quite lengthy so I'll stop here but you can catch the whole interview over on Bandai Namco's Fight channel:
