Joe PortesMiscellaneousLeave a Comment


The Tekken 7: Fated Retribution tournament tour will continue throughout the Summer to promote the upcoming release of the game. $3,000 in cash prizes and the opportunity to play the game before release is on the table. Tekken 7 is also currently being featured by Bandai Namco at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles.

Fighting game fans are pretty excited for this game as it will see classic Street Fighter villain Akuma (or Gouki depending on what country you live in) joining the fighting roster alongside Heihachi, Michelle Chang, Kazuya, Jin, Paul Phoenix, etc. See the tournament tour dates below.
