ohn14_daigo_book

In addition to competing at OzHadou Nationals 14, legendary Japanese fighting game champion Daigo Umehara has provided us with approximately 100 copies of the English translation of his book The Will to Keep Winning. This translated printing was first available to purchase at Evolution 2016 so for most Australians OHN14 will be a rare chance to pick up a physical copy of Daigo’s first book.

Sales will be strictly limited to one book per pass holder and will be sold at OHN14 on Friday and Saturday only. The price will be finalised by the Friday of OHN14.

After the jump we have an introduction to the book courtesy of Daigo.

[Syd] OHN14 – Important Tekken 7 Rules Update

ohn14_t7

As we’ve highlighted previously, since Tekken 7 won’t be released on consoles or PC until early 2017, we are only able to include Tekken 7 in the official line-up for OHN14 thanks to generous support from Bandai Namco Australia. They’ll be bringing two head-to-head tournament stations for Tekken 7 using arcade hardware plus an additional setup featuring the Fated Retribution update for casual play.

Since the Tekken 7 tournament stations rely on arcade hardware we are unable allow players to BYO controllers for the Tekken 7 tournament. Efforts were made to relax this constraint however we were recently informed this could not be achieved. Instead all competitors must play their Tekken 7 matches using one of the Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai arcade sticks provided by Bandai Namco.

The official tournament rules have been updated to reflect this controller constraint for Tekken 7. We apologise for the lateness of this announcement and for any adverse impact it may have on competitors expecting to play in the Tekken 7 tournament using a game pad.

Registration for OHN14 closes on Monday August 22nd and right now we’re 62 passes away from our 600 pass cap. Please register before we run of time or passes to avoid missing out.
