UPDATE: unfortunately this event has been cancelled, though it might be rescheduled for a later date. Please refer to this Facebook post for details.

Melbourne isn’t the only city vying for national supremacy in Tekken 7 at the OzHadou Nationals 14. With Fated Retribution about to arrive in arcades, the fine folks at Bandai Namco ANZ have invited OzHadou community manager FaYd to run a “farewell” arcade tournament for Tekken 7 in their office in Redfern.

The office is being open specifically for this event, so participants are asked to respect the staff and premises while attending. Thanks to Steve from Bandai Namco for providing the Sydney Tekken community with this great opportunity.

Date: Saturday, July 2nd
Time: Doors open at 9:00am; tournament starts at 12:00pm
Location: Bandai Namco Group, 44-78 Rosehill Street, Redfern, NSW 2016
Entry Fee: $5 for the tournament, $2 for casual play, spectators may attend for free

For all the details including tournament format and prizes, read FaYd’s announcement post on Facebook.

[Melb] T7 Tournament at Melbourne Tekken HQ – July 2nd

bnr_t7_crop

Following the recent establishment of Melbourne Tekken HQ in the CBD, the local community is ready to start running regular tournament for Tekken 7 in the lead up to the OzHadou Nationals 14.

It’s been tough for Tekken players to get quality time with Tekken 7. The arcade-only status has made accessing the game difficult in Australia where up-to-date arcades are very rare. If you’re keen to get into the game or test your abilities ahead of the much-anticipated console and PC release in early 2017, Melbourne Tekken HQ is well worth visiting.

Date: Saturday, July 2nd
Time: 12:30pm sharp – arrive early to register
Location: Level 2, 422 Bourke St, Melbourne, VIC 3006
Entry Fee: $10 – $5 for the tournament pot and $5 of game credits
