Entry: $10 ($5 in the pot and $5 going towards your bonus game credits)
Every entrant will receive 5 game credits for T7 to be used up until the next tournament date. So essentially $5 to be used at your liking… This is to try and entice more people to join in the fun and so everyone gets something for their entry fee!
Prize pool, usual split %, but 3rd can either take the cash or get extra bonus credits (depending on the entry). For example, if 3rd will get $20, you can choose between $20 or 30 game credits to use prior to the next tournament.
The Western Australia Tekken Community will be hosting a tournament this Saturday at Game City in Perth Underground. The formula will be emulating that of the Korean Tekken Crash series, a 3 vs 3, double elimination bracket. The full details are as follows:
Date: Saturday, October 22nd Time: 3:00pm Location: Shop TR2/3, Raine Square Shopping Centre, 300 Murray Street, Perth
Another great AUFGC focused video has surfaced over the last couple of days, this time highlighting not just OHN14 but Australian Tekken as a whole. The Tekken community is one of the most notoriously hype scenes in Australia and Bukk has put together a fantastic montage of the many faces and events the Tekken community has been a part of over the last 5 years. Check it out below.
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.
Australia’s impressive contingent at Evolution 2016 included several enthusiastic Tekken 7 players. Over on the Australia Tekken Community Facebook group member Daniel Ng has compiled a list of Twitch archive links for key Australian player Tekken 7 matches at Evo. These include matches from the official tournament pool, some exhibition matches and a few casual games.
There were a couple of tournaments that took place over the first weekend of July. In Melbourne the local Tekken community ran their first arcade tournament for Tekken 7. Victory went to Jonathon Garofalo. Check out the results thread on Facebook for match videos and photos from the tournament, a couple of which are provided below.

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
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
There’s a new location in Melbourne this week with a Tekken 7 cabinet. Community member and stream expert Baraa has announced that “Jin’s shop” on Bourke St now has a pair of Tekken 7 cabinets complete with direct-capture for recording matches. The Melbourne Tekken community has worked hard to get this setup together.
If you’re looking to get into the game ahead of its highly anticipated console release, or need to train up for the OzHadou Nationals in August this venue is worth supporting.
Here is a recap of all the Tekken 7 locations in Australia that we currently known about. If you know about a Tekken 7 location please contact us and we’ll add it to our list.
