It took a while but Bandai Namco have just uploaded the official 1080p/60fps versions of the latest trailers to come out of the 20th Anniversary event that went down this past weekend in Japan. The trailers introduce newcomer: Lucky Chloe to the series while the 2nd trailer shows off new stages, costumes and overall improvements to Tekken 7. You can watch the footage in full HD below.
The TEKKEN franchise is celebrating it's 20th Anniversary this month and Bandai Namco has announced that they're holding a 'Thanksgiving' event for all fans of the series to celebrate. The niconico broadcast of this event will feature the latest Tekken game: TEKKEN 7 with a 'Exhibition Tournament' featuring some 'world champions' of the series. Of course, the latest news on TEKKEN 7 will be revealed in the event as well as have special guests Katsuhiro Harada and Yuriko Tiger in the broadcast. There are to be more special guests in the event but they haven't yet been announced. The niconico stream of this event will occur on the 7th of December, 2014 and run from 12:30 PM until 6:00 PM Japan time.
At four different arcades and will go on for this weekend(22nd-23rd November 2014). While it looks like the build they're using at this location test is the same one as the one used last month, we'll still cover it and try to find any valuable information. In the mean time leave your comments below.
Fresh off the twitters, Bandai Namco has uploaded a new introduction trailer for the arcade release of Tekken 7 but if you've already been closely following the news there's not much new in it. It does provide a good direct feed look at the game which may or may not have further graphical improvements down the line. Additionally, the official Tekken website updated with details on the next round of location testing in Japan from the 22nd of November to the 23rd of November this year. No word on a stream for those location tests but it's likely we'll see a newer build of the game through cell phone vids from the players at the arcades. I've added the details below.
UPDATE: The event is now over and top 8 results have now been added!
MASTERCUP is Japan's largest annual TEKKEN tournament and for this year, there's a huuuuuuuuge amount of entrants. 176 teams of 5 (Totaling 880 players!) will be battling it out in a 5on5 elimination tournament in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 this Sunday in Japan. The tournament gathers some of the best players that Japan has to offer as well as invites renowned Korean players to battle it out and see who comes out on top. Additionally, the Tekken development team is supporting this tournament with Katsuhiro Harada and Michael Murray attending so there's also the possibility on seeing some form of new Tekken 7 related news or announcement. MASTERCUP.7 this year will be streamed on Twitch.tv featuring MarkMan doing commentary for us baka gaijins and Hameko/Genya doing commentary for the Japanese stream.

If you remembered earlier, there was to be several business meetings this week inside Bandai Namco regarding upcoming arcade games set for release. I've just received early reports from the event that the arcade release of Tekken 7 is set for release on February 2015 next year. This is presumably info pertaining to the Japanese release of the game but if there's confirmation of Tekken 7 in other regions, it should be coming in the near future. Sources below.
