Tekken 7 is just under two months away from arriving on consoles, but plans to nurture its competitive scene are still being put into action.
Bandai Namco’s UK branch has partnered with Electronic Sports Gaming, or ESL for short, to present the Tekken 7 UK Championship! Throughout April and May, major cities in the United Kingdom and Ireland will be hosting qualifiers at designated events. The top three players from each event, in addition to one wild card, will be invited to the finals on the ESL arena at the MCM London Comic Con!
These qualifiers will take place at the following events:
- Hypespotting, April 15-16, 2017 – Glasgow
- Dublin Qualifier, April 22, 2017 – Dublin
- MBAGaming, April 29, 2017 – Manchester
- Electronic Dojo, May 6, 2017 – Birmingham
- NGI Events, May 14, 2017 – London
How will the sixteenth player be decided? Details have yet to be released, but we will update you when we learn more. In the meantime, follow their pages to get ready for the next battle!
Also, check out this short gameplay clip featuring Lars and Shaheen in a Tekken 7 match. If you were considering maining each of these characters, perhaps this will help you to make a decision.
