Bandai Namco has announced that Tekken 7 will be on show at BAM9, the fighting show that is being held in Melbourne at the Exhibition Center from May 12 - 14. As the game is set to release on June 9, this is the last chance for players to go hands on with the game, before its release.
Bandai Namco Entertainment has come together with Couchwarriors to sponsor the event and is exhibiting 46 Tekken 7 setups, including a range of PS4 and PC, to enable as much free play and competition fun as possible across the three day event.
New to BAM9 is the option of FREE entry for ‘casual’ players of TEKKEN 7 and entrants to the ‘Newcomers’ competition on Friday evening. “With TEKKEN 7 releasing in under a month’s time, we are extremely happy to be involved in E-Sports at BAM 9 with Couchwarriors to enable consumers to play TEKKEN 7 free of charge and to experience E-sports as the growing phenomenon it is in Australia”, says Stephen O’Leary, Product Manager and Bandai Namco Entertainment.
"The CouchWarriors team is exceptionally happy to have the support of Bandai Namco to help showcase TEKKEN 7 in its final build weeks before release. As part of a huge community effort that will make BAM9 one of the biggest E-sports events of the year, for the whole fighting game scene it is fantastic to see the mighty TEKKEN return in such strong fashion. From local heroes to international Tekken legends SAINT and JDCR who are coming to the event, this will be an epic way to kick off the next era of TEKKEN!” says Daniel Chlebowczyk of the CouchWarriors Organising Committee.a
