2015: Year of the First Tekken Tournament

What could be better than a new Tekken installment? A Tekken tournament will take place at the end of this year. Bandai Namco has announced brief details on the tournament, but enthusiasts know it will be called “The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2015” and a cash prize of 10 million yen – which translates to a little over $80,000 USD – will be awarded to the winner. Throughout the fall, hopeful participants can play at the qualifiers in both Osaka and Tokyo in hopes of earning a spot in the tournament. Also, the winners of the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) which takes place on July 17th to 19th will earn an entry into the Tekken tournament in late 2015.
