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.

 

On hand during the BAM9 weekend event will be members of the Sydney and Melbourne TEKKEN communities to help newcomers get accustomed with TEKKEN 7’s mechanics and characters, with hands on demonstrations and Tutorials.
