Evo 2015’s Tekken 7 tournament just got even more intense thanks to developer Bandai Namco, who will be providing a $30,000 boost to the game’s prize pool. Though currently exclusive to arcades, this should give participants outside of Japan and South Korea the added push they need to study up on the game’s characters, mechanics, and more.
With this announcement, Evo 2015’s pot bonuses now add up to $200,000 across all titles thanks to similar contributions to Ultra Street Fighter IV, Mortal Kombat X, Killer Instinct, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, and Persona 4 Arena Ultimax from their respective developers.
Additionally, all players who are currently registered to compete in Tekken 7 will receive an exclusive shirt (pictured below) emblazoned with franchise veteran Lili and Tekken Revolution newcomer Eliza. Sorry shirt monsters!
Evo 2015 is scheduled for July 17-19 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Further details can be found through their official website.
