The Tekken series has a history of amazing competitions over the years. While we have yet to see any announcement of a revival of Tekken Crash in Korea, one of the largest Tekken events in the world, another team-based Tekken event is returning nonetheless.
Mark “Markman” Julio just passed along the announcement of Mastercup 9, Japan’s most prestigious Tekken event. A team tournament much like Korea’s Crash events, as well as Mattsun’s X-EST tournament for Super Street Fighter II Turbo, this will shape up to be a massive event.
While dates are not yet set in stone, we should be expecting amazing matches at this event, as well as the potential for a dangerous Team USA with Tekken 7 releasing on consoles soon.
The biggest day of TEKKEN competition in the world! MASTERCUP returns with the 9th iteration in 2017! I'm definitely going! Team USA!? https://t.co/J2OHwvuBpA
