And here is our major July 7 Tekken 7 announcement promised to us by Bandai Namco. The Japanese publisher has confirmed that its arcade fighting game will be localized for foreign shores! Tekken has always proven to be an international franchise, so it was only a matter of time really. Location tests will begin this month in the following locations:

Dave and Buster’s New York
234 W. 42nd St., 3rd Floor New York, NY 10036

Dave and Buster’s Dallas
9450 North Central Expressway Dallas, TX 75231

Dave and Buster’s Milpitas
940 Great Mall Dr. Milpitas, CA 95035

Round One Puente Hills Mall
1600 S.Azusa Ave, Suite 285 City of Industry, CA 91748

Round One South Center Mall
2351 South Center Mall Tukwila, WA 98188

Round One Stratford Mall
152 Stratford Square Bloomingdale, IL 60191

In addition to the location tests, Bandai Namco has also announced the first official Tekken 7 tournament, “King of Iron Fist Tournament 2015.” $80,000 in prizes could be yours.

No exact date on the location tests or full arcade release in North America, but keep an eye out for them if you live in those areas. And again, we have not yet been given any details on the home console versions.
