Tekken 6 Tourney in Tokyo, yo

Posted by: Nathan at 1/29/2010 6:04 PM
Namco Bandai is hosting a Tekken 6 Global Championship Finale this March in the land of the rising sun. The top 16 of the world's best Tekken 6 players will be stuffed in a room at the Tokyo International Forum Hall on March 7th. They will be told that only one can survive, a sword will be tossed in the room, and then the door will be locked and barred. I'm just kidding. The competition will have much less bloodshed but won't be any less cut throat as the top 16 compete on their respective platform of choice (Xbox 360, PS3) and become the king, or queen, of fighters. BTW the top prize is thousands of dollars. For the contestants' sake let's hope that's in US dollars and not yen.
