Tekken 7 coming to US Round 1 locations in December 2016

Tekken 7 is coming home to consoles and PC in early 2017, but those players who have a Round 1 near them will get a chance to grind the game a bit earlier.

The bowling and amusement chain has listed T7 as "Coming Soon!" to its host of U.S. stores, with an approximate date of December. The site does not say what version of the game players should expect, but as Bandai Namco has not announced a North American version of Tekken 7 for arcades it seems likely that the release will be the most recent Japanese update of Fated Retribution. 

U.S. Round 1 locations are familiar with the Tekken brand, having used the BanaPassport system for the always-online Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Unlimited and hosting a location test for Tekken 7 during the summer of 2015.

KOF XIV update coming in October, future DLC plans uncertain

SNK recently held a press event at Tokyo Game Show where King of Fighters XIV Producer Yasuyuki Oda and Neo-G sat down to discuss upcoming plans for KOF and more.

According to Mad Man's Cafe, the current plans include an update to KOF XIV coming in October. This will include some system and netplay tweaks along with a balance update for the game. According to the pair, the hope was to make everything in KOF XIV seem "fun," to "make things as strong as possible and to balance them out afterwards as needed." They agree that perhaps some things like Mamahaha may be too strong, but that they do not want to change the balance of the game much at all.

Oda and NEO-G also talked about future DLC plans for KOF XIV, saying that while they have heard fan response requesting more characters, they have also heard players say that 50 characters is already enough. For now, the team is hoping to add more character costumes and work from there.

The pair also disccused the scrapped plans for Garou 2 and the possibility of another new fighter from SNK. For the full translation, head over to Mad Man's Cafe.
