The upcoming location tests for Tekken 7 that will be held in Japanese arcades later this week will be streamed online on Niconico.
If you missed the news before, Bandai Namco are holding location tests for Tekken 7 that will allow Japanese gamers to play the game for the very first time. There will be four fighters for people to play as which presumably includes Heihachi and Kazuya Mishima. The new female character named Catalina will also be playable. It’s unknown who the other character will be.
The Tekken 7 location tests will be held at two Japanese arcades and you can watch all the action online. Japanese streaming website Niconico will be showing the action across two days this week. One of them will be held on October 3rd, while the other one will be shown on October 4th. Both streams start at 8:30pm Japanese time so you will need to calculate this in your own timezone if you want to watch it. You also have to register to Niconico before you can start watching streams.
Either way, this week will be exciting for fans looking forward to Tekken 7. We may get to see how the graphics look and if they’ve somewhat changed the gameplay too.
Update: The first gameplay footage has been taken from Tekken 7 from the location tests. There were actually a lot more than just four playable characters. The video is off-screen, so hopefully a clearer video is released in the future.
