Bandai Namco has partnered with Twitch and Playbook, the premier local gaming organizer of console gaming events for REV Major Philippines, which will feature seven different fighting game tournaments, including a Tekken 7 tournament for the TEKKEN World Tour. The event will take place on July 8 to 9, 2017 at the Power Mac Center Spotlight in Circuit, Makati.
The TEKKEN World Tour is an international tournament series currently on-going in three different regions across the globe (Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific). By competing in their respective region’s events, players get a chance to earn ranking points which will then be tallied in the regional leaderboards. The top 5 players from each region will be joining the EVO 2017 Tekken 7 champion in the grand finals which will be held in the US later this year.
In the Asia-Pacific region, top players have already joined REV Major Philippines including Nobi, Yuu, and Take from Japan, Echo Fox players JDCR and Saint from South Korea, and our very own Alexandre “AK” Laverez and Andrei “Doujin” Albar.
“We are all very excited for REV Major Philippines and with this event, 2017 is shaping up to be a banner year for the Philippines fighting game community. Being chosen by Bandai Namco as a venue for their master event is an honor and it makes us feel incredibly happy that they now acknowledge the huge Tekken community of our country. The world got to see the talent that our players have in the recent Rage Art event, and now we are proud to show the world more of it in REV Major Philippines.” – Richard Brojan, CEO and owner of PlayBook.
Apart from Tekken 7, REV Major Philippines will also feature tournaments for Street Fighter V, Injustice 2, Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator 2, King of Fighters XIV, Super Smash Bros 4 for Wii U, and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
