Tekken 7 is about to be launched for consoles and PC in the Philippines! And to celebrate the launch this June, Bandai Namco has partnered with Team Spooky for the upcoming RAGE ART Tekken 7 launch event, to be held on June 3 at Playbook Circuit Makati.
Bandai Namco, developer and publisher of the blockbuster video game franchise Tekken has partnered with renowned global eSports brand TEAM SPOOKY to bring RAGE ART, the Philippines largest Tekken 7 launch event. The event will be taking place at Playbook Circuit Makati on June 3, 2017 and has a 25,000 php prize pool thanks to XSplit, Player.me and Challonge.
Philippines is one of the most underrated regions for Tekken, despite players such as young Alexandre “AK” Laverez reaching Top 8 in international eSports tournaments such as King of Iron Fist 2013 and King of Iron Fist 2016. With RAGE ART, TEAM SPOOKY aims to shine a light on a local fighting game community that is mostly unknown to the rest of the world.
“Many times I have been called upon by various regions all over the world who love fighting games, small and large. I have worked tirelessly to promote their skill, passion, and brotherhood. Upon my arrival to the Philippines I found myself observing many great players who fight with the strongest passion, for prize pools so small that I can clearly see they fought only for their pride. I was compelled to put my skills to use once again, as I desire to learn their stories while showing what they can do to the rest of the world. With Rage Art, I hope that you too will come to love Philippines Tekken, and that it will be the beginning of a new age of eSports here” says Victor Fontanez founder of Team Sp00ky.
