Level|Up announces Wednesday Night Fight's transition to the online world

Level|Up's Wednesday Night Fights tournament series was one of the longest running and most popular weekly events in the fighting game community. Super Arcade over in Walnut, California became known as the home of WNF (and Level|Up's other weekly event, The Runback), so it came a shock to most when the heads of the competitive gaming establishment and the tournament series -- Alex Valle and Mike Watson, respectively -- decided to part ways last month.

Since the amicable split, Super Arcade's Mike Watson continued to run weekly tournaments, but what was next for Level|Up remained a mystery, until now.

Alex Valle announced this week that Wednesday Night Fights will be making its transition from local to online. What once was a SoCal based event will now transcend the location barriers and become open to competitors all over the country.

Valle and the Level|Up crew intend to run the new, online WNF series in order to help players everywhere prepare for the upcoming year's major events.

Details are scarce at this time, but we can expect more information soon.

New build of Tekken 7 is slower-paced? Korean location test shakycam footage

A newer build of Tekken 7 is on location test this weekend over in South Korea, and judging from these shakycam videos from G Manu (via AvoidingThePuddle), it looks like the Tekken Project development may have made some tweaks to the game to make it play slightly slower.

Or at least, that's the impression ATP reader Starman got from watching these videos. Looking them over, the game does look slightly slower-paced compared to the last time I've seen videos -- but I can't say for sure.

Do note, however, that even if the new build of Tekken 7 is indeed slower, the pacing of the game still falls largely in line with past installments of the franchise.

Check out the shakycam footage of the new build below, and let us know if the game does indeed look slower-paced to you when compared to an earlier build of Tekken 7.

Updated: Harada says Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe will not be coming to U.S., game designer feels he's trolling for publicity

Update: Despite more Tweets from Harada questioning Chloe's stateside release, Michael Murray, a game designer for Namco Bandai, has stated that Harada is only "trolling".

A loud minority in the gaming community has made the news and caused change for all the wrong reasons. Due to Western backlash over Tekken 7's newest character, "Lucky Chloe" might never see Western shores.

The character uniquely dons a somewhat cutesy, pink jacket that includes paws. Her headphones seem to mirror those of Super Sonico, a popular mascot character for software company Nitroplus. Despite Tekken housing some of the most wild and outlandish characters in fighting games, some fans were not afraid to take to their favorite place to sound off about how their Tekken 7 experience has been ruined by her existence: the internet.

Read below to find out Harada's response and to get his thoughts on what the stereotypical Western fan wants in their fighting game.

New Tekken 7 trailer in glorious 60fps 1080p shows adjusted hit sparks, various stages and characters

Bandai Namco Games has uploaded a brand new trailer for Tekken 7 along with the Lucky Chloe character introduction trailer previously shown at the 20 years of Tekken fanfare event to YouTube -- and both trailers are available in stunning 1080p, 60 frames-per-second.

Unlike the previous Tekken 7 trailer, this one shows a more updated build of the game with its hit sparks adjusted; they're closer to the sparks you've seen in past Tekken games now. With that said, it appears that during certain situations or when specific moves like Rage Arts land on a character, the game does increase its hit sparks output.

The new trailer also covers nearly all of the characters announced for the game so far, and shows off several stages in the new-generation fighter.

Check it out below -- and don't forget to tweak the setting in the lower-right hand corner of the video to ensure that you're watching the 1080p60 version of the trailer.

Finally, some high-level Tekken 7 matches - exhibition tournament footage from the 20 Years of Tekken fanfare event

At the 20 Years of Tekken fanfare event (which I've been referring to previously as the Tekken 20th anniversary fan appreciation event), a single-elimination first-to-3-rounds Tekken 7 tournament was held, giving us our first look at what competitive play on Bandai Namco's next-generation fighting game could be like.

For this special event, eight top Tekken players from all over the world were invited to play a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 exhibition tournament for the audience.

These eight players were then entered into the Tekken 7 tournament afterwards at the same event, and they are Nobi, Gen, Take and Tanukana (the lady you see in the image below) from Japan; Saint Saint Saint and JDCR from South Korea; AK from Philippines; and Mr. Naps from America.

Revenge match: Bandai Namco's Harada vs. Capcom's Ono revisited for Tekken's 20th anniversary

Back before Street Fighter X Tekken had been released, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono and Bandai Namco's Katsuhiro Harada filmed themselves doing a number of humorous challenges to see which side would win bragging rights.

In the end, the score came down to 7-6 in favor of Yoshinori Ono. Since these challenges had been part of a promotional presentation for Street Fighter X Tekken, it was a fitting conclusion -- but Harada never got to run it back.

Until now, that is.

Earlier today, as part of the Tekken 20th Anniversary Fan Appreciation event held in Tokyo, Harada played back a video clip depicting a new set of challenges that the two fighting game producers took on, to commemorate the occasion.

It's fairly obvious who won this time around, but the clip is still highly entertaining to watch, if only to see how much of a badass Harada really is (he managed to break a baseball bat into two with a single, clean roundhouse kick).

The Tekken crowd is getting warmed up as well so make sure you tune in and catch their finals on the stream.
