GamerBee, Ryan Hart, and HooDaMan share their greatest losses, victories, favorite games, and more in the Pro Tour's latest spotlights

Capcom Fighters returns with another great set of Pro Tour player spotlights for your viewing pleasure. This time around, AVM|GamerBee, DIG|Ryan Hart, and pH|Hoodaman sit down to talk about their greatest losses, favorite Capcom fighting games, and more.

In GamerBee's video he recalls his greatest loss -- his defeat at the hand of Infiltration during the EVO 2012 Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 grand finals. "I didn't expect Infiltration to be so dominating," GamerBee said. "He did everything right."

On the other side of the coin, HooDaMan reveals that beating EG|Justin Wong in a FT5 online set was his greatest victory, and despite how great Ryan Hart is in the SF4 series, he still feel Street Fighter 3 Third Strike is his favorite game.

Catch all that and more in the videos below.

Tekken 7 tentatively set for release in Japanese arcades February 2015; new batch of customization screenshots

Bandai Namco Games held an amusement games machine business event for members of the trade and Japanese media at its Shinagawa, Tokyo headquarters earlier today.

At the event, Bandai Namco not only showed off a number of new titles -- such as Time Crisis 5 and Pocket Monster Battle Nine (which I am extremely relieved is not Pokken Tournament) -- but also revealed tentative pricing and release schedule details for Tekken 7 to arcade operators.

Check out the new Tekken 7 screenshots, along with arcade version release and pricing details below.

Update: Harada says Tekken 7 budget is not lower than past years; team is creating a character to 'battle against Devil'

Updated: Earlier today, we reported on a summary of Harada's Tekken 7 location test discussion that stated the game's budget is 1/4 that of Tekken 5's.

The Tekken producer has since clarified on Twitter that this is actually not the case, and that development costs are cheaper than recent years. You can read his full tweet here.

We have reached out to Harada for more information.

Earlier: Harada says that the team is currently creating a new character to "battle against Devil" in Tekken 7.

In the original announcement trailer, we see a quick glimpse of Kazuya transforming into his devil form, so whether this means we'll see him as a playable character, the final boss of the game, or both is still yet to be determined. With Tekken 7's heavy focus on the Mishima clan -- the conclusion to the Mishima saga, to be exact -- it'll be interesting to see what the Tekken team has in mind for Devil and the character designed to take him on.

Hit the jump to check out more notable details from the Tekken 7 stream.

Tekken 7 releases a myriad of customization options for 18 different characters

Here we find a whole slew of costume accessories for some of the combatants in the upcoming Tekken 7. These customization items were just recently revealed and are applicable to the following characters:

Claudio, Katarina, Kazuya, Heihachi, Lars, Alisa, Asuka, Lili, Xiaoyu, Feng, Paul, Law, Steve, Leo, Hworang, King, Dragunov and Brian.

It seems as though many of the accessories, such as the wings and the glasses, can be applied to multiple different characters. This leads us to question if any accessories are character specific or if they will all be up for grabs for any character to dress up with.

Tekken 7 alpha location tests - official live stream from Tokyo (Sugamo), Osaka (Nipponbashi)

You've seen all of the Kazuya, Leo, Asuka and Paul's Rage Arts super moves. Now tune in to Bandai Namco's official Tekken 7 location test live stream for your chance to watch the remaining playable characters' Rage Arts moves in action.

Today the official live stream is coming to us from Nipponbashi in Osaka, and tomorrow's stream will be from the Sugamo branch of Namco's arcade chain in Tokyo.

Do note that Tekken series director Katsuhiro Harada has said that the location test build is only running at 60% graphical prowess, due to character lighting, skin shader and other effects not yet being implemented. All gameplay elements within the game are also subject to be tweaked and changed, depending on player feedback.

Rage Arts in Tekken 7 are not fully invincible, can be beaten by low attacks - location test highlights montage from Level Up Your Game

One of the common misconceptions that fighting game fans have conceived, upon seeing the new Rage Arts super moves in motion from the Tekken 7 alpha location test is that it's a fully invincible attack that you can simply throw out to counter your opponent's move for big damage.

That couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, as this Tekken 7 highlights montage from the folks over at Level Up Your Game shows, Rage Arts behave like Power Crush attacks in Tekken 7. That is, it is a super armored move (will take damage from incoming attacks), and that it can be beaten by low attacks.

You'll see that in two instances in the highlights montage below. Also featured in this montage are Xiaoyu and Steve's Rage Arts supers, which were not included in the previous compilation we posted.

For more Tekken 7 location test action, make sure to tune in to the official stream later today, starting at around 8.30PM PST.

Tekken 7 Rage Arts compilation video ft. Lili, Alisa, Claudio, Katarina, Heihachi, King, Lars and more

Thanks to Bandai Namco's official Tekken 7 alpha location tests live stream earlier today, series fans and casual fighting game fans alike were able to catch a glimpse of the Rage Arts super moves for most of the playable roster currently featured at the tests.

If you weren't able to catch the stream earlier today (the stream will begin again tomorrow at 8.30PM PST over here), or just didn't want to see through a few hours of the stream just to see the new Rage Arts moves in motion, Korean YouTube user ham3834 has taken the liberty of capturing those moments from the stream, and editing them all together into the compilation video you see below.

Although the compilation does not feature every single character currently playable at the tests, the video does contain a good number of them -- 12 in all: Heihachi, Katarina, Feng, Asuka, Alisa, King, Lars, Lili, Claudio, Dragunov, Leo and Kazuya.

Asuka & Paul's 'Rage Arts' supers; high-quality Tekken 7 footage ft. Claudio, Katarina, Xiaoyu, Dragunov, Leo, Steve, Kazuya, Bryan and more

Kazuya and Leo's Rage Arts super moves weren't the only ones captured on video earlier today. Looking over all of the shakycam videos that Tekken 7 location test attendees have posted on YouTube today, we noticed that Asuka's and Paul's supers were also documented in all of the early footage:

Other than Asuka and Paul's Rage Arts moves, the early footage also shows Tekken 7's new characters Claudio and Katarina in action, along with many of the playable roster at the location tests. And unlike our previous post, all of that footage is fairly high-quality -- we've picked out the best videos we could find, this time.

Check them out below, along with a Tekken 7 changes overview vid from Level Up Your Game's Rip.

Today was the first day of the Tekken 7 location tests in Japan. Although the official location test live streams will only start from from later tonight at 8.30PM (PST time), a few of the location test participants have been capturing videos of the game on their smartphones to share with the rest of the world.

Thanks to their efforts (as well as those of you who shared them with us), we get to take a good look of what Leo and Kazuya's "Rage Arts" super moves are like in the game.

For those of you unfamiliar with Rage Arts, it's one of the two new elements that are being introduced in Tekken 7. Unlike the Rage system in Tekken 6 and TTT2, when your character's life is whittled down to a certain amount, Tekken 7's Rage system will not confer speed or damage boosts, but will instead give you access to a Rage Arts super move that you can combo into for massive damage.

The other new mechanic introduced in Tekken 7 is Power Crush, which you'll get to see in two 30-minute long videos that Twitcast user Eleodica shot from the location tests, embedded below.

Updated: Tekken 7 gameplay footage; images show new fighter Claudio, character select screen, Katarina

Updated: Gameplay footage of Tekken 7 has just hit YouTube. Check it out after the jump.

The first-ever Tekken 7 location tests are currently being held in Japan, and although the live streams won't be going up until tomorrow, some lucky players are already getting their hands on it.

Luckily, FlyingWonkey of Avoiding The Puddle is currently tweeting out information about Bandai Namco's upcoming fighter.

Tonight we have a special treat, as Wonkey posted photos of Tekken 7's character select screen showing Katarina's official artwork. Additionally, we get to see a screenshot of an actual match, making these images the first real look at the new Tekken title.

Another new fighter has also entered the fray. A male fighter named Claudio can be seen in the official PDF detailing new mechanics that was released earlier today. Below you will find scans of the PDF showing move lists, and the photos showing the character select screen and gameplay.
