Tekken 7 Tournament

Many gathered today for the Tekken 7 tournament, with several pro players and spectators on hand. The tournament is co-organized by Malaysia Tekken Society, Infinite Carnage and Guilty Gears Malaysia.

Fighting scene in general it’s blooming so expect it to bring in new players. I’m hoping of one day that it will become even more prominent here in Malaysia. Hopefully there would be more tournaments like this in the future to promote the fighting scene. Kamarul Omar , founder of the Malaysia Tekken Society.

The shop’s founders also see it as a chance to promote competitive play and reach out to the community.

At first, I didn’t know the existence of the fighting community. I was surprised at how big the community is. I even thought that fighting games are mostly for casuals, but knowing that there are professionals who even reach out to the international stage. I hope with events like this, one day it will reach out to bigger heights in terms of participants and players. One can hope that it can be big or even bigger than the FIFA community. Mohd Rezwan, Co-Founder of Hitbox Gaming
