King announced for Tekken Mobile

After its initial announcement in August, Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has released a new character reveal trailer for the mobile version of Tekken, revealing that King will be joining the game’s roster.

The trailer notes that King is a technical fighter, with a “Throw-based Hold attack” and high Waza Card damage. Over the course of his brief gameplay footage, we can see that the masked grappler’s signature Chain Throws, Shining Wizard, Giant Swing and Rage Art are all still faithfully intact. You can see the full trailer below.

Tekken will be released for both iOS and Android devices in Japan, North America and Europe, with a release date yet to be revealed. Pre-registration is now open at tekken-mobile.com. A soft launch of the game is currently ongoing in Canada.

CapcomFighters interviews Sean “ImStillDaDaddy” Dench about that Momochi match, his new sponsor and more

The Capcom Pro Tour continues its Street Fighter V focused interview series with British pro Sean “ImStillDaDaddy” Dench. Now sponsored by Infused, the charismatic Guile player shoots on his recent high profile match versus Momochi, his training schedule, and his hopes for balancing changes in Street Fighter V.

He also — maybe predictably — believes his recent improvement is because Europe has gotten stronger in Street Fighter V overall. “I went over to America and they play a bit different. I believe Europe has gotten a lot stronger because we’ve got a lot of players, some of the play a bit reckless. America and Japan play a bit too respectful.”
