EVO Japan to Feature Playable Soul Calibur VI & SCV Side Tournament

The SoulCalibur & Tekken 7 Producer Motohiro Okubo made an appearance during the Eastern Japanese online qualifiers for their national Tekken 7 tournament and relayed some news for Soul Calibur fans going to EVO Japan. The first of which is that Bandai Namco are planning to have playable builds of Soul Calibur 6 for people to try out at the event and it marks the first time the public will be given access to the new game. It wasn't disclosed what build the game will be (If it is still the Mitsurugi/Sophita build for instance) but more details about the playable SC6 demo is said to be coming at a later date. Next bit of news was bringing up that Evo Japan is having a side tournament for Soul Calibur V, the previous SC game on the PS3 & X360. Registration for that side tournament are now open so sign-up if you happen to be over there. EVO Japan marks a small resurgence of Soul Calibur activity so perhaps we might even see some new news or announcements about the series made at the event. If you want to check out the VOD for the announcement segment, you can find it below. EVO Japan is taking place in Akihabara, Japan on January 26th-28th, 2018.

Japan Paves the Way for E-sports with New Gaming Pro Licenses

Big news for the e-sports industry in Japan has come forward with the recent announcement that official 'Pro Licenses' are being issues from next year. Japan has in the past prevented their really strong players from making a career out of their talent due to strict gambling laws but this new initiative will seperate these "Pros" from the general public. With this news in mind, the upcoming Game Party Japan 2018 tournament (Togaiki) comes as the country's first opportunity to grant legal prize money to these professional gamers in the upcoming Tekken 7 tournament on February 10~11, 2018. Bandai Namco have currently been running their Japan Regionals competition starting with online qualifiers from this month which is leading into their finals play off in January 14 with top 3 finishers from there being granted an appearance in the GPJ 2018 tournament. There's a lot more to this to go on as the new year approaches but for now, you can read the details on these developments and the Bandai Namco support source from the Tekken 7 website:
