The biggest fighting game tournament series in Japan is already underway! Tougeki 2007, also known as the Super Battle Opera, is an international affair with talent from Australia, Korea, England, USA among other countries! Check out our quick report on the T5DR tournament by clicking below!
The three teams that represented USA were unfortunately all eliminated in the first round. The Australian team and Shanghai teams also did not advance past the opening round, however the UK team of Tissuemon(Marduk), Ryan Hart(Kazuya) and Cris(Julia) played fairly well before losing to Team KOREA later in the tournament.
This year’s team tournament featured a LOT of great matches and down to the wire moments! It was definitely a sight to see for Tekken fans!
The finals were televised LIVE in a few hours ago on a network stream from Famitsu Japan. And here are the top results!
