“We are really proud of the Tekken fans in Southeast Asia. Their passion towards the game continues to show how popular Tekken is in this region. It is regretful that we could not bring the qualifiers to Thailand this year, we promise it will be bigger and more exciting for Thai fans in 2017. The next console release of Tekken 7 will definitely continue to bring excitement to the fans and we hope to further grow the Tekken brand in Southeast Asia.” – Rainel Tan, General Manager (Southeast Asia).
Due to the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej on 13th October 2016, the Thailand qualifiers will be postponed until 2017. However, fans will still be able to pit their skills on Tekken 7 at Thailand Game Show Big Festival 2016 happening on 9th to 11th December for causals.
