It has been confirmed that Bandai Namco UK will be running the tournament on the latest arcade version instead of the PS4 – So this means Bob and Master Raven will be available to use!

It has also been confirmed that UK Tekken commentator OG Bubsy, and ESL commentators PND Ketchup & PND Mustard will be providing the commentary for the event. The stream will be provided by Nth Gen Interactive on twitch.tv/bandainamcoeurope and should begin at 11am (UK; 6am EDT).

With so many skillful players taking part in the qualifiers, it’s hard to predict who will be crowned the UK King of Iron Fist Tournament.  Could Korean player CherryBerryMango swoop in and take the title? Or will we see a UK born player make it to Japan?

Doors open at 10am, with the group stages starting at 11am. Top 8 is estimated to begin at 4pm.

This event is not one to be missed, so make sure you keep checking Bandai Namco UK’s Twitter for details.
