TekkenGamer is the brainchild of Aziz Peregrino-Brimah (‘Zee the CEO’ in the gaming world). The idea for it started in March of 2015 when Zee noticed that the same amount of news media coverage, tournament support and community support for Tekken wasn’t as strong as with other fighting games. After bouncing his vision off of a few leaders in the Tekken community like Mark ‘MarkMan’ Julio, René ‘Kor’ Maistry, Hoa ‘Anakin’ Luu, and Reepal ‘Rip’ Parbhoo, Zee was convinced that TekkenGamer needed to happen.
Launched on July 4, 2016, TekkenGamer was so highly anticipated that its site shutdown due to all of the traffic. Nevertheless, it was still a success and it quickly became a leading destination for breaking Tekken news as well as exclusive insight into the games development, events, and community highlights.
