TEKKEN 7 Launches With RAGE ART!


One of the longstanding fighting game franchise and highly anticipated game for 2017, the King Of Iron Fist Tournament, Tekken 7 is almost upon us. A few weeks from today, Tekken 7 would officially be launched at Playbook Circuit Makati on June 3, 2017.

Bandai Namco, developer and publisher of the blockbuster video game franchise Tekken has partnered with renowned global eSports brand TEAM SPOOKY to bring RAGE ART, the Philippines largest Tekken 7 launch event. The tournament has a 25,000 php prize pool thanks to XSplit, Player.me and Challonge.


Philippines is one of the most underrated regions for Tekken, despite players such as young Alexandre “AK” Laverez reaching Top 8 in international eSports tournaments such as King of Iron Fist 2013 and King of Iron Fist 2016. With RAGE ART, TEAM SPOOKY aims to shine a light on a local fighting game community that is mostly unknown to the rest of the world.

“Many times I have been called upon by various regions all over the world who love fighting games, small and large. I have worked tirelessly to promote their skill, passion, and brotherhood. Upon my arrival to the Philippines I found myself observing many great players who fight with the strongest passion, for prize pools so small that I can clearly see they fought only for their pride. I was compelled to put my skills to use once again, as I desire to learn their stories while showing what they can do to the rest of the world. With Rage Art, I hope that you too will come to love Philippines Tekken, and that it will be the beginning of a new age of eSports here” says Victor Fontanez founder of Team Sp00ky.

To ensure a top quality event RAGE ART has partnered with Rappler, GG Network, Sports Illustrated, Back2Gaming, Reimarufiles, Fanboyseo, Gadget Pilipinas and Unifiltekken to help provide coverage of this event and share with the world the Philippines love for gaming.

Fatboys Pizza, will also be supporting the event, by providing snacks to those who are participating and Grab, the event’s preferred transport service will also be providing a special code to attendees on June 3-4, 2017.
