Hyeon-ho “Rangchu” Jeong is the new Tekken 7 champion after winning the Tekken World Tour finals over the weekend at an event in Amsterdam. His victory was the culmination of a year’s worth of competition, but at times it felt like he was fighting against history and even his own character en route to earning his crown.

The end of a Tekken 7 tournament has sparked some wild speculation about what, exactly, a trophy plaque says. When the winners got on stage at South East Asia Major last Sunday, the tournament organisers handed the first-place cup to Byeong "Qudans" Mun Son. Then, they told him to turn it around so the plaque couldn't be seen. Meanwhile, third-place winner Kim "JDCR" Hyun Jin kept reaching for the trophy, perhaps to turn it around ... or to claim it for himself.
For the first time in its short history, Bandai Namco Entertainment's official Tekken 7 world championship is set to be held outside of Japan. The Tekken World Finals, scheduled for November 12, will invite 16 of the world's fiercest competitors to San Francisco to compete for a $US50,000 ($63,600) prize pool.
