Tekken 7 Key Theft Might Mean The Game Skips US Events
Okay now, repeat after me: "Bunch of savages in this town."
MadCatz has been bringing the anticipated Tekken 7 to certain events throughout the United States. The latest stop was the Northwest Majors in Seattle, but Community & Sponsorship Manager Mark Julio ran into trouble.
As detailed at DualShockers, Julio's car was broken into and the thieves snagged the keys to the game. Julio also lost some personal and work-related items, and he has since seen some of those items appear on Craigslist.
He apologized to Game Director Katsuhiro Harada on Twitter, saying the arcade boards are safe but he needs new keys. Unfortunately, Harada confirmed that new keys won't work with the existing boards, so they all need to be replaced. The other bad news is that because of this incident, Tekken 7 might skip other events:
I'm really really sorry in advance if this hiccup prevents us from showcasing TEKKEN 7 or bringing Mad Catz to upcoming events.— Mark Julio (マークマン) (@MarkMan23) April 27, 2015
