We’re less than a day away from REV Major 2019, but in case you’re still undecided whether or not you should go, we’ve got you covered.
REV Major is the premiere Fighting Game event in the Philippines and along with the best in the fighting game community in the country, it has also been known to bring in some of the best around the world. We’re talking about fighting game professional players, casters, and this year some of the biggest names in the scene.
What better way to do #GoodAssTekken again than to have the guys who started it all, RIP, MarkMan and TastySteve are…
We open with the three main voices that will be calling the plays and shots for Tekken 7. The three gentlemen are seasoned veteran casters in Tekken, Reepal “Rip” Parbhoo, Mark “Markman” Julio, and Steve “Tasty Steve” Scott. While the two main voices for Dragon Ball FighterZ will be veterans, Jonathan “Tyrant” Parkes and Samad “Damascus” Abdessadki. Some other notable casters are local mainstays such as Arthur James “PBE DrJimmy” Malgapo, Darwell “Asurai” Llarena, Paulino “Amplifire” Barreiro, to name a few.
With an already stacked roster of casters, we’re not done yet because the list of players expected to play at the event is just as stacked. The event has always brought in some of the biggest names in Tekken and this year is no difference. In fact, the announcement of the Master Event status in the Tekken World Tour may have even enticed even more.

Goodluck to our current and former players of The Nationals Tekken 7 who will be competing this weekend at REV Major 2019!
Let’s not forget the local Tekken 7 players that will be partcipating like Andrej “LPE.Doujin” Albar, Alexandre “LPE AK” Laverez, and Julius “PSO.Jules” Luzano.
While the list goes on for other titles like Dragon Ball FighterZ and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, let’s get to the two special guests this year. Both of which are legends in their own right within the gaming and fighting game community alike.
The first of the two is the Street Fighter legend, Daigo “(The Beast) Daigo” Umehara. One of the big OG’s in the fighting game community, Daigo is most remembered for EVO Moment 37 or simply the Daigo Parry. Which if you haven’t watched it, we’ve left a video above. Thank us later.
The man, the myth, the legend. The iconic producer of one of the biggest fighting games in the world, Katsuhiro Harada…
While the second of the two is Katsuhiro Harada. Harada is most known, of course, as the producer of the Tekken series. Yes, THE producer. He’s been involved in other games under Bandai Namco such as Soulcalibur IV, Pokkén Tournament, and Street Fighter X Tekken, to name a few.
REV Major 2019 happens on September 28-29 and is free to spectators. See you there!
