New information has been revealed today about the Pokkén Tournament Championship Series. Alongside a new trailer below, Nintendo has updated the official Pokkén Tournament website with details on worldwide schedules, prizes and more information on how to qualify for the World Championships this year in San Francisco.
Nintendo is touting over $100,000 in total cash and non-cash prizes. The North American prize pool will feature cash prizes totaling over $30,000. Prizes for the European Circuit have not yet been announced.
The Championship Series will be broken down into two divisions: Masters and Senior. Each of the divisions will feature a number of prizes including cash, Nintendo consoles, and invitations/trips to the World Championships.
The World Championships themselves have their own prizes. The Masters Division Champion will take home $6,000 with second place receiving $4,000. In the Senior Division, the top prize is a six day round-trip for four to Oahu, Hawaii worth approximately $10,000. Even without an announcement of European prizes there is still a good deal for Pokkén Tournament and Pokémon fans alike to salivate over.
The currently announced events in the Pokkén Tournament Championship Series will run between May 14 to June 12 in Europe, and June 24 to July 17 in North America. The World Championships are scheduled for Aug. 20. For a full list of currently scheduled events and updates follow this link.
