Fighting around the world!
Bandai Namco is taking Tekken 7 on tour. The newly revealed Tekken Tour will bring the popular fighting game to tournaments and conventions throughout North America.
The PlayStation 4 exclusive title still doesn’t have a release date, but it will be playable for the public as early as April 1 at Wizard World in St. Louis. The tour was revealed during a Twitch stream of the fighting game tournament Final Round 19. This tournament is the first step of the Tekken Tour, and a prize pool of $3,000 will be distributed to the eight finalists.
It’s likely that future tournaments will also have the same $3,000 prize pool, but details have not been finalized. Game director/producer Katsuhiro Harada told fans to keep an eye on the Tekken website for information on the game’s upcoming tournaments.
The full tour dates are listed on the official Tekken Facebook page, and you can view them below.
Tekken 7: Fated Retribution is coming to PlayStation 4 in 2016.
