The 2019 Tekken World Tour has been officially announced by Bandai Namco Entertainment. The annual international Tekken league will feature quite a number of changes and will kick off next month on April 20 at the The Mix Up tournament in Lyon, France.
This year’s pro circuit will feature 25 events and will introduce two new tournament categories – Master+ and Dojo – to add to the Master and Challenger events. Master+ is an exclusive category designated for EVO 2019 while Dojo is for smaller, local events.
Bandai Namco Entertainment America Vice President of Marketing Eric Hartness said in a press statement:
“Every year, the Tekken World Tour has set the stage for some of the most dramatic stories to come out of the esports world, and we look forward to entertaining the millions of fighting game fans around the globe with another great season of high-level competitive Tekken 7 play!”
The 2019 Tekken World tour will have at least $185,000 in prize money up for grabs with $100,000 going to the World Tour Finals. It was also teased that more money could be added to the prize pool through DLC and merchandise purchases.
The World Tour Finals is also changing venues and will be held in Bangkok, Thailand, later this year where the 19 top ranked players as well as the winner of the Last Chance Qualifier will battle it out for this year’s championship title.
