TEKKEN World Tour 2018 SEA Tournament List and Dates Revealed

Written by Contributor

March 6, 2018

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia Pte. Ltd., together with social video service Twitch, today announced the return of the TEKKEN World Tour for 2018.

The goal of the partnership is for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment and Twitch to work together to further build the TEKKEN 7 fighting game community and foster sustained long-term growth for the historic fighting game franchise.

Last year marked the official return of TEKKEN 7 to a global stage with the TEKKENWorld Tour, a tournament series which searched for the best players across three regions and culminated in an explosive finals in San Francisco, California. The winner, Qudans, came from the Asia-Pacific region, which boasted the most dominant players in the tournament.

TEKKEN World Tour 2018 kicks off on 16th March, at Final Round in Atlanta, GA, USA and will continue across Asia Pacific, the Americas and Europe in 40 tournaments. The eight-month season will cover the entire Southeast Asia region with five stops:

  • Bangkok, Thailand on 24-25 March
  • Jakarta, Indonesia on 7-8 July
  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on 14-15 July
  • Makati, Philippines on 15-16 September
  • Singapore on 13-14 October

This year’s TEKKEN World Tour takes on a broader global format by awarding participants with Ranking Points in one global pool (based on their local performance results).

At the end of the season, the top 19 players who have accrued the most Ranking Points will automatically qualify to compete in the TEKKEN World Tour Finals event, which will be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands in November 2018. One additional finals slot will be open for the lucky winner of a Last Chance Qualifier tournament which will take place at the TEKKEN World Tour Finals. There, national pride will be on display, cash prizes awarded and ultimate bragging rights will be earned by the winner.

Registration

Participants can register to compete through the Southeast Asia events’ registration pages to begin their fight to the top of TEKKEN World Tour’s leaderboard system.
