Bandai Namco has announced details for its annual fighting game tournament circuit, the TEKKEN World Tour. This year, the base prize pool has been increased from $185K USD in 2019 to $200K. In 2019, $100K of that total was originally allocated for the finals event, with that total eventually growing to $250K.
As in previous years, portions of the prize pool will be allocated as “pot bonuses” for select tournaments throughout the world that have been approved as part of the circuit, such as Evo.
The 2020 World Tour Finals will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, in December.
TEKKEN has grown steadily over the last few years. Viewership and prize pool growth for last year’s finals allowed it to become the first fighting game to appear on The Esports Observer’s PC Games Impact Index.
Today, TEKKEN game director Katsuhiro Harada announced that TEKKEN 7 has surpassed 5M copies sold, bringing the total for the series as a whole to 49M.
