Witness the action that’s on the horizon in the forthcoming Tekken World Tour.

TEKKEN, one of the biggest fighting game franchises in the world is partnering with Twitch, the biggest social video platform in the online world to create the TEKKEN World Tour. Managed and streamed exclusively by Twitch, the TEKKEN World Tour will encompass TEKKEN tournaments from around the globe, seeking the best TEKKEN 7 players to compete in the TEKKEN World Finals taking place in North America this November.

The TEKKEN World Tour will kick-off in the U.S. on June 16-18 at the CEO Fighting Game Championships with additional stops in Orlando, FL, Dallas, TX, Orange, CA, and more. Players that are not able to attend live tournaments will be able to complete through official online tournaments with more details to be shared soon on the TEKKEN World Tour website. Lastly, a tournament is not a tournament unless there’s a cash purse involved and the TEKKEN World Tour has that covered with over $200,000 in prize money up for grabs along with limitless bragging rights and glory.

Checkout the hard-hitting action that’s coming soon in today’s TEKKEN World Tour trailer, featuring the “Now It’s Personal” rap track created by famed hip-hop artist, Kid Ink, exclusively for use in this trailer.
