The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016 North America Tour Announced!
Tekken 7 has been touring around North America recently, and it has been acting as some sort of a qualifier for something big. Winners of each tournament in the tour were given a slot of some sort, but for what?
Well, Bandai Namco Entertainment has just announced The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016 for North America! Each winner of the 18 location tournaments in the ongoing Tekken tour will be battling each other to find out which player is the best in the country. So far, the only ones who have qualified are GeeseMaster (Wizard World Portland), Circa | Anakin (Final Round 19), BrawlPro (Wizard World St. Louis), Jimmy J Tran (North West Majors 8), and ZTS (Wizard World Minneapolis). There are 13 events left with the soonest being Combo Breaker this coming May 27, 2016. In order to qualify for the main tournament however, players need to be residents of North/South America which means Saint no longer qualifies for The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016 North America.
The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016 North America has a $20,000 prize pool with cash prizes going all the way till 8th place. If you think you have what it takes, then sign up for the rest of the tournaments that are yet to come!
