SOULCALIBUR World Tour 2020 is Announced!
Bandai Namco and French pro player Kayane has announced the SOULCALIBUR World Tour for the 2020 year! SOULCALIBUR VI will be the next Bandai Namco fighting game that will receive a world tour alongside its counterparts TEKKEN 7 and Dragonball FighterZ. The World Tour will showcase the best SOULCALIBUR players in many tournaments around the world. The events of the World Tour are classified as Edge Master + (EVO JP), Edge Master (top majors), and Critical Edge (smaller scale tournaments), and players who place in these events earn points in order to qualify for the SOULCALIBUR World Tour Finals later in 2020. EVO Japan 2020 will be the first stop of the SOULCALIBUR World Tour since SOULCALIBUR VI will be one of main games in the event. EVO Japan will take place in January 24-26, 2020. Other events that are under the SOULCALIBUR World Tour banner will be announced early next year. SOULCALIBUR VI Producer Motohiro Okubo and MarkMan discussed the breakdown of the tour during the Fighting Tuesdays stream over at AnimeIlluminati’s Twitch Channel. Additional details regarding the World Tour are below including the AnimeIlluminati’s archive of the Fighting Tuesday’s stream and the point breakdown.
