Tekken World Tour 2023 returns with all offline events, starting with EVO Japan

Get ready for the next battle as we bid farewell to Tekken 7.

Details about Tekken 8 and Tekken World Tour 2023 were shared right before Top 8 at the Tekken World Tour 2022 Global Finals. Tekken 7 will be around for one more year as the official game of TWT 2023, but that’s about the only thing that’s remaining the same.

The structure of this years competitive circuit will be much like it was pre-pandemic. Here are the details:

  • All events will be offline only; there will be no tournaments held online
  • A global leaderboard will be used to keep record of points, not a regional leaderboard
  • There will be four event levels – Master+, Master, Challenger, Dojo

The first competitive event of TWT 2023 will kick off at EVO Japan starting in March (March 31-April 2), and will continue up until Global Finals (which is still to be announced).

While utilizing offline events and global leaderboard, it does require competitors to travel and go after points. So hopefully many of these players can obtain sponsorship by joining an esports organization.

Applications for Dojo events begins mid-March with all tournament and competitor registration for Tekken World Tour events needing to be done through their Tekken eSports portal.

Due to the number of fraudulent Dojo events in times past, a very important change has been instituted to dissuade tournament organizers from inflating numbers or reporting false information altogether. Dojos will now be required to stream their tournaments.

A schedule of events has not yet been revealed, but The MIXUP 2023 is confirmed to be part of the circuit (April 22-23). One could assume that Master and Challenger events like Combo Breaker 2023, CEO 2023 and others will certainly be a part as well. To stay up to date with all events visit the Tekken World Tour website.

Get ready for the next battle as we bid farewell to Tekken 7.

As a teenager Zee once received his Winn-Dixie paycheck and spent it all at the arcade the same day. Needless to say, his mother wasn't pleased.
