While the Tekken 7 tour around North America has been in effect, winners of past events are qualified for a finals event as part the fully announced regional tour of The King of Iron Fist Tournament 2016.
Major tournaments across North America including CEO 2016, SoCal Regionals and Canada Cup will be handling some of the qualifying spots for this series. The remaining Wizard World conventions that will have T7 will bear spots as well. It all leads up to a finals event, with two last chance qualifying spots, that will be announced at a later time.
For now, the circuit will use Tekken 7 until follow-up expansion Tekken 7: Fated Retribution becomes publicly available in arcades.
Winners of each qualifier will earn $1,000 with second and third place recieving $700 and $400 respectively. The finals event will carry a larger pot with $20,000 for first place followed by $4,000 at second and $3,000 at third.
So far, Geesemaster, Anakin, Brawlpro, Mr. Naps and ZTS have qualified for the finals. While South Korea's Saint won the qualifier at Final Round XIX and that second place finisher Sodam also resides from the country, Circa eSports' Anakin was given entry to the finals as per the rules.
