Bandai Namco announced last week the dates for the Tekken 7: King of the Iron Fist Tournament 2016 for North America.

According to Bandai Namco, the tournament “aims to bring together the top Tekken players from around the country for the largest ever Tekken tournament in North America for a knockdown, drag-out competition through 18 different cities across the United States and Canada for bragging rights and cash prizes.”

The tournament is being hosted in anticipation of the home console release of the fame, although it does not have a scheduled release date as of yet, and is only available to be played in arcade form at this time. The easiest way for players to get to an Tekken 7 arcade machine will be through the tournament.

The King of the Iron Fist tournament will be making stops across North America, including Portland, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Sacramento, Columbus, Orlando, Chicago, Richmond, Austin, and Pittsburgh.

“Each tournament event will feature a prize pool of $3,000 with a final prize pool of $20,000 at the Tekken 7: The King of the Iron Fist Tournament 2016 – North America finals,” says Bandai Namco.

The next event is scheduled to take place May 27-29, at the Combo Breaker event in Chicago, IL.

Katsuhiro Harada, Director of Tekken 7, said, “The Tekken series is a cornerstone of the fighting game community and continues to evolve and advance the genre forward with each installment. I’m excited to see what the North American Tekken community is made of as they compete over the next seven months in the Tekken 7: The King of the Iron Fist Tournament 2016 in North America.”
