Bandai Namco has revealed they have teamed up with Twitch and Level Up to put together a series of online tournaments for the Tekken World Tour. This is being done for those who can’t travel to a location where the qualifying was taking place. Starting Sunday, August 13, 2017, you can compete to earn Ranking Points in the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific leaderboards. Please note that online tournaments are region-locked, so make sure you register for a tournament in your region.

In an effort to open these competitions to as many players as possible, the Tekken World Tour Online Tournaments are available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. Each tournament is split across two days, with bracket play occurring on Sundays and a Top 4 Finals for each platform being contested during a live broadcast later in the week.
