TEKKEN 8 at EVO 2024

TEKKEN’s pro circuit will hit its biggest US stop at EVO 2024, with the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR bringing together the world’s best players.

As fighters throw down, they’ll earn points to earn their spot to be crowned as the first champion in TEKKEN 8. 

EVO will also pay host to TEKKEN WORLD TOUR Master+ tournaments, allowing players to earn points for leaderboard rankings and the right to compete in the finals. 

Note that Bandai Namco will release additional information around the TEKKEN WORLD TOUR 2024 Finals soon.

TEKKEN 8 will feature a large presence on the EVO showfloor. Demos that include newly released characters will be playable at the Bandai Namco booth for the duration of the event, along with a special livestream and stage events from July 19-20. 

TEKKEN fans can also look forward to activities around a partnership with Chipotle, which is joining Bandai Namco for a sponsored co-stream that Friday.


While DRAGON BALL: SPARKING! ZERO will not be at EVO for competition, attendees of the event can be among the first globally to get hands-on with a demo. Developed by Spike Chunsoft, DRAGON BALL: SPARKING! ZERO is the first sequel in 15 years for the DRAGON BALL Z: BUDOKAI TENKAICHI series. 

The ultimate fighting game tournament, EVO 2024 will be held in Las Vegas from July 19-21.
