Tekken 7 is going out with a bang. The last tournament of the now nearly fourteen-year-old game
is coming this weekend with the Tekken World Tour 2023 Global Finals.
Twenty players from all over the globe will fight for a chance to win the last Tekken 7 competition before Tekken 8 comes out on January the 26th.
Last Chance Qualifier
On the 12th of January, the last available slot for the main event will be up for grabs. Over 300 players are going to attend the Last Chance Qualifier in New Orleans, but only one of them can make it to the Tekken World Tour 2023 Global Finals.
Players will be divided into eight pools, dueling until only 24 are left (three from each pool). Top 24 will be whittled down until there are only eight players left, leaving us with the last part of the Qualifier, a double elimination bracket.
The victorious player will be the 20th participant of the Tekken World Tour 2023 Global Finals.
Tekken World Tour 2023 Global Finals
The Global Finals are a culmination of more than half a decade of history for these players. We have three returning champs, all with a chance to be the only one to win two World Tours in Tekken 7.
Seven years after the first edition, Tekken World Tour is about to end the Tekken 7 era with one of the most stacked tournaments in the history of the game.
The winner of the Last Chance Qualifier will join the top 19 players in the TWT leaderboard. These are:
