Was the original Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour a success? Looks like it, because it’s coming back for a second round. What can esports fans expect from this second annual real-life Tournament of Power (except entire universes aren’t erased)?
The Dragon Ball FighterZ Wourld Tour 2019 / 2020, based around the DBZ-themed fighting game released last year, kicks off at the CEO Fighting Game Championships in Daytona Beach, Florida. The initial competition will run from the 28th to the 30th of June, and from there, the battle will continue around the world. Tournaments will be held at EVO, in Spain, and Japan before the final confrontation matches go down in France.
Only sixteen will be chosen for the Grand Final. Four of the spots will be given to the winners of each of the previous tournaments, with the remaining twelve given to those who have the highest total points rankings at the end of the tour (including points gained at Saga events and Tenkaichi Events, or through the “Last Chance Qualifier” held one day before the French finals).
“BANDAI NAMCO have decided to partner with Red Bull to bring the World Final and two Saga events for the DRAGON BALL FighterZ – World Tour 2019/2020.” says Herve Hoerdt, SVP of Marketing, Digital and Content at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. “[Sponsor] Red Bull has a history of helping build and lending its support to the fighting game community (FGC) across the globe and together we believe we can bring the best experience possible to our competitors.”
