    Bandai Namco Entertainment Withdraws Official Support to Tekken, Soulcalibur, Dragon BALL Fighter Z World Tour, Due to Covid-19 Scare.

    BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc (BNE) has announced that the company will withdraw its official support for the TEKKEN, SOULCALIBUR, and DRAGON BALL FighterZ World Tour Tournaments for 2020 due to the on-going Covid-19 concerns.

    While the official support for physical tournament events has been cancelled, BNE is reportedly finalising details for an online competition event, in its bid to keep to the community together for the remainder of the year. More news will come soon on this.

    BNE has said it was forced to make a difficult decision to cancel the remaining of the physical tournament events for the 2020 season, out of care and caution for the health and safety of tournament participants and staffs.

    The announcement stressed that although BNE’s official support has been withdrawn, individual tournament organisers may still choose to continue holding physical events.

    Fans and participants should seek tournament details through event websites but should apply their best judgment regarding on-site participation.

    The announcement did not mention a timeline where official physical events will return but the company has said that they will do so when the condition permits.
