Wizard World Gaming saw their tournament series debut last year, and with it considered to be pretty successful, the company is making a return with their tour in 2017, while also adding some new featured titles to the mix!
The first event is set to take place this February from the 17th-19th in Portland Oregon, with the events taking place in Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Sacramento, Orlando, Chicago, Madison, and Austin, all before the years end.
The 2016 tournament tour primarily featured the titles Street Fighter V, and Tekken 7; however, with the official release of Tekken 7 on consoles just around the corner, you can expect the turnout for Tekken 7 to be much larger. The company is also adding Super Smash Bros. Wii U to the tournament lineup, so expect Wizard World events to be much more stacked throughout 2017.
The Portland Oregon Wizard World tournament is set to feature a $3,000 prize pool for Tekken 7, and $2,000 prize pools for both Street Fighter V and Super Smash Bros. Wii U. Registration is currently open now via the official Wizard World website.
