Just as details have emerged on more qualifiers for the Asia finals of the King of the Iron Fist Tournament and a European tour for Tekken 7, Bandai Namco Entertainment USA has revealed more information on the North American finals for Tekken 7: Fated Retribution’s pre-release tournament. Tournaments have been happening at events all throughout the year, with regular competitions at Wizard World events, as well as at big tournaments like Combo Breaker and CEO. There are five qualifiers left on the North American circuit, but fret not Tekken fans, as there is a still a chance to qualify.

On the 9th of November–the day before the NA King of the Iron Fist finals–Bandai Namco are holding a “Last Chance” qualifier at the Hilton Union Square in San Francisco, which will have 256 open slots to decide who will fill the remaining places for the 20-player final. If there are an odd number of slots remaining in the final 20 man bracket, tiebreakers will be played to determine those last entrants.

The actual finals will have an initial round robin stage, with two entrants from each of the four pools going through to create one final top 8. The winner of this bracket will then walk away with a cool $10,000. This event will be held on the 10th of November at the Ruby Skye in San Francisco, with tickets going on sale on October 3rd at 10am PDT, so set your alarms to guarantee a ticket. More information on the remaining North American qualifiers and finals can be found on the official Tekken 7 site.
