The 6 and 7-Star Dragon Balls have been spotted in Japan and Australia!

Since the initial announcement of the Dragon Ball FighterZ World Tour, we’ve known about the first five of the seven Saga Events where players can battle for a Dragon Ball — which will allow them to qualify as a seeded player for the Finals in 2019 — but the final two have remained a mystery.

Recently, the curtain was finally lifted on the locations, dates, and events that will be the battlegrounds for the 6 and 7-Star Balls. While the 5-Star Dragon Ball will be on the line at this weekend’s SEA Major 2018 in Singapore, we now know that the following Saga Event will take place in Tokyo, Japan, as Japan Round will be held at the VR Zone Shinjuku on the weekend of November 24th and 25th.

Meanwhile, the 7th and final Saga Event will be hosted in the Oceania Region’s Melbourne, Australia at the inaugural CouchWarriors Crossup, in the suburb of Coburg North, Victoria, between December 15th and 16th; it will represent the absolute final chance to obtain seeding for the Finals in January 2019, aside from the “8th Saga” Last Chance Qualifier Tournament to be held at the Finals themselves. CouchWarriors Crossup is conformed to be receiving the customary $5,000 pot bonus for a Saga Event, but any bonus for the Japan Round is yet to be revealed.

With GGP|Kazunoko (CEO Champion), Echo Fox|SonicFox (VSFighting Champion), CO|GO1 (Ultimate Fighting Arena Champion), and NRG|HookGangGod (Thunderstruck Champion), already qualified, and a 5th player set to soon join them, the battles are guaranteed to grow even more intense as we inch closer to the Finals — and it will certainly be interning to witness it all play out before our eyes. You can see the confirmation tweets of these events below.

Registration for CouchWarriors Crossup — which will also feature tournaments for the newly-released Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (singles and doubles), Under Night In-Birth Exe: Late[st], Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, SoulCalibur VI, Project M, Rivals of Aether, Super Smash Bros. Melee (singles and doubles), Injustice 2, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat XL, and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle — is currently live at smash.gg. Registration for the Japan Round will likely be opened at a date closer to the event.
