Bandai Namco has been running successful fighting game world tours now for a number of years with Tekken and more recently Dragon Ball FighterZ, but now it appears as though another pillar will be joining the collection next year for the competitive scene.

Professional Soul Calibur player and community leader Kayane announced today the Soul Calibur 6 World Tour 2020 with the first stop on the brand new circuit beginning with EVO Japan 2020.

Other details about the tour, its prizes and tournaments are scarce at the moment though we'll get to learn more about it really soon.

Soul Calibur series producer Motohiro Okubo as well as Mark 'MarkMan' Julio will be joining the Fighting Tuesday stream in Japan tomorrow to reveal more information about the tour's structure.

The latest Soul Calibur entry did feature a world invitational event a month ago as well as an Asian specific league this year though next year it'll finally have a go at the big time with its Bandai Namco brethren.

The next Fighting Tuesday stream is scheduled to take place at 8 p.m. JST which equates to 3 a.m. PT for those of us in the west on the AnimeIlluminati Twitch channel hosted as always by Jiyuna in Japan.

EVO Japan 2020 itself is scheduled to take place January 24–26 featuring the mainstage titles: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, Samurai Shodown, Tekken 7, BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle and of course Soul Calibur 6.

Smash Ultimate currently stands at the top of the entrant leaderboards for EVO Japan having more than every other game combined and requiring an entrant cap to be put into place.
