The official Dead or Alive 6 Twitter account (via Team Ninja website) has announced the Dead or Alive 6 World Championship. This seems very similar to the pro tours for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, Tekken 7, and Dragon Ball FighterZ.

We previously mentioned this World Championship earlier today.

There will be over $90,000 in cash prizes. It was not revealed how the prize pool will be divided throughout the tour.

Qualifier events will take place in North America, Europe, and Asia. Each region's top competitors will compete in the grand finals event.

The grand finals will take place in Japan. An exact location was not provided.

A statement declares that the schedule, pre-qualifier areas, and regulations will be announced later.

Dead or Alive 6 will be released on March 1, 2019. The revealed roster includes Ayane, Bass Armstrong, Bayman, Brad Wong, Christie, Hayate, Helena Douglas, Kasumi, Mai Shiranui (along with another unknown King of Fighter rep), Marie Rose, Raidou, Rig, Ryu Hayabusa, and many more.
