Bandai Namco pulls official support for 2020 fighting game tournaments ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Bandai Namco has pulled support for all its fighting game tournaments for the year due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, the company is currently exploring options to move these events online.

Bandai Namco is one of the last developers to pull the plug on their live tournaments, as many others like Arc System Works and Capcom did so a while back. These events are Dragon Ball FighterZ, SoulCalibur VI, and Tekken 7 World Tours’.  No specific details have been shared regarding their online equivalent, however, the company also stated that other events featuring their games can still go ahead as planned, though they should be mindful of the health of all parties. 

EVO also canceled its live event and moved to an online offering, with all three of Bandai Namco’s fighting games a part of it. It doesn’t appear that the developer will be supporting the event, but July 4 when EVO Online begins is still a way off.
