on Twitter, TEKKEN series producer Katsuhiro Harada announced that
he has become the leader and supervisor of Bandai Namco's eSports Strategy
Team. He addressed the TEKKEN, Soul Calibur, and Dragon
Ball FighterZ communities directly, stating that he and the team will
be dedicated to expanding the horizons of tournaments and events for these
3 franchises into 2019. Harada added that Bandai Namco is already planning
many official tournaments for 2019, while continuing to support
tournaments held by the community. Of course, Harada will also continue
his role as TEKKEN 7 producer. Below is Harada's full message via Twitlonger.
The future of TEKKEN 7, Soul Calibur 6, and Dragon Ball
FighterZ as competitive titles in 2019 is looking promising with
Harada at the helm. This announcement appears to be good news for Dragon
Ball FighterZ fans especially, as DBFZ was removed from several
major tournaments recently due to copyright issues.
