Going into the 3rd season of the tournaments with returning favorites and new locations with new categories enabling more players to participate in the tour. Now that Astro is involved, what are we to expect this time around?

ASTRO Gaming’s support for TEKKEN World Tour for 2019 will comprise of four main avenues of participation including the following; increasing TEKKEN World Tour’s prize purse, providing product prizing for all Master event champions, designation as the official audio partner to provide headset & mixamp hardware at events, and sponsors of the “ASTRO Path To TEKKEN Masters, powered by Beyond” online tournament series where players compete online to win a myriad of prizes, including: $500 USD cash, ASTRO hardware prize packs, as well as travel accommodations and tournament entry support to compete at official TEKKEN World Tour live events.

That is a decent pot to have at a tournament, to be honest, and it seems that Bandai Namco is pleased in the deal.

Astros is one of the leading gaming headset devices for eSports and preferred choice by many competitors out there. I always like to hear the cooperative of business folks teaming up to give players a better experience and healthy competition for a bigger pot at the end.
