Arc World Tour 2024 Already Taking Form

by Elvis Mack

Arc World Tour 2023 Finals is in the books with it’s two champions in Guilty Gear Strive and Granblue Fantasy Versus Rising. However, before any of the festivals kicked off, we heard the announcement of Arc World Tour 2024. While not unexpected we are pleased to hear that the Pro Tour for Arc System Works and the Premier series for Anime Fighters sticking around for another season. Here is some things we know about AWT 2024.

The Main Lineup

During Arc Live back in early February, they announced the early lineup of the Pro Tour with Guilty Gear Strive and Under Night In-Birth II. These games are top games currently for Arc System Works and French Bread respectively leaving no surprises. However, many wondered what happened to Granblue Versus Rising as it was part of the 2023 tour.

However, during Arc World Tour Finals worries laid to rest as Cygames announced it is joining the pro circuit in 2024 as well. Meaning the three games at Arc World Tour 2024 will be: Guilty Gear Strive, Granblue Fantasy Verus Rising, and Under Night In-Birth II [Sys:Celes].

Format

While we don’t know the current full format for Arc World Tour 2024, we do have a few indications. During the Granblue slide shown above they do say the Granblue circuit will slightly vary from the one held for Guilty Gear and Under Night. As well as promises of online and offline events. This is interesting as it seems like the tour will be expanding to online event for the first time since the pandemic. Letting players who can’t normally go to majors have a shot at the world championship.

There has also been promises of the tour expanding with way more events than last year, and currently that looks to be case. EVO Japan has only been home for the SNK World Championship as most other tours start at EVO Las Vegas. However, with the inclusion in the Arc World Tour there could be plans for a yearlong event with majors who is normally left out. Events like Combo Breaker, CEO, and more could potentially have a tour spot.

Our Hope

No matter what is the format we hope that the tour will be a way to show off the scenes of all three games to their highest potential. More regions, more events, and more players showcased cause at the end of the day seeing players having a chance to show the world what they can do is one of the coolest things in the fighting game community and we hope that pro tours take that approach in the future.
