Shortly after the release of TTT2, Peruvian players were seeking a rematch against Venezuela so they challenged them to a 5 vs 5. Soon, more players got behind the idea, including players from other South American countries. After many online meetings over Skype, they reached a consensus for a tournament name and a logo, and with that, the first TxT took place in Peru in 2013.
With great effort and after overcoming many hardships, the Peruvian Tekken community organized what would become the first South American Tekken tournament ever. It took place in the region of San Martín, in the capital city of Lima. There were over 100 players in attendance, including Tekken 6 EVO Champion KOR, from the USA as a special guest.
The second edition of TXT raised all standards in terms of organization and effort by the local community, without a doubt. It took place in La Paz, Bolivia. For the first time, Saint, from South Korea, was invited as a special guest.
Originally, Venezuela had been chosen to host the third edition of TXT. Unfortunately, the country´s circumstances prevented their Tekken community from organizing an event of this magnitude. As a result, Paraguay took the reins and delivered a very touching TXT. It took place in Asunción and it featured the best players in South America.
The 4th edition of TXT took place in the great city of Sao Paulo. Harry Potter, from Italy, joined the competition. For the first time, a TXT event was sponsored by Namco Bandai, who provided aditional setups to try the upcoming Tekken 7.
Every time a TXT concludes, there is uncertainty regarding what the venue will be for the next edition of this event in South America. This is when speculation for the location and other things takes place. This year has been no exception, and without a doubt the next venue is one of the most anticipated ones as Chile has many times been a candidate but never before have they actually been chosen to host the event. Now the wait is over and, as some have speculated, this time TXT will take place in Santiago de Chile.
