While the majority of the FGC was enraptured by the action going on at Evo, another esteemed tournament series revealed details on its next installment. Moving from its usual spot in San Jose, Genesis 5 will take place in Oakland, California, running from January 19th-21st 2018.

Taking place at the Oakland Convention Center for Friday and Saturday, Genesis 5 finals will then move to the Paramount Theater to finish off proceedings. Similar to last year, Genesis 5 will be hosting tournaments for:

  • Super Smash Bros. 64
  • Super Smash Bros. Melee
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  • Rivals of Aether

The Genesis team are planning to announce more side events in the future, so expect potential tournaments for Street Fighter V, Catherine and maybe even Icons: Combat Arena.
