XD Games, Shanghai — March 20, 2023 | Flash Party has opened registrations for its first major NA tournament, following the game’s successful launch on PC and mobile. Players from all over the continent will clash on April 8th for the chance to win a prize pool of $10,000, going up against some serious talent from within the platform fighting game community.
In a one-of-a-kind, all new partnership between VGBC and Flash Party, the competition will kick off with an exhibition match between 4 high-profile Smash Bros titans:
- Void – currently the best platform fighter in the world.
- Zain – the best Super Smash Bros. Melee player in the world.
- Coney – the Smash Bros. community’s largest variety streamer.
- Riddles – a top 5 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player.
To be in with a chance of fighting your favourite Smash pros and winning that $10,000 prize pool, sign ups are now live at http://start.gg/fpso.
The competition is limited to 512 people. The format will be a one-day tournament, 1v1 double-elimination. Registration closes as soon as all 512 places have been filled on a first come, first serve basis.
Dubbed ‘the Spring Open’, fans can also tune into an accompanying Flash Party stream on the VGBC Twitch channel for a chance to spot Easter Eggs in the form of gift codes as the action unfolds. These can only be redeemed whilst the competition is ongoing, so keep your eyes peeled. These gift codes can be directly exchanged for hero card backgrounds, and any player who gets their eyes on the Easter Egg code can redeem the prize.
The tournament will see its 1st place competitor winning $5K + a uniquely customised in-game avatar, all runners up in the top 16 getting a split of the remaining pool. For the winner’s customised avatar, they will provide the Flash Party team with their character and design requirements to create a bespoke in-game item that immortalises their status as the first Spring Open champion.
Expect more Flash Party news later this month with details on Season 9 and a landmark partnership that will excite fighting game fans!
