For many, Super Smash Bros is a popular fighting game series that features characters from Nintendo and other franchises. You can play with your friends and are a household name at any event you go to. However, if you want to see the best players in the world complete, you should check out is Genesis X. Genesis X takes place in San Jose, California from February 16-18 and kicks off the year of competitive smash.

Genesis X is the tenth edition of Genesis. The first one was in 2009. It was a historic event for the Smash community. It had over 200 entrants and many memorable matches. Since then, Genesis has grown bigger and better. It now includes Smash games: Smash 64, Melee, Brawl, and Ultimate. It attracts thousands of players and spectators from all over the world. Furthermore, it showcases the highest level of skill and competition.

Genesis X will be especially exciting for several reasons. First, it will be the first major tournament of 2024. It will set the tone for the rest of the year. Second, it will feature many top players who have not competed in a while. They will be eager to prove themselves and challenge the current rankings. Third, it always has a lot of upsets, comebacks, and surprises. You never know what will happen at Genesis.

FGC Joins The Party

But smash is not the only game featured at Genesis X. Various other fighting games like Street Fighter 6, Guilty Gear Strive, Tekken 8, Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising, and Under Night In-Birth II Sys:Celes will also have main tournaments at the event and will be interesting to see if players from both communities will try to make an impact.

If you are a casual fan of Smash or the FGC, you should not miss Genesis X. It will be a fun and thrilling experience that only the highest level of smash can show. You will also witness the passion and spirit of the Smash community or a game series that was never focused on the competitive aspect and see it grow and develop.

You can follow Genesis on X for more information. It will have multiple streams for different games and stages. You can also follow the updates on Twitter and Reddit.
