Hypespotting V, the largest fighting game community event in the UK, once again is here!

On April 2nd and 3rd 2016, the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow will host the return of the largest fighting game community event, Hypespotting V, in the UK today. Over two days, players from across the UK, Europe, and the World will compete for fantastic prizes and the right to call themselves a Hypespotting champion. Presented by Versus Scotland, this will be the fifth straight year for an event which has gained international recognition, and continues to provide players with an atmosphere and feel unmatched anywhere else in the UK.


Hypespotting V will feature tournaments in the biggest fighting game titles around today, including the newly released Street Fighter V, Mortal Kombat XL, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. With its well established reputation, Hypespotting has received the backing of a number of major sponsors including this year Nintendo, Capcom, BandaiNamco, Warner Bros., NetherRealm Studios, Twitch, CEX, PQube, and more.


Hypespotting is the best reflection of the UK fighting game community. Through the strength of competition in the tournaments, professional standard presentation, support of key sponsors, and a firm belief in building an event with the community at its heart, we are confident that Hypespotting V will prove to be a very special, memorable, and highly enjoyable weekend.
