Shine 2017 is just around the corner!

FGC enthusiasts from all corners of the globe will be invited to the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston, MA to participate in an event that was regarded as one of the best player experiences in 2016. In addition to celebrating all of the games for Nintendo’s Smash Bros. franchise (excluding Brawl), Shine has expanded into both the Brawlhalla Circuit and Burst League by adding Brawlhalla and Guilty Gear XRD Revelator 2 to their lineup.

Registration was set to close earlier in the week, but the team behind Shine 2017 has kindly extended the deadline to 11:59 P.M. Pacific Time tonight. This will be the final opportunity for players to get their names in the brackets – they do not offer an option to register at the venue should you not sign up online. Visit to register!

The lineup for Shine 2017 is as follows:

  • Street Fighter V
  • Rivals of Aether
  • Brawlhalla
  • Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
  • Super Smash Bros 64
