It’s Super Turbo’s birthday and you’re all invited – and yes, there will be cake! (but please sign up to the facebook event so we know how many to expect)
It is with great pleasure that we can announce a 2 day tournament at the Heart of Gaming dedicated to Super Turbo in celebration of the game’s 20th anniversary. The event will run from 12:00 Saturday through to 22:00 Sunday on the 22nd and 23rd of February, with Sunday being the day of the 20th anniversary!
Join us for a weekend of Super Turbo on six Versus City head to head cabinets as players from all over the UK visit London’s Heart of Gaming to show their love and support for the game that defined a genre, has given us many memorable moments and has also made us many new friends along the way.
The IIX 20th Anniversary weekend is shaping up to be one of the biggest Super Turbo events in the UK with players coming from all over the country and even from Ireland, France and Germany! It goes to show just how dedicated Super Turbo players are, and it is why we love running these events.
We will be holding five different tournaments over the weekend with three of them in the style of X-Mania, Gamespot Versus and Tougeki SBO as an homage to some of the greatest Japanese Super Turbo/2X tournaments; a special 3 VS 3 England Vs Germany event for our international players and of course not forgetting our usual double elimination tournament to mark Super Turbo Sunday VI and the end of the second season. Check out the line up below!
