The return of in person esports gaming is being heralded by UBC Esports and Galint Gaming. Battle of B.C. 4, a Super Smash Bros tournament, will take place at the UBC campus from June 10 – 12.

The event was originally supposed to take place in 2020, but was postponed because of COVID-19.

The main events will be the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

There are side tournaments as well, in person panels and podcast recordings, a vendors alley and a 19+ party with entertainment.
