Los Angeles native Julien Wiltshire just won the first ever Minecraft National Championship beating out thousands of other gamers. Julien is part of Super League Gaming which holds competitions in theaters across the nation where you get to play Minecraft of a giant move theater screen! Imagine how cool that would look!
Super League awarded Wiltshire with a Super Bolt trophy and a US$5,000 scholarship prize, while his team won a collective US$10,000 team scholarship prize.
Minecraft National Championship
The first competition of its kind, Super League’s Minecraft National Championship attracted players of the open-ended sandbox game to compete in different Regal, AMC, Cinemark and iPic movie theaters. The after-school competition is embarking on a new four-week next session starting February 2, doubling to more than 80 cities across the country.
The expansion falls in line with Super League’s plans to reach theater chains globally, following the interactive gaming league’s launch this past summer in California with theater-mode events.
