Super Smash Bros. 3DS Tournament at SDCC

With the release of Super Smash Bros. on the horizon, it’s easy to forget that there are actually two different versions of the game being released—one for the Wii U, and another for the 3DS. The 3DS version will arrive first on October 3rd in North America, and in promotion for this hotly anticipated game, Nintendo of America will be running a special tournament at San Diego Comic-Con.

The July 25th tournament will be broadcast by Twitch on Nintendo’s official channel, with a press release revealing additional details:

“Fans are invited to come to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the Marriott Marquis & Marina located at 333 W. Harbor Drive (adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center) for a chance to participate.

Starting at noon, there will be a preliminary round in which groups of four competitors battle it out, with the winner advancing. During the finals, players will duke it out one-on-one to determine the top smasher. Tournament slots are limited, and fans will be able to sign up the day of the event on a first-come, first-served basis.

For fans not able to attend San Diego Comic-Con, tournament action will be streamed live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel at Additional Nintendo Gaming Lounge activities will be announced in the future.”

If you’re not heading to the Con this weekend to try and compete, check it out and watch the action online!

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
