For the first time ever, a Super Smash Bros. for 3DS tournament will be held on July 25 at San Diego Comic-Con. Nintendo announced this morning that the event is open to those at the convention, but slots are limited and players are selected on a first-come, first served basis. For those at home, Nintendo will be streaming the event on their Twitch channel just as they did for the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament.
Check out the full press release below:
Nintendo will be hosting its first-ever tournament for the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS game at San Diego Comic-Con on July 25. 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 http://www.twitch.tv/Nintendo. Additional Nintendo Gaming Lounge activities will be announced in the future.
