Are you a fan of Super Smash Bros.? Well that’s good. As of Today Nintendo has announced that they are inviting fans in or around the Los Angeles area to attend and observe the first-ever public tournament of their upcoming title Super Smash Bros, for Wii U. On Tuesday June 10th, Nintendo will welcome sixteen highly skilled players to the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles in order to celebrate the Super Smash Bros. fan culture and find out who is the best of the best. This event is said to entertain thousands of players in person as well as to those watching the live-streamed event on Twitch via the E3 channel as well as Nintendo’s Twitch channel to let those who could not make it to E3 still watch the event from their very home. For those of you who like to dress up in cosplay, you do have a chance to get selected for a chance to sit up front near the stage itself as the tournament occurs.
The event will be photographed, filmed, and of course eventually posted on Nintendo’s YouTube channel, where the event can also be seen!
Here are the details for Tuesday, June 10 from our friends at Nintendo:
9:30 a.m.: Wristband distribution begins at NOKIA Plaza at L.A. LIVE, 777 Chick Hearn Court in Los Angeles. A wristband is required for entry, and 3,000 wristbands are available to Nintendo fans on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Fans are requested to not line up prior to Tuesday morning. Once a wristband is obtained, fans can leave the plaza area and then return later that day, closer to the start of the event. The order that wristbands are obtained in the morning does not impact the order of entry into the venue in the afternoon.
2:30 p.m.: Doors open
4 p.m.: Super Smash Bros. Invitational begins
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is scheduled to launch during the winter of 2014, while the Nintendo 3DS version is targeted for this summer.
