Nintendo UK today revealed plans to host a Super Smash Bros Invitational Tournament at the 2015 MCM Birmingham Comic Con. Nintendo will be inviting 32 Wii U community players to go head-to-head and see who will be crowned champion. There will also be tournaments for non-community players to take part it on both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U.
Thirty-two Wii U community players will go head-to-head in the Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament, to battle it out live at the event. Two players will make it through to the grand finale, which alongside the quarter and semi-finals, will be streamed live on Twitch on Saturday 21st March starting from 2pm GMT, with the final at 4pm GMT.
It’s not just the community players who will be taking centre stage though, as Nintendo will also be hosting a number of tournaments, trials and matches across the weekend, available for all to participate in. Four-player Super Smash Bros. trials on the New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U gaming pods will be taking place throughout the weekend as well as on-stage exhibition matches hosted by the Nintendo comperes which will be themed at random. Guests can also experience the Super Smash Bros. amiibo functionality in an 8 player amiibo free-for-all tournament, as well as an amiibo team-up tournament where players team up with their amiibo to take on opponents, so don’t forget to bring your amiibo along to the show!
