The first-ever public tournament for Super Smash Bros. will take place during E3 and Nintendo has invited the public.
The Wii U tournament will take place on Tuesday, June 10, and 16 previously selected Super Smash Bros. players will take the stage
Nintendo expects thousands of spectators, but it will also be live-streamed on both Twitch’s E3 channel and Nintendo’s Twitch channel for those who are unable to attend E3.
Attendees who dress up as their favorite Super Smash Bros. character may be selected for priority seating at the front of the stage on which the tournament will occur. The best costumes might appear on Twitch or Nintendo’s YouTube channel.
Here are the details for Tuesday, June 10:
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.
