Nintendo Celebrates Smash Bros With Tournament

With the release of the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS just around the corner, Nintendo is celebrating by throwing an epic tournament at GameStop all over the country! Each of these competitions will put 64 warriors, picked on a first-come first-serve basis (as there will be no preregistration), in three rounds of 4-player matches to determine just who is the strongest of all time.

The winner of each of these local tournaments will then be given an invitation to attend Nintendo‘s National Open Tournament in New York City on October 11th. The event will be streamed live on Twitch and Nintendo’s YouTube page at 6PM allowing gamers to see the action for themselves without having to be there. Also notable is that you will be allowed to use the new custom move sets that are introduced for the first time in the 3DS game. This is sure to make for interesting competition as players experiment with the new tactics at the highest level of play.

Nintendo World in New York will also be offering gamers a chance to buy the new game early on October 2nd.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
