– Nintendo will host an exclusive Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament at this year’s MCM Birmingham Comic Con, bringing together thirty-two Super Smash Bros. for Wii U community players for a live head-to-head battle at the show.
Visitors to the show will not only get the chance to watch, but can also participate in a number of Super Smash Bros. tournaments and matches throughout the weekend which will take place on both New Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Guests can also get their hands on exclusive items and limited edition stock as the Official Nintendo UK Online Store returns to the show on Saturday 21st March and Sunday 22nd March, at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham.
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.
