Thats right- Nintendo will be hosting its first-ever tournament for the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS at San Diego Comic-Con on July 25! They are inviting fans to come to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the Marriott Marquis & Marina (adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center) for a CHANCE to participate. That is the one thing, because Tournament slots are limited; fans can sign up that day but its on a first-come first-serve basis. The tournament is supposed to start at Noon, where there will be a preliminary round in which groups of four competitors battle it out with the winner advancing. During the finals, players will duke it out one-on-one to determine the top smasher. For those not able to attend San Diego Comic-Con or those not quick enough to make it into the tourney, the tournament will be streamed live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel.
