That's right! Nintendo is inviting everyone along for the ride for the Super Smash Bros. Tournament at this year's E3 event. However, they will be competing, not only against their peers, but also 16 previously selected highly skilled Super Smash Bros.. The players will meet at the "NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to celebrate Super Smash Bros. fan culture and find out who will emerge victorious on the big stage."
The PR announcement this morning included a link for the public to join in the action: http://e3.nintendo.com/#2014/tournament.
Nintendo detailed the itinerary for the June 10th event as follows:
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
If that's not enough excitement, there will be an added incentive for those who come dressed as their favorite Super Smash Bros. character. Some will be selected to be seated front row of this publicized event. So, in this case, "dress to impress"!
Super Smash Bros. will be released later this year.
