Nintendo to host Smash Bros., Splatoon 2 tournaments at E3 2018

Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon 2 invitational tournaments will be hosted over E3 2018, Nintendo today announced.

“An invited group of players” will play in either title between 11 and 12 June in Los Angeles, ahead of E3 itself over 12-14 June.

“The event will showcase players from around the globe in the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament for the newly announced Super Smash Bros. game coming to Nintendo Switch this year,” Nintendo confirmed.

The Splatoon 2 will feature winning teams from tournaments held around the world, including the 2018 AUNZ Splatoon 2 Cup, which decides our region’s entrant on 21 April. Australian and New Zealand players keen to enter the tournament can register here.

As you’d expect, the tournaments will be livestreamed as part of Nintendo’s E3 offering. We’ll have more details on how to watch closer to the event.

Nintendo announced a Switch version of Super Smash Bros. earlier this month.
