If you can’t wait to get your hands on Super Smash Bros. before it releases this winter on the Wii U, you’ll have your chance at E3 as Nintendo is organizing a huge tournament that will take place on the same day as their digital event. Nintendo will host 3,000 fans of the game at the Nokia Plaza in Los Angeles. Wrist bands will be handed out at 9:30 am on a first come, first served basis.
The doors for the show will open at 2:30pm, with the Super Smash Bros. Invitational beginning at 4pm. If you won’t be attending E3 this year, you’ll still be able to watch the action on Nintendo’s Twitch channel, which will be live streaming the event. Nintendo is also offering tournament spots to those who come dressed as their favorite Smash Bros. characters, so if you’re into cosplaying and want to try and win a spot in the tournament, you better dust off that Samus suit.
