Nintendo sent out a press release this morning seeking new challengers for a Super Smash Bros. tournament at San Diego Comic-Con. This tourney will feature the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, unlike the Wii U version challengers squared off on at E3.
The challengers will be selected from fans already in San Diego on July 25th. Fans, according to the release, should head “to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the Marriott Marquis & Marina located at 333 W. Harbor Drive (adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center) for a chance to participate.”
For those who want to watch the tournament while far away from San Diego? Nintendo will put the livestream up on Twitch once again.
Will you be watching? Or, do you have what it takes (geographically) to enter the tournament on your own?
