Nintendo announce Smash Bros and Splatoon 2 events for E3
Nintendo have announced, the first of their E3 plans, this year they will host both a Super Smash Bros Invitational and the Splatoon 2 World Championship, during the week of E3.
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. It will also include the winning teams from their respective tournaments from across the world as they battle to become victorious at the Splatoon 2 World Championship.
While the Smash Bros Invitational is just that, an invite only event, anyone can enter for a chance to win and play in the Splatoon 2 World Championship. In fact, the 2018 AUNZ Splatoon 2 Cup will decide which team from Australia and New Zealand will have the opportunity to compete at the Splatoon 2 World Championship.
Players aged 17 and over can still register to compete, with the tournament kicking off with online qualifiers on 31st March and 7th April, where the teams will battle it out for a coveted spot in the final two and official 2018 AUNZ Splatoon 2 Cup t-shirts with their player and team names.
Then, on 21st April, the top two teams will be flown to Melbourne to compete in the grand final at Supanova Melbourne, with members of the winning team walking away with the title of Australian and New Zealand Splatoon 2 champions.
Further details about Nintendo's E3 2018 plans were not revealed, yet, but giving the recent trend, expect a Spotlight event and likely Treehouse Live again during the show. You can keep an eye here for details, but also over on the official site.
