It has been well documented that Nintendo will be doing E3 differently compared to the rest of the industry. Whilst most publishers will be opting for more traditional means of communication – that is the Pressy – Nintendo will instead be hosting a Digital Event, Live Nintendo Treehouse streams, Best Buy Demo’s and of course – the Super Smash Bros For Wii U Tournament held on the 1oth of June.

The Super Smash Bros For Wii U tournament will feature the 16 best Smash Bros players around the world – fighting for the prestigious title of being the first official tournament winner of the new smash bros games.

Fans will be able to watch the stream live either on Twitch’s E3 Channel or Nintendo’s Twitch Channel. Or alternatively, if you live in LA, you can be in the Nokia Theatre watching the tournament in person by snagging yourself one of 3000 wristbands (first come first serve basis). The wristband will be distributed on the day starting from 9: 30 am – so get there early! Fans that dress up as one of their favorite Ninty characters will also be in the chance to get good front row seats.

I only have one question! Where is my invitation Nintendo!
