In addition to presenting a mystery 3DS title at E3 and holding its press conference digitally, Nintendo has announced that it will hosting 3,000 fans at a live Super Smash Bros. Invitational event at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles.
This special Invitational event will be broadcast live in the NOKIA theatre, with 16 elite players putting it through its paces and 3,000 places up for grabs.
Take a look at the details below:
As a special treat for the biggest fans, attendees who dress up as their favorite Super Smash Bros. characters may be selected for priority seating right in front of the stage on which the tournament will occur. The event will be photographed and filmed, so the best costumes might appear on Twitch or Nintendo’s YouTube channel, where the event can also be viewed.
Here are the details for Tuesday, June 10:
9:30 a.m.: Wristband distribution begins at NOKIA Plaza at L.A. LIVE, 777 Chick Hearn Court in Los Angeles. A wristband is required for entry, and 3,000 wristbands are available to Nintendo fans on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Fans are requested to not line up prior to Tuesday morning. Once a wristband is obtained, fans can leave the plaza area and then return later that day, closer to the start of the event. The order that wristbands are obtained in the morning does not impact the order of entry into the venue in the afternoon.
2:30 p.m.: Doors open
4 p.m.: Super Smash Bros. Invitational begins
