One of the biggest events in gaming, the Electronic Entertainment Expo, draws everyone from small developers to large corporate studios and publishers. Nintendo is no exception to this rule.
The company has just rolled out some of its plans for the conference and it is going to be large. Including
2014 will see the arrival of not one, but two new Super Smash Bros. games: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. To commemorate this occasion, Nintendo is inviting 16 highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players to the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles to compete in a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament.
Thousands of fans in the audience and countless more watching a live stream online will see new Super Smash Bros. characters clash with existing favourites in action for the first time. More important than declaring a winner, however, this event is a celebration of all things Super Smash Bros., and a great way for new and veteran fans to take part in a tribute to this legendary franchise.
The identity of the 16 competitors in the tournament, the announcers, and how people will be able to watch has yet to be revealed.
Also announced for this year is the Nintendo Digital Event. A vaguely defined video presentation of other upcoming projects.
They will also be continuing to skip the traditional press conference and stage show. The company will use their news show Nintendo Direct to report from E3.
