Smash Bros. 3DS tournament at San Diego Comic-Con

Nintendo will live-stream competitive event via Twitch

Nintendo will host a Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tournament at San Diego Comic-Con, the first ever organized competitive event for handheld brawler.

The July 25 tournament will begin at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge at the Marriott Marquis & Marina, which is adjacent to the convention grounds. Slots will be assigned starting that morning on a first-come, first-served basis.


Participants will progress from 4-player qualifying matches to one-on-one finals. Nintendo plans to stream the tournament on its Twitch channel.

The firm previously hosted an international tournament for the Wii U version of the game at E3 in June, drawing crowds and a sizable streaming audience.

The Nintendo 3DS edition of Super Smash Bros. is scheduled to release in October, while the Wii U version is slated for the holiday season.

In other tournament news, the Evo Championship Series 2014 lists Nintendo as a sponsor for its annual event starting Friday. Super Smash Bros. Melee is included as one of its official titles.
