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.
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.
