Nintendo has announced that they’ll be hosting a Super Smash Bros Invitational and a Splatoon 2 World Championship at this year’s E3.
The Splatoon 2 competition will feature teams from the following regions:
Splatoon 2 players from the U.S./Canada can sign-up now to participate in the upcoming Inkling Open 2018. The winning team will move on to compete in the World Championship in June.
To be a part of the Inkling Open, you and your team will need to register by 9amPT on 4/21.
Those aged 13 and up are eligible. You’ll need a team of 4 plus 1 alternate. On-line qualifiers will be held on 4/21. Finals will take place on 4/28. Visit the Splatoon 2 Inkling Open website for a full rundown of the rules/regulations.
Along with the Splatoon 2 World Championship, Nintendo will be inviting the best Super Smash Bros players from around the world to compete on stage at E3. No word yet on which version of the game will be played, but, whether it’s an older version or the one recently announced for the Switch, it should be an enthralling watch, just like in 2014.
