James Miller wins Nintendo UK’s Super Smash Bros. Invitational


MCM Birmingham Comic Con played host to Nintendo UK’s first ever Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament today.

32 players from the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U community descended on Birmingham’s NEC, competing against one another in a bracketed tournament that eventually led to the Grand Final between Michael St. Louis and James Miller – playing as Pikachu and Luigi respectively.

Having already faced each other in StreetPass UK’s National Tournament, it was a repeat victory for James who displayed his brawling prowess with Mario’s nervy brother to beat Pokémon’s signature electric mouse into submission.

His Super Smash Bros. Invitational win saw him handed a £60 Nintendo eShop voucher, whereas the runner-up prize was £40 Nintendo eShop voucher.
