Nintendo detail how to attend Super Smash Bros. Invitational
If you were looking to attend the Super Smash Bros. Invitational, Nintendo of America have confirmed details about how you can secure yourself a ticket.
The event, which will take place on Tuesday 10th June, is a public tournament that will see 16 selected players battle in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at the NOKIA Theatre L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles, and will also be livestreamed on Twitch’s E3 channel and Nintendo’s Twitch channel.
If you want to watch in person, wristbands will be distributed at NOKIA Plaza at L.A. LIVE, 777 Chick Hearn Court in Los Angeles from 9.30am on the day. 3,000 will be handed out, being provided on a first come, first served basis. Once obtained, you’re then free to leave the plaza area and return later in the day. Cosplayers who dress up as their favourite Super Smash Bros. characters may also be selected for priority seating, sitting at the forefront of the action, in front of the stage.
The breakdown of the day’s events are as follows:
9:30am: Wristband distribution begins at NOKIA Plaza at L.A. LIVE, 777 Chick Hearn Court in Los Angeles. A wristband is required for entry, and 3,000 wristbands are available to Nintendo fans on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Fans are requested to not line up prior to Tuesday morning. Once a wristband is obtained, fans can leave the plaza area and then return later that day, closer to the start of the event. The order that wristbands are obtained in the morning does not impact the order of entry into the venue in the afternoon.
2:30pm: Doors open
4pm: Super Smash Bros. Invitational begins
