Nintendo Life hosting Mario Kart 8 Tournament at EGX London 2014
Prepare to put the pedal to the metal, with the Nintendo Life UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament set to take place at this year’s EGX London 2014.
The event, formerly known as the Eurogamer Expo, will take place between 25th – 28th September at Earls Court Exhibition Centre London, and racers eager to participate won’t have to wait until then to get involved. Players will firstly need to qualify by racing in four heats that will precede the main event, with the top three in each receiving an invite to take part in the 12-player Grand Final held at EGX London 2014.
These heats will kick off next week, and will run on these scheduled dates:
Heat One: Saturday 16th August 2014 between 4 – 8pm BST
Heat Two: Sunday 24th August 2014 between 2 – 6pm BST
Heat Three: Saturday 6th September 2014 between 2 – 6pm BST
Heat Four: Sunday 14th September 2014 between 4 – 8pm BST
The racer that reigns victorious will win a copy of every Wii U first-party physical software release for the next 12 months, £100 Nintendo eShop credit, and a horde of other unspecified prizes.
Those that are unsuccessful in securing themselves a place in the Grand Final can still participate in separate tournaments, where Nintendo plushes, Nintendo Official UK Store vouchers, Nintendo eShop credit and mini trophies will be up for grabs.
EGX London 2014 takes place between Thursday 25th – Sunday 28th September at Earls Court Exhibition Centre London, with more information available on the official website. To register for the Mario Kart 8 Tournament, head on over to Nintendo Life!
