During the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch next month, we've joined Nintendo UK to bring you Smash Battles Live!
Smash Battles will take the form of a short series of videos, the first of which can be seen. Along with the amazing Arekkz Gaming we will bring you up to speed with all things Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-related.
Super Smash Bros . has come very far from the original on N64, on to Super Smash Bros. Melee which was a revolution for the series. This developed into Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii, and finally we got our first portable taste of Smash Bros. with the great Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. At the same time as the 3DS version, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U brought the iconic series into brilliant HD ̵
All matches from the classic Super Smash Bros. series of games return to Ultimate, as well as some new characters like Ridley. In the next three episodes of Smash Battles Live, we get real depth of all things. Smash and figure out the nitty-gritty details of everything you might want to know.
But that's not all; We want you to also get involved and vote on who your favorite Smash characters are on the Nintendo Life Instagram page. We'll post new polls every day at Instagram so you can tell who your favorite Smash fighter is.
The last 8 characters you selected will be the characters involved in a beautiful live streamed tournament. We would like you to join us there too, so if you go to www.smashbattleslive.com you may be in a chance to join us in the live stream match .
From all of the participants, four random people will be chosen to join Alex, Arekkz and two special guests who are not yet to be revealed. The four people who join us will go away with a special limited version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game that includes a GameCube controller and adapter. The overall winner will also go away with a Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Switch console as well; This console has limited edition Joy-Con and a Smash Bros. theme dock. Fancy!
The big tournament will take place at the Loading Bar, located in Shepard's Bush, London on December 7th. This just happens to be the launch day of a pretty special Nintendo game of course.
Then start voting for your favorite characters now on Instagram. We will pitting 4 characters against each other every day in the run-up to the big tournament. Whole roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be posted on our Instagram account, so all characters will have a bug error. See you there!
Please note that this tournament is open to participants in the UK only.
