Nintendo of Europe has announced plans to host a huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament across the region to find out which country is the best at the beloved Nintendo fighting game.
Called the “European Smash Ball Team Cup” the event will bring together 12 of the best squads from across Europe to duke it out for the first-ever European circuit, culminating in a live final this spring to crown the continent’s winner.
Teams of three will battle it out in three stock matches with no items, except for the Smash Ball which could turn around any fight. The matches will consist of best-of-five two vs. two matches, Smashdown matches, and three vs. three Squad Strike games.
Regional qualifiers in each of the 12 regions will be hosted by Nintendo to find out who will represent their country at the live finals. The 12 countries taking part includes:
- United Kingdom & Ireland
- The Nordics, comprising Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden
Further information on qualification in all the 12 countries will be announced at various locations. Be sure to check out your country’s Nintendo social accounts for more details.
The event location for the European finals will also be revealed at a later date.
