Posted by at 12:14 pm on July 22, 2014

Super Smash Bros InvitationalNintendo is heading to Comic-Con in San Diego to bring a collection of fun games and engaging events directly to fans. Visitors will be able to enjoy hands-on time with Super Smash Bros. for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS , as well as additional upcoming 2014 games like Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. Add to this an exciting multiday stream of live game-play challenges on the Nintendo Twitch channel and a host of other activities.

“Nintendo fans are going to have a great time with what we have planned for San Diego Comic-Con this year, whether they are attending the event or watching at home from across the country,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “From first hands-on opportunities to tournaments and a fun live stream, we want to make sure that everyone has a great time experiencing Nintendo at the show.”

Nintendo’s hub at San Diego Comic-Con will be located at the Nintendo Gaming Lounge on the first floor of the Marriott Marquis & Marina hotel, an area open to the general public, so even fans who don’t have a Comic-Con badge can get in on the fun.

Visitors to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge will also be able to view a display of amiibo, figures modeled after Nintendo characters that will interact with compatible Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. A special area themed after Tomodachi Life will also be available, where visitors can recharge their minds, bodies and Nintendo 3DS systems. In addition to the Nintendo Gaming Lounge, Nintendo will have a booth at the San Diego Convention Center dedicated entirely to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.

On July 25 and July 26, Nintendo will stream Nintendo Challenge Live, a stage show hosted from the Nintendo Gaming Lounge that features intense tournament competition and awesome game-play challenges from some of the hottest upcoming games on Nintendo platforms. Fans can open their browsers to http://www.twitch.tv/nintendo to catch all of the action and stick around for hours to soak in all the festivities.
