Meet The Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 Competitors

Ismael LynchMay 12, 2018

While there are many standouts from the list, Nintendo fans have reason to rejoice even more as a new Super Smash Bros. has been announced for the Switch (in the meantime, may I suggest Brawlout as a diet Super Smash to brush off that rust). Nintendo, not one to let good publicity go to waste, is hyping up Smash Bros. Eight players from around the world will enter, only one will leave a champion.

New challengers are officially approaching for Nintendo's big Super Smash Bros.

In the past few years, Nintendo has hosted events known as the Nintendo World Championships at E3, which allowed members of the public to face off against invited YouTube, Twitch, and esports personalties to prove that they were the best Nintendo gamer around. E3 2018 is kicking off on June 12th, and Nintendo aims to blow the doors off of the new Smash Bros. game during the expo. However, Sonobe left Bandai Namco Studios before the production on Super Smash Bros. Immediately follow that up with a side order of Smash as the Invitational 2018 Tournament begins on Tuesday, June 12.

The first participant is MkLeo, a super smasher from Mexico. Arguably the best player in Wii U history, he was won a multitude of titles over his career including EVO 2015 and GENESIS 3.

If you are an avid Super Smash Bros.

Last, but certainly not least in the Super Smash Bros.

We obviously need to take this with a grain of salt, as we haven't gotten any official details on the matter from either Nintendo or Bandai Namco.

Mr. R - A professional Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player from the Netherlands. He was the runner-up at EVO Japan 2018. He ranked in the top five at EVO 2017 and at GENESIS 5.

On the Smash 4 end, Echo Fox's Leonardo "MkLeo" Perez, Yuta "Abadango" Kawamura, Beastcoast's Ramin "Mr.R" Delshad and Team SoloMid's Gonzalo "ZeRo" Barrios make up the field.

Since the upcoming Super Smash Bros's. roster is mostly a mystery, as are any changes made to existing character movesets and playstyles, we have no idea who these masters of Smash will use in the tournament. His notable achievements include being champion of EVO 2014.

In a video recently released on Nintendo's e3 website the invited participants for this tournament have been revealed.

A year ago ordinary members of the public could attend E3 for the first time, but it's super expensive and given all queues not much fun for anyone that's not press.
