Whether its due to recent criticism or a change in policy, Nintendo of America has shown increasing support to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate competitive scene. Its latest endeavor is a partnership with the gaming tournament platform, Battlefy.
The deal will see Nintendo provide prizing for Battlefy’s upcoming Super Smash Bros. North America Ultimate Online Open Spring 2020 tournament. Taking place from February 29 to March 1, the online tournament will be open to players in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. The top four players will also advance to CEO Dreamland 2020, Orlando, with Nintendo covering their travel expenses.
The Japanese game company will help promote the event across its official channels in a bid to support the amateur Super Smash Bros. Ultimate scene. Battlefy, on the other hand, will focus on what its best at, tournament setup and administration.
The collaboration builds on the relationship started last year when Battlefy hosted the official Nintendo Smash Bros. Ultimate circuit events like EVO 2019, The Big House, and Genesis 6. The North America qualifiers alone attracted over 6,500 players, and Battlefy will most likely host this year’s events as well.
This partnership is poised to provide amateur Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players with an accessible means of pursuing a professional esports career.
