Huh, seems like Nintendo’s planning to give out NX systems in quite a few contests now! I mean, first we had that t-shirt contest Shigeru Miyamoto was judging, which gave an NX to the winner. And now we’ve got a Splatoon tournament that’s doing the same!
But this won’t be an easy tournament to win. Oh no, it’s not a local tournament that takes place over a couple of hours.
Instead, it’s a full on professional competition run by Nintendo and eSports giant ESL. It’ll consist of six months worth of matches, which will culminate in a grand final next year. So yeah, think less ‘game shop contest’ and more ‘Pokemon World Championships’ style major event.
Either way, here’s Nintendo UK’s tweet about it:
