Nintendo Puts Out Call For People's Challenger At E3 Super Smash Bros. Tournament

by Kyle Hilliard on May 24, 2014 at 09:18 AM

Nintendo's upcoming Super Smash Bros. E3 tournament is invitation only, but there is one way to compete if you haven't already heard from Nintendo.

If you think you can handle the competition at the Nokia Plaza on June 10 in Los Angeles, Nintendo is accepting Instagram video applications from fans to become the "People's Challenger". The participant who shows the most enthusiasm, demonstrated creativity, and overall artistic quality in the video will be flown to the event, and given a pass to attend E3. Fans have until May 27 to enter and can submit their videos by using the phrasing, "My name is and this is my submission for the Super Smash Bros. People's Challenger Contest. #SmashChallengerApproaching #NintendoContestEntry."

Our Take
The big prize from this contest is the chance to attend E3 on Nintendo's dime. Something tells me the contestants Nintnendo has already sent invites to for participation are probably pretty amazing at Super Smash Bros.. I don't know if the People's Challenger will have much of a chance on stage, but I would love to be surprised.
