Gonzalo “Zero” Barrios has come first in every Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament he’s been in, that’s 34 consecutive wins since November 2014 in the 1v1 category. The founder of Community Effort Orlando has offered a bounty on Zero’s head, $250 for the person that takes away his title, a hefty incentive! But then Chris Brown, owner of Smashboards.com offered to match that $250 if they got involved, making it $500 for whoever can take Zero out. CEO 2015 tournament will be taking place June 26th-28th, so we’ll have to wait and see if anyone claims the bounty.

Super Smash Con is a huge all-ages convention held this year in Chantilly, Virginia to “celebrate the games we loved as kids– and still love as adults!” From August 6-9th, the event will feature a full Super Smash Bros. tournament and lots more entertainment, like a live performance of gaming music from an orchestra and real life Super Smash Bros. You can also take a look through gaming history, arcade games, free play zones and quick play tournaments.
And, the event is now open for registration! For the whole weekend (4 days) the registration costs $65, and then entering one of the 4 Smash tournaments will cost $10 per game. Day passes range from $21 to $29, but you won’t be able to compete in the main tournament events, where there is more than $30,000 to win in prizes. So, who’s going to go to Super Smash Con?
