For two intense hours on Friday 23rd October from 18.00 to 20.00 CEST (5- 7pm UK time) , Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players from eligible European countries will duke it out in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate European Online Challenge – Throwback Throwdown.
As the theme for this Online Challenge is the Throwback Throwdown, only stages and items from the original Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo 64 will be available. It’ll take tenacity, courage, and more than a little knowledge of old-school geography to emerge victorious.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch features every fighter from the series’ history, with a roster of 69 fighters included in the game, plus more available for purchase. All fighters are eligible for the Throwback Throwdown, so players can pick their favourite and give it their best shot.
Players will be battling to rack up the highest Tourney score in their region, all in the hopes of winning a prize of 10,000 My Nintendo Gold Points, worth £100 when used to purchase content in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch. Players who don’t quite make it to the top spot for their region, but still place in the top 100 Europe-wide, can win 1,000 My Nintendo Gold Points, worth £10 in Nintendo eShop. There’s plenty for pugilists to play for, and only two hours to compete for it!
More information and full rules are available at the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tournament Portal.
