In the closing moments of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship this year, Nintendo of America President Doug Bowser announced an Online Open for the game, offering players in North America the chance to show their moves and claim a spot at Evo 2019. Hope you’ve been practicing, because the time is nearly upon us. Registration is still open for some regions, while others are now closed as matches begin. 


The competition is live now and throughout this weekend, with the top four players throughout earning flight, accommodation, and entry into the Smash Ultimate pools at Evo. If you’re interested or just need a primer before you start, you can register on Battlefy and check out both the rules and a player guide that lets you know what to do and how to do it to participate. To everyone competing, best of luck!

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
