Last week, Nintendo announced through their NintendoVS Twitter account that Regions 5 and 6 in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North American Online Open May 2020 competition were postponed due to current events. Originally planned for June 6th, that day’s free-for-all and top 32 matches conflicted with George Floyd’s memorial as well as protests being held throughout the country.
Now, Nintendo Versus has updated the new times for Regions 5 and 6.
The previously postponed Super #SmashBrosUltimate Online Open May 2020 regions 5 & 6 Opening Rounds have been rescheduled for 6/13, now taking place before the regions 3 & 4 Opening Rounds. Both regional finals will be livestreamed starting at 10am PT on 6/14. pic.twitter.com/j43tuHzH1f
