Nintendo of America just announced that it will be partnering with Panda Global to create the first officially licensed Smash Bros circuit in 2022!
Confirmed. Ready your A-game, Super #SmashBros competitors. We've partnered with @PandaGlobal to launch the first officially licensed Super Smash Bros. championship circuit in North America, coming 2022! #SmashBrosUltimate #SmashBrosMelee https://t.co/3WKbEYrMH2— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) November 18, 2021
The circuit will take place in North America and have both Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Super Smash Bros. Melee! It will also feature in-person qualifying rounds for Melee and Ultimate as well as online qualifiers exclusively for Ultimate. Unfortunately, details are currently scarce, but it won’t stay that way forever, so make sure to keep an eye out for news on Panda Global’s official website and twitter.
Author’s Note: It’s a big day for platform fighter fans, first we got the announcement of MultiVersus and now this is a thing. It's pretty crazy, I never thought we'd see the day where something like this would get announced. But, what do you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
