The Showdown Battle Royale tournament series’ third iteration will run on July 14th and 15th at the Radisson Hotel in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

This year’s Smash event roster lists singles and doubles brackets for both Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. There will also be a singles bracket for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Other games include Pokkén Tournament DX, Rivals of Aether, Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball FighterZ and ARMS.

Still don't know about the PG's plan in-between PGR v5 and the release of Smash Ultimate. It could be v6, but it could be something else.

I also noticed that Ryuga is finally back. He was completely absent from any PGR'ed event on v5.

Yes he wanted to focus on school. I think he'll be back though.
