At this month’s tournament: It’s that time of year again; leaves are starting to change, temperatures going down, you all know what that means? It’s time for our September Super Smash Bros. for WiiU Tournament! This Smash tournament will also have a Free-To-Enter Amiibo tournament as well! Details and rules on both tournaments will be detailed in the event’s Facebook page comments.

At previous Super Smash Bros. for WiiU tournament we had many people lend their WiiU consoles to the store for the tournament, which allowed us to run multiple stations and sped up the tournament. We would like to ask again if some contestants would like to lend their WiiU consoles to the store for the tournament, which will be returned after the tournament has finished. All we would need is a WiiU console (that has been updated, with all the Smash characters unlocked and all the DLC characters downloaded), the AC adapter for the WiiU console, a copy of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (either downloaded to the system or as a physical disc), a GameCube adapter, and a WiiU GamePad with its charger. If you don’t have everything we just mentioned or even if you have just one of the items & wish to lend it to the store for the tournament contact us anyway, we might need it. If you let us know your bringing a WiiU system to the tournament ahead of time it will guarantee you a spot in the tournament! So even if you show up at 6PM and the bracket is full, fear not selfless do-gooder your act of kindness has guaranteed you a spot on the list of contestants! Please comment here on this Facebook page if you would like to inquire about how to go about bringing a WiiU system to our tournament & our chief master of events Leonard Agrusti will contact you with how to go about it, or E-mail him directly at
