Some time ago, Nintendo partnered with the online competition site Battlefy. Now, that partnership is being used to create another means for players to engage with the company in one of the largest gaming events in the US, the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) this year.
Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime, has already been quoted as saying that Nintendo has some “big plans” for E3. Now, it appears there will be a competitive element attached to those plans, as the company will be hosting a Splatoon tournament, from which players will have the opportunity to compete and win a trip to E3 this year.
As E3 draws nearer, we will continue to see a lot of fantastic ways in which Nintendo will build upon the momentum that they have created for every aspect of their business, currently. Their most prevalent and exciting aspect at the moment is, of course, the Nintendo Switch, and that will be the main focus at E3, so I fully expect the on-site finals will feature the new Splatoon 2 which is due for release in the Summer!
Will you look to participate in the competition? Did you compete in the previous tournament?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
