🎮 GameWorks will hold a $25K USD Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament that begins across its seven United States locations.
The grand finals will be held on June 29 at GameWorks’ Las Vegas venue and will be broadcast on Twitch. COUGAR, Alienware, and Tabasco are sponsoring the event. GameWorks, Inc. announced today that it will hold a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament across its seven United States venues, with $25K in prizing up for grabs.
🕹 The GameWorks Showdown begins with local qualifier rounds at each of the venues on May 12, with a gradual build-up to regional qualifiers at each location on June 9. Each GameWorks will crown a regional champion, and then they will all meet for the grand finals at GameWorks Las Vegas on June 29. Additionally, that location will hold a last-chance qualifier the night before the finals to add an eighth competitor. The $25K in prizing includes both cash and Alienware hardware, including an Area 51M gaming laptop (which starts at $2,150), although the tournament winner will walk away with $10K cash. The grand finals will be broadcast via Twitch.
🏆 “GameWorks is leading the esports phenomenon nationally. This multi-location tournament across seven GameWorks venues nationwide is among the country’s largest to date,” said GameWorks chairman and CEO Philip N. Kaplan in a release. “This is also one of the largest tournaments and highest prize pools for a Smash Bros. Ultimate competition. We are affording dedicated Smash Bros. players and communities within our venues the opportunity to participate nationally and compete with players around the country. We are capturing the interest of this distinct audience by giving them a national platform to compete for high stakes.”
