Nintendo Announces the Participants in the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 Tournament

We'll likely be getting more information on the game relatively soon, with E3 2018 being right around the corner. Today, we have some interesting potential news about Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo Switch.

Phil Harnage, a writer on The Super Mario Bros.

MkLeo - A professional Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player from Mexico.

Abadango, the fourth smasher in the invitational, hails from Japan, the home of Super Smash Bros.

The players competing in the June 12 event include an even split of top Melee and Smash 4 talent. Armada won the Genesis 2 Singles and Genesis 4 Doubles tournaments, which guarantees he will be stiff competition.

ZeRo - A professional Super Smash Bros. for Wii U player from Chile. Some have noted that the Switch would be flawless for a port of the hit brawler Dragon Ball FighterZ - and it'd make a kick-ass announcement at EVO 2018 in a couple of months.

Last, but certainly not least in the Super Smash Bros. Melee player from Florida and known as the best Samus in the world. He was the champion at GENESIS 5.

Now we come to Plup, a Smash Bros. master from the United States who adores Super Metroid. He was the runner-up at EVO 2015, losing to ZeRo.

Bandai Namco will be presenting its line-up of games at E3 in just a few weeks, so we should be able to get the lowdown on the first titles coming to the Switch at that point.

Lucky - A professional Super Smash Bros. Melee player from California and well known as one of the best Fox mains on the West Coast.

Lucky - A professional Super Smash Bros. As the EVO 2014 champion, Mango will provide matches that keep audiences on the edge of their seats. It wouldn't be Nintendo's fashion if they didn't theatrically unveil details about the new Super Smash game at this year's E3 2018 alongside a Smash-ing tournament of champions!

Being listed in the GameStop system doesn't mean a game will be out this year, just that you can pre-order it, so possible contenders for being amongst the 15 are Wii U port Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, a new Fire Emblem, Bayonetta 3, and the still unnamed new Yoshi game. "Also, every single Smash Wii U player is worldwide and from a different place, so perhaps they wanted to represent how Smash Bros.is a global game that gets everyone together, no matter where you are from or what games you play". Who these guests are, or what they would be doing at the event, is still a mystery, however.
