Watch Nintendo’s Smash Bros. 3DS Tournament and Live Stream From Comic-Con at 2:30PM ET

Make sure your body is ready.

[UPDATE] As of 2:50PM ET, they’re still playing the Wii U version on stream, but they showed the 3DS version before, so it should be back when the tournament is ready to start.

Nintendo is making strides in not seeming so behind the times with its use of the Internet lately—at least as it relates to public relations. Their Twitch live stream and Smash Bros. Wii U tournament from E3 2014 was a huge success, and they’re replicating it for Comic-Con with Smash Bros. 3DS. You can watch all of their streaming coverage and the tournament right here starting at 2:30PM ET.

Here are the games and some of the special events you can expect to see at the Con from Nintendo:

Nintendo 3DS

  • Super Smash Bros.
  • Pokémon Art Academy
  • Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
  • Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal
  • THEATRHYTHM FINAL FANTASY CURTAIN CALL
  • Shovel Knight
  • Siesta Fiesta

Wii U

  • Super Smash Bros.
  • Hyrule Warriors
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
  • Yoshi’s Woolly World
  • Mario Kart 8
  • Bayonetta 2
  • Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric
  • Just Dance 2015
  • Skylanders Trap Team
  • Shovel Knight
  • 1001 Spikes
  • Guacamelee Super Turbo Championship Edition

They’ll also be showing off the Amiibo NFC figurines, hosting a Mario Kart 8 tournament, and screening the animated movie Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, though you’ll have to be at the Con in person to catch the screening.

Additionally, they just dumped tons of screenshots from the 3DS and Wii U versions of Smash Bros. on the Internet the other day that you can pore over for more details. Here are just a few of them:
