Brawl tournaments before release

Brawl tournaments before release

Looks like a good number of people in North America will get the chance to play Super Smash Bros Brawl before it's even out.

In the run-up to its launch, SSBB tournaments are being held in four major cities in the US. These tourneys will hit Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston and finally New York (where there will be a special midnight launch).

256 people can take part in each tournament, all of them will get a $10 Best Buy gift card. The four regional winners will duke it out in New York for a chance at the #1 prize. The grand prize is a custom designed Wii covered in crystals (not Chaos Emeralds), a home theater system and a copy of Brawl.

If you're interested in taking part here are the dates and locations:

February 16th - 3pm
Orpheum Theater, 842 S. Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90014

February 23rd - 2pm
Ten15 Folsom, 1015 Folsom St., San Francisco, CA 94103

March 1st - 3pm
Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Olden Hall, 100 Institute Road, Worcester, MA 01609

March 8th - 5pm
Best Buy (NOHO), 622 Broadway, New York, NY 10012

Dangit I don't live in those places. Why can't they hold it in someplace like seattle?

SSBR said:

Why couldn't they put it somewhere in Indiana!?


Scooby Jew said:

Nothing near me, but whatever. Let's just say I already have things under control.


Crimson said:

Aww, no Chicago? It woulda made up for that concert I can't get tickets to. Oh well. I'd probably lose anyway.

This sucks. Am with you guys. Why can't they have it in my little town. I hate living in no mans land.

Miami's a major city, but apparently not major enough.


Karim said:

Do we have to enter all of them from the beginning because I'm in new york and I'm wondering if I could just jump into the new york one.

i need a wiieww said:

UK is English speaking but we have to wait for the game to be translated in french- german- spanish- italian and all that. I mean why can't we have the US version!? It's not as if it's any different, same with this tournament. Sorry I just didn't know where to post this little rant.
