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
