Nintendo fans will find plenty to enjoy at the Evolution Championship Series (EVO) 2019 fighting game tournament held Aug. 2-4 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV. This is the first year the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game for the Nintendo Switch system will be featured at EVO, and it will be the final game on the main stage to close out the event on Aug. 4, Sunday night.

Nintendo is also sending the four winners of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Open June 2019 tournament to compete in EVO. Players RamonM64, Wisdom, Seth and Heeew bested all online competitors and will now match their skills against other top players at EVO.

Additionally, on the first two days of EVO (Aug. 2-3), Nintendo will have a booth on the show floor called the Nintendo Zone, where visitors can take a break from the action and play the Super Mario Maker 2, Tetris® 99 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate games for Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Zone will be open to all who are attending EVO, and everyone who visits may receive some commemorative items while supplies last, such as a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate pin or a Nintendo Switch tote bag and other fun Nintendo items.
