4 people will win a Nintendo NX for being really good at

first_img <> Competing in weekly tournaments to qualify as one of the best teams, then winning the monthly tournaments to pave the way to the Grand Final sounds like a huge commitment of time and effort. Then you have to win the final! I doubt any of the teams will be doing this purely to get an NX, it will just be a nice extra bonus for winning.You can be sure that by the time the Grand Final kicks off in March we’ll know everything there is to know about what the NX is. That is, unless it gets delayed for some reason… NX Revealed as the Nintendo SwitchNintendo NX launches December 31 for $450 according to UK retailer We still don’t know exactly what the Nintendo NX console/handheld is, although we have a very good idea. But we can at least confirm it definitely exists as Nintendo has decided to offer one as 1st prize in a Splatoon tournament.The tournament in question is being jointly run by Nintendo and the ESL Gaming Network, and it’s going to be extremely hard to win. Called GoSplatoon Europe, the tournament consists of 6 months of 4on4 Splatoon matches.Each month the 8 best teams in Europe (determined by weekly tournaments) come together to compete with the winner being crowned best team of the month, adding to their overall GoSplatoon points total, and getting a load of Splatoon merchandise. Then at the end of the 6 months there’s a Grand Final, which will see the winning team go home with a Nintendo NX (hopefully one for each member of the team).This all ties in with the release of the NX next March, with that Grand Final likely tying in nicely with the console’s launch and the extra marketing opportunity it will offer. I’d also hazard a guess that a Splatoon game may be one of the surprise launch titles for the NX. Makes sense, right? Stay on targetlast_img read more
