Today, Red Bull has announced a new Smash Tournament for later this year.
The Red Bull Smash Gods and Gatekeepers tournament is scheduled to take place this September 2-3 and will be a chance for fans to take on the Super Smash Bros. Gods themselves. In attendance will be William “Leffen” Hjelte, Joseph “Mango” Marquez, Justin “Plup” McGrath, Zac “SFAT” Cordoni, Daniel “ChuDat” Rodriguez, Justin “Wizzrobe” Hallett, Jeffrey “Axe” Williamson, and Jason “Mew2king” Zimmerman.
The tournament will start with double elimination and then roll into Crew Battles. The final day has been deemed “Judgement Day,” and will feature battles lead by the Gods and Gatekeepers. Those who make it out of the double elimination portion of things will be known as the “Chosen.” Players in the top 32 will be placed into a drawing for 16 open slots in the Captains’ Crew. The others will play in a standalone GodForsaken tournament.
Judgement Day is when all the Crews drafted from the day before go against each other to see who wins it all. For more information or to register for the event, you can go here.
