Smash Bros. Tournament in Japan Features…amiibo

Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS tournaments aren’t really any surprise to the gaming community. As soon as the titles were released, tournaments and contests were being held all over. What isn’t nearly as commonplace is an amiibo tournament, and that is exactly what will be happening in Japan.

Could this have begun due to the Fox amiibo nearly winning a tournament last year? Probably not
Could this event have been due to the Fox amiibo nearly winning a tournament in the U.S. last year? Probably not

The event seems to be a simple promotion for amiibo and the usage of the little figurines in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. There is no prize money, and the grand prize is an amiibo; every participant will also receive an A4-sized clear file. Perhaps western gamers will start seeing some of these tournaments as well. The tournament will be held this Saturday, March 14.
