Nintendo is hosting a Super Smash Bros 3DS tournament at GameStop stores across the United States on October 4, the day after the game launches. Tournaments will be held at 16 stores across the country, including 15 GameStop locations in California, Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, North Carolina, New York, Washington, Florida, Georgia and Texas, plus the Nintendo World store in New York.

"Participants for the 64-player local tournaments on October 4 are selected on a first-come, first-served basis with no pre-registration required," Nintendo says in a press release. "Participants may bring their own Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS systems and/or Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS games to the tournaments, but are not required to do so."

Tournament winners will be flown out to the New York Nintendo World store on October 11 to compete in the Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS National Open Tournament. See the full list of GameStop stores hosting tournaments on October 4 in the press release below.
