eSports and competitive gaming continue to grow, but often it’s the entry point that keeps some players away. Starting in February, Nintendo will launch two online qualifying events to give players of all experience levels a chance to participate in a video game tournament.

The Splatoon 2 North America Inkling Open 2019 and the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate North America Open 2019  are competitive tournaments for the respective Nintendo Switch games. The open qualifiers (played from home) lead up to a final event at the PAX East video game conference in Boston on March 30.
