Nintendo Announces Kid Icarus: Uprising Multiplayer Tournament
Battle foes nationwide to win exclusive (and very mysterious) prizes.
Nintendo wants you to know that Kid Icarus: Uprising is a big deal. That means trailers, a plastic stand, hard to find AR cards and now, a nationwide multiplayer tournament.
The event begins this Thursday, March 8 at the San Francisco GameStop located at 151 Powell Street. There will be open gameplay from 10:30AM to 5:00PM. Then the tournament goes from 5:00PM to 8:00PM.
Win, and you may earn a trip to New York City to compete in the finals.
That said, Nintendo also plans to hold competitions at GameStop locations in Orlando, Fla. (March 11), Los Angeles (March 15) and New York City (March 22).
Turns out, we're at a hotel right around the corner from that SF location. Time to strap on our sandals and dominate.
