Nintendo has revealed plenty of information on their Smash Invitational tournament. The tournament competators are as follows:

Lilan “milktea” Chen
Hugo “HugS” Gonzalez 
Ken “LiquidKen” Hoang
Daniel “LiquidKDJ” Jung
Neha “Lilo” Chhetri 
Hendrick “DJNintendo” Pilar
Kris “Toph” Aldenderfer
Sam “PeachyHime” McNaughton
Juan “Crs. Hungrybox” Debiedma
Kevin “PewPewU” Toy
Kevin “EG PPMD” Nanney 
Dakota “TheRapture” Lasky
Cristin “Crismas” DesSaro 
McCain “MacD” LaVelle
Masaya “aMSa” Chikamoto 
Gonzalo “CT ZeRo” Barrios

The show will be hosted by Geoff Keighley with commentary by Wynton “Prog” Smith. The first few rounds of the tourney aren’t what you’d expect. They will be four player, four stock free-for-alls with items on, and the top two players advance. Only the grand final will be one on one, items off on Battlefield. The matches will be live at E3 for the first 3000 guests who line up, but you can also watch it on Nintendo’s Twitch.


Don’t care about that? Well there’s still good news for Smash fans. Nintendo will be releasing a GameCube controller adapter for Wii U around the launch of Smash 4. The third party controller will still be available, but this will solve wireless latency issues for serious competitors. No word on the GameCube controllers working on other games, but I see this as the perfect chance for Nintendo to announce GameCube Virtual Console.
