As of 11:30am Pacific / 2:30pm Eastern / 7:30pm UK / 8:30pm CET on 1st August, there are still some places available in our NL For Glory 01 and #FANFIGHTER01AUG Tourneys, with details below. Sorry, NLife For Fun 01 is full up!
The big Super Smash Bros. version 1.1.0 update is here, and in addition to DLC outfits and stages the Wii U version has two key new features. One is the option to upload replays directly to YouTube, which is fine, but the high profile addition is the online Tourney Mode.
We've already produced our guide to getting the most out of Tourneys, though the reaction to the functionality on offer has been mixed. There's frustration at what's not included in particular, but nevertheless we're still going to run some Tourneys for you, our lovely community.
We've set up two competitions that, within the limitations of the mode - nope, we can't arrange 1v1 - hopefully cater to different audiences. One event is running all weekend and is basically a chance for everyone to jump on for some silly fun, and the other will be more focused for those that want to prove their skills. In both cases it's first-come-first-served up to the 100 player max, and each will have a password so that those entering are most likely to be part of the NLife community.
So, let's go.

But wait, there's more! Over on the Nintendo Life YouTube channel our video man Alex will play with you lovely people in a special Fan Fighter tournament which is just before our 'pro' tournament. The bonus is that taking part could give you a starring role in an episode of the show, plus you can get beaten up by Alex (he's pretty good at Smash Bros.). So, details.
