E3 is getting ever closer, and Nintendo fans may be cautiously hoping for exciting things from the company this year. Nintendo of America has decided to give gamers a chance to enjoy the event for themselves, launching a 'Super Smash Bros. People's Challenger' contest.

The focus of the campaign is on the Super Smash Bros. Invitational, offering the winner the best seats in the house and the chance to take on one of the tournament winners. That's great, of course, but buried within the official rules are the enticing full details of the prize, which are as follows:

  • Flights for the winner and a guest to LA
  • Four nights in a hotel in LA
  • Two three day passes to E3
  • VIP tickets to the Super Smash Bros. Invitational
  • A chance to play against a winner of the Invitational

That's certainly an attractive prize, and to win all you need to do is upload a video to Instagram, details in the image below.

This is only open to residents of the U.S. and Canada, with Nintendo pegging the prize value at $1500; it's open now and closes on 27th May. The opportunity to go to E3 and play new Nintendo games is priceless though, right?
