The UK's biggest games event EGX kicks off tomorrow and as usual Nintendo Life will be on the Nintendo UK stand running special tournaments throughout the four days.

Two years ago we hosted the StreetPass Zone and held 3DS-focused competitions, while last year it was the UK Mario Kart 8 championship. This year it's all about Nintendo's smash-hit online shooter Splatoon.

We'll be holding regular daily tournaments throughout EGX 2015 as well as freeplay sessions, giving you and your friends the chance to earn the acclaim of your peers and bag some amazing prizes. All of this action will be overseen and MC'd by none other than Nintendo Life's very own Games Media Award-nominated YouTube star, Alex Olney.

Daily Tournament

The daily tournament will take place in three one-hour sessions:

  • Round 1 - Qualifying between (11:00-12:00)
  • Round 2 - Semifinals (12:30-13:30)
  • Round 3 - Finals (14:30-15:30)

Feature Battles

In addition to the daily tournament schedule, we'll also be holding special 'feature battles' to take place alongside the finals in Round 3.

We'll be keeping the teams under wraps, so check back each day to see who is facing who - there may be a few famous faces among them...


These are still to be confirmed, but you can rest assured that they're going to be pretty special.

How To Enter

Fancy your chances? Then head over to the Nintendo UK stand and put down your name. Eight teams of four players - that's 32 competitors in total - can sign up for each day, so make sure you're quick as slots will get snapped up very quickly.
