In recent weeks we've written about 'The Gauntlet', a team-based format that aims to provide a new twist to competitive Smash Bros. gaming. It utilises the 8-player Smash mode in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U; you can get the full lowdown in our extensive feature and breakdown of this event.

Organised by S.O.S. Gamers in New York, this Charity eSports Invitational will have four teams from the Tri-State area battling it out to showcase a format that aims to make teamwork a key component in the Smash Bros. scene.

All of the action from Xeno Zero in New York can be followed below (courtesy of 8WayRun) - it kicks off at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern / 11pm UK / midnight CET.

Ahead of a Summer of major eSport events, it'll be interesting to see whether this format can gain momentum and interest from the Smash Bros. community.
