It's been an exciting E3 for Nintendo so far and last night saw epic battles in both the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 tournament and also the Splatoon 2 World Championship.

It didn't come as too much of a surprise that ZeRo of Chile was crowned the champion of the Super Smash Bros. Invitational. After all, he's a longtime player of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. With what seemed like relative ease, ZeRo defeated seven other top-ranked Super Smash Bros. players from around the world to successfully defend his title, earned at Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Invitational back in 2014.

The shift to competing on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate did not phase ZeRo, as he destroyed the competition. In the final devastating match, ZeRo used Mario to defeat runner-up MkLeo of Mexico, who played as Sonic. It's official, Mario is better than Sonic!

Moving on to the Splatoon 2 World Championship, the GG BoyZ of Japan emerged triumphant in what was an epic and very colourful battle. Made up of Taiji, etona, yamamicchi and Dynamon, the GG BoyZ inked their way to glory by defeating BackSquids, the German team representing Europe in the competition.
