Nintendo is set to launch a 'European Online Challenge' for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with the event running from 18:00 to 21:00 (CEST) / 17:00 to 20:00 (BST) on May 20th, 2022.

The event allows participants to compete in 1 vs 1 matches via the 'Online Tourney' menu; players will be limited to two lives with matches set to last up to 5 minutes apiece. Stages will be limited to Battlefield and Omega variants with items, hazards, and Final Smash meters turned off; so this will be a true test of your Smash skills.

After the event concludes, participants within the top ten of the leaderboard will be award 2500 gold points for My Nintendo, with 1000 points awarded to the remaining top 100 participants. Winners will be announced by Nintendo on May 30th.

In the terms and conditions laid out by Nintendo, it states that participants must have an active Nintendo Account registered to one of the eligible countries (check out Nintendo's announcement for a full list) along with access to Nintendo Switch Online. If players change their country settings during the event or any time up to the retrieval of prizes, they will be disqualified.
