Nintendo and e-sports group ESL have teamed up to host a Splatoon tournament in Europe. This would normally be a mildly interesting story, but the prize kicks things up a notch: the winner gets a Nintendo NX.
The tournament is officially named Go4Splatoon and starts this upcoming Sunday, September 11. This is the sign-up page for anyone interested (that’s located in Europe). The tournament will see a new champion over the next six months, all of which will compete in the grand final which will happen sometime in 2017. All members of the winning team get an NX.
We don’t even know what it is, but some people can already get it. The system releases in March 2017, before the tournament’s finals.
