If you're going to be in the Los Angeles area on June 10th and would like to check out the action in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Wii, Nintendo invites you to check out the Super Smash Bros. Invitational.  Nintendo has selected sixteen highly skilled Super Smash Bros. players who will gather at the NOKIA Theater L.A. in Los Angeles to compete in the latest installment in the franchise to see who will emerge victorious on the big stage.  While the event will be played live in front of thousands of spectators and fans, don't worry if you can't attend in person as the event will also be live-streamed on Twitch's E3 channel and Nintendo's Twitch channel.

Oh, and if you do plan to attend in person and want a chance at front row priority seating, make sure to dress up as your favorite Smash Bros. characters.  The event is being filmed and photographed so your costume might be seen around the world on Twitch and YouTube.
