Without the game publisher's active collaboration, Nintendo, Twitch and Smash.gg have joined forces and will be partners in this brand new Smash World Tour. The community has been waiting for this for a long time, and it's finally here after an announcement posted on the Youtube channel VGBootCamp, which is well known within the Smash Bros. community. $250,000 will be shared between all the players who enter the competition.

The circuit will start more on March 13 with the CEO Dreamland, then others like Pound, Super Smash Con or Get On My Level. Nintendo is still not part of the loop, as one of the members of the organization pointed out.

"As of now, The Smash World Tour is not associated or affiliated with Nintendo or Nintendo of America – though we hope to team up with them in the future! One of our goals with the Tour is to offer a unified way for Nintendo to directly support the competitive scene.”
