Nintendo Kicks Off E3 2018 with Splatoon and Smash Bros. World Championships

E3 is quickly approaching and Nintendo have already started to reveal some of their plans for Gamer Christmas. Nintendo will kick off E3 with two highly intense tournaments. The Super Smash Bros. Invitational and the Splatoon 2 World Championships will go live on the 11th and 12th June 2018. If you aren’t at E3, never fear as Nintendo will be streaming the action live on their YouTube and Twitch channels.

The Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 will bring a specially invited group of Smash players and pit them against each other on the recently announced Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. This is likely the first time gameplay will be showcased to the world, so it should definitely be interesting to follow.

The Splatoon 2 World Championships will take the winners from the Splatoon European Championships, as well as winners from a soon to be announced online open tournament (hosted by BattleFly) for the US and Canada. There will also be open tournaments for Austrailia/New Zealand, and Japan. They will then go head to hear for an all out Inkling war at E3.

Check out the full press release after the break!

If you haven’t sprung into ARMS yet, now’s your chance with 33% off the title.

With over 140 titles receiving some decent discounts, maybe you’ll find a new hidden gem in the vast selection of eShop games.

Top Secret Sonic Racer R’s Revving Tease

SEGA was in attendance at the SXSW gaming panel over the weekend, and while closing up, the company had something to tease.

Other than that teaser and the fact SEGA have said it is not a sequel (sorry Sonic All Stars Racing fans), we have nothing to work from at the moment. Hopefully more details should reveal themselves by E3!

NintyBuzz is Back Online!

Hello buzzers!

Today I thought I would let everyone know that NintyBuzz has now moved to a dedicated server, previously we were on a shared server.

But what does this mean?

Essentially the new server is a lot more secure, especially with the added SSL certificate. We have also done a bit of a cleanup behind the scenes, which means there should be faster loading times and less down time. Before there was constant MySQL errors, but hopefully the new server will be preventing this.


Before I go, I know it is a bit premature, but this years E3 Hub is now up and running, preparing for the ultimate gamer event in only two months time (and a bit). Expect more details over the coming weeks for the schedule and more!

That’s it for now

Until next time
Keep on buzzin’!
