Meet the eight challengers for SMASH MASTERS by @SuperSmashCon (#SSC18)
Over the course of the past four days, Super Smash Con, a Nintendo fan event that is recognized as the largest Smash Bros event in the world, revealed the eight Smashers taking part in a special Smash-centric event called Smash Masters.
What is Smash Masters? As followers of the Super Smash Bros franchise will know, there are currently four iterations in the series. Each title is as different as night and day from the other games, as are the players that support each title. For instance, one only has to look at the Melee and Smash Wii-U communities to note the different players representing the best of the best.
With multiple Smash titles in existence, the question of who is able to master all four Smash games has become a popular topic among Smashers. And so Super Smash Con became the home of the Smash Masters event, which was created in 2016.
In Smash Masters, up to eight competitors, all of whom are decided by direct invitation, will compete against one another in a special format that puts all of their skills in every single Smash Bros title to the test. The player who wins more Smash games than the other will proceed to the next round, and this format continues until the Smash Masters Champion is crowned. Normal tournament rules for all Smash games are used for each set.
The Smash titles featured in Smash Masters are the following:
- Smash 64 (Nintendo 64)
- Smash Melee (Nintendo GameCube)
- Smash Brawl (Nintendo Wii)
- Smash Wii-U (Nintendo Wii-U)
Thus far, two Smash Masters have been crowned. In 2016, Echo Fox Mew2King took home the victory, and in 2017, Wizzrobe emerged victorious. However, Wizzrobe will not be returning to defend his title this year, which means that either Mew2King will seize back the throne or a new champion will be recognized in 2018.
See below to learn which eight Smashers will be present at Super Smash Con's Smash Masters invitational this year.
The lineup for Smash Masters features a fascinating blend of the greatest talents that shine in the Melee and Smash Wii-U communities, each of whom have such fascinating histories that would require novels to highlight. But of course, as far as the worldwide Smash community is concerned, there can be only one Smash Master.
Along with Smash Masters, Super Smash Con will feature open brackets for all of the existing Smash titles. As of this post, approximately 2,000 entrants in total have registered for the event, with the majority of them going towards Melee and Wii-U. See below for an update on the registration numbers!
