Nintendo fans – don’t miss BIG Fest 2018!

BIG Fest is just around the corner and it will be a must-attend event for all Nintendo enthusiasts.

We recently announced that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming to BIG Fest! There will be four pods set up with the upcoming instalment ready to play. These pods will be open to all attendees, so, if you love Super Smash Bros. don’t miss this rare opportunity to play the newest game in the series two months before it’s released to the public. If that isn’t your bag, don’t worry. There will be two other pods with different Nintendo games available for all to play, including the brand new Super Mario Party!

We will also be running the Scottish Esports League Season 1 finals of a number of popular Nintendo games at the event. Watch the best players in Scotland, plus some from further afield, battle it out to become our first SEL champions in ARMS, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2. What’s more, Nintendo has provided us with some excellent prizes to give away to our top competitors.
