Nintendo are putting together a super-team for the upcoming Super Smash Bros Ultimate World Challenge Cup, already having signed three of the top players in the world. In what is a legitimate effort to run their own professional tournament circuit, Nintendo have signed MKLeo, Mr.R, and Nairo, three of the biggest names in Smash Bros to their dream team.
Nintendo have been making a concerted effort to establish their own professional tournament circuit for Super Smash Bros Ultimate. They are building a dream team for the upcoming Smash Bros World Challenge Cup, starting by signing three of the top players in the world, Leonardo “MKLeo” Lopez, Ramin “Mr.R” Delshad, and Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada.
Nintendo is designing their ultimate dream-team to compete against countries competing in the competition. The signing of Smash Bros Pro MKLeo alone would be enough to challenge any of the teams that have competed in similar events in the past. However, the pairing of the number 1 player in the world with 8th-ranked Nairo and 36th ranked Mr. R can only be a recipe for success.
Unless these three players are the only players on Nintendo’s super-team, this may turn into an unfair fight for the other nations competing in the Smash Bros World Challenge Cup. In recent years Team-Japan has been the dominant force in many of the Nintendo run Smash Bros Ultimate events. However, even Team-Japan who would normally be favourites will struggle to overcome Nintendo’s super-team who already looks unbeatable, despite having the likes of Sota “Zackray” Okada on their roster.
Teams for these Nintendo competitions usually have four spots on each roster, meaning teams have the opportunity to select a player before each round. This means there is still one spot available on the dream-team – which lucky player will join this ultimate trio?
The dream team already has players from Mexico, Europe, and North America signed up meaning Japan might be a likely choice for Nintendo to make. The likes of Shuto “Shuton” Moriya or Yuta “Abadango” Kawamura could be a smart choice especially with The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Challenge Cup taking place in Kyoto, Japan on Oct. 13 and 14 2019.
