Watch Nintendo's Adorably Brutal 12-And-Under Smash Bros. Tournament [Update: All Done]

Illustration for article titled Watch Nintendos Adorably Brutal 12-And-Under iSmash Bros./i Tournament [Update: All Done]

Nintendo is at San Diego Comic-Con, where they’ve gathered 64 young children to battle for your amusement in the most kid-friendly competitive game possible. It’s basically My First Smash Bros. Tournament, and it’s darling. (Autoplay warning.)


If you’ve watched a Smash Bros. Wii U tournament and had trouble following the action, this is the event to watch. Commentators VikkiKitty and JCDotFace are explaining every step of the process, from whatever it is players do with the rock-paper-scissors thing to something about chess. Honestly I’m not paying too much attention to them, too tickled to see names like Kaithlyn and Autumn on the screen instead of the normal convoluted screen names.

Or maybe Kaithlyn is a screen name. If not, I’m stealing it. Watch these kids play.


Update: The tournament is over, and a winner has been crowned. It came down to a spectacular battle between Cloud and Little Mac, which you can see in the stream archive below.
