UPDATED – Nintendo to Broadcast Nintendo Challenge Show during ComicCon


As well as holding a Smash Bros tournament at Comic Con they’ll also be hosting a live challenge show. The details:

On July 25 and July 26, Nintendo will stream Nintendo Challenge Live, a stage show hosted from the Nintendo Gaming Lounge that features intense tournament competition and awesome game-play challenges from some of the hottest upcoming games on Nintendo platforms. Fans can open their browsers to http://www.twitch.tv/nintendo to catch all of the action and stick around for hours to soak in all the festivities

Given the massive success of the Nintendo Live Tree House show from e3, and the Smash Bros tournament hosted there, it’s good to see them continuing with live events to promote their up coming titles.
