Nintendo Play Day #2 at the Nexus including a Splatoon 2 tournament

Apologies for the delay in post everyone. There was unfortunately a problem with the domain and my site was temporarily down for almost a week. Since I’m back up though let’s kick things off with my second adventure to the Nintendo Play Day hosted at the Nexus in Randburg Johannesburg, South Africa.

Firstly if you’re in Johannesburg I highly recommend you attend the Nintendo Play Days. The event takes place on the first Saturday of every month and is hosted to promote the Nintendo brand and community in South Africa. It is unfortunately tied down to one venue at the moment which is the Nexus in Randburg, however the store holds a wide variety of Video Game, Anime and Comic Book merchandise so it is heaven on Earth.

The event hosted three main events and took place on the 5th of August, a week ago. A Mario Kart 8 Deluxe time trial, a Super Smash Bros tournament and the main event was the Splatoon 2 tournament, turf wars. Of course I tried my hand at all but alas my skills are no where near some of the other players but it was still tons of fun to compete. The Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros events offered attendees the chance to compete in a solo manner where as the Splatoon 2 tournament was a 4v4 event. Thankfully you did not need a team to enter the tournament and I was placed with other attendees on the day to form a 4 player squad.

Make sure to check out the video I took below of the venue as well as some Splatoon 2 action. The next Nintendo Play Day hasn’t yet been announced for the month of September 2017 but stay glued to their Facebook page as I suspect the next event will be on the 2nd of September 2017.

Please follow and share 🙂
