There's nothing to get the blood flowing like a bit of competition. Here soon, college football fans will be pit against each other outside of the stadium. Introducing the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Tailgate Tour.

According to a press release by Nintendo, the game company has partnered with the Wendy's College Tailgate Tour to bring a Super Smash Bros Ultimate setup to various football matchups and campuses this fall. It features a customized trailer, stocked with six different game stations and a large LED screen.
 

Many of our biggest fans are now in college and have memories growing up playing one of the games in the Super Smash Bros. series, said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of Americas Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. We want to bring Super Smash Bros. Ultimate directly to longtime and first-time players, and what better way than to combine two of college students favorite pastimes: video games and football.


Want to know when and where these event's will be taking place? We have the complete schedule right here:
  • Sept. 22 Stanford @ Oregon
  • Oct. 6 Alabama @ Arkansas
  • Oct. 13 Wisconsin @ Michigan
  • Oct. 20 Oklahoma @ TCU
  • Oct. 27 Clemson @ FSU
  • Nov. 3 South Carolina @ Ole Miss
  • Nov. 10 TCU @ West Virginia
  • Nov. 17 Miami @ Virginia Tech
  • Nov. 24 Michigan @ Ohio State
Participating players will be able to play Super Smash Bros Ultimate before launch as well as take part in impromptu tournaments. The winners will even be awarded various Smash Bros promotional items. With plenty of decorations and designs, it'll be a rare sight to see.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate releases on Nintendo Switch on December 7. For more information on the Tailgate Tour, visit the official website.
