Nintendo Launches New Competitive Gaming Twitter Account

Nintendo launched a new Twitter page, Nintendo Versus, which suggests Nintendo plans to support their game's competitive scenes from now on.

Earlier today. Nintendo launched a new Twitter page called Nintendo Versus. The page’s focus is on competitive gaming for Nintendo games. The account will start by posting updates about the invitational tournaments for ARMS, Splatoon 2, and Pokken Tournament DX that will be taking place during E3 next week.

One would hope this means that Nintendo will continue to support and host competitive events for their games into the future. With the company’s official support, the competitive scenes for these games could go bigger and last longer than they would have with just the fans by themselves.

Competitive gaming began rising in popularity years ago with MOBAs like League of Legends  and Dota leading the charge. Nowadays you’d be hard-pressed to find a multiplayer game without a competitive mode, aside from party games.

Nintendo games are no exception. Long before its games had official in-game competitive modes, Super Smash Brothers grew an especially large competitive scene. For years Nintendo seemed neutral about, even against, the idea of its games having such a hardcore eSports scene. But this new account could be a good sign that Nintendo wants to support their game’s competitive side .
