Nintendo successfully kicked off their first ever ARMS Grand Prix in Nagoya last Sunday, 22 October 2017, despite a heavy typhoon and it was a blast. In a Japanese Nintendo Blog post, Nintendo showed off a couple of pictures highlighting the event.
Participants both young and old gathered for the tournament qualifiers and fought for a chance to be in the Finals in December.
After a series of matches, the Nagoya leg heated up with the final 16. Even a panel of commentators was set up to commentate on the fierce fights.
In the end, one player was left, “Tofu” player, and he will stand a chance to be the grand champion at the finals this December. You can view the last few matches in the youtube video below. Also, if you’re interested and understand Japanese, you can head down to Nintendo’s blog post here.
