GSA and VGBootCamp just announced their PACE Speedrun Convention, which will take place on May 21th through May 24th 2020. They revealed a Super Mario Maker 2 Versus Mode tournament as well. The tournament will have a minimum price pool of $3000, so don’t expect anyone to go easy on their competitors.
There will be some big name players participating, like Thabeast721, LilKirbs14, and of course the king of Versus Mode iiPk, who consistently has 5+ characters in the top 10 of the official Versus Mode leaderboard.
Like in previous events, there will be a 4v4 blind relay race. No word yet on who will be creating the levels, but they’re usually really high quality, so it should be a lot of fun to watch (and play later).
Mario Masters Colloseum 2019 just came to an end, raising over $186,000 for Direct Relief in 4 days. The previous record was held by The Runaway Guys ($183,000). Huge shoutouts to GrandPOObear and the Mario/gaming community for organizing this great event, and for giving so much to charity.
If you missed any of it, check out our Mario Masters Colloseum 3 page for links to the VODs. Edit: The Relay Race levels have been added to this page as well!
The game isn’t even out yet, but we have our first SMM2 tournament! It’s still a while from now (October 24-27), but it’s great to see there’s so much hype for the new game. We already have some big name signups like ThaBeast721, LordPickleKing and Brunastico, and more are probably following in the coming days.
