Are Nintendo trying to dominate the eSports scene? It sure feels like it with games like ARMS, Splatoon 2 and even Pokkén Tournament DX coming to Nintendo Switch and now Nintendo are taking it to the next level.


Nintendo of America has created a new Nintendo Versus Twitter account, which NoA will manage and is described as being “Your destination for Nintendo social competitive updates!” Being a new account it only has a few tweets at the time being that are all E3 focused, but it has revealed the line-up of invitees for the 2017 Pokkén Tournament DX Invitational and put out the following tweets:



NRG Nairo

Stephanie Patrick

JD Witherspoon
