During an insane singles quarter-final match for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, Zackray broke down after losing a close battle with Leonardo ‘MKLeo’ Perez at Super Smash Con 2019.

August 11 is Super Smash Con’s final day, as the tournament wraps up with Smash Bros Ultimate’s 1v1 singles category. The competition is fierce, and some of the best players around the world are competing to take the top spot.

During the quarter-finals, a close match between Zackray and MKLeo came down to the wire, and left one of the contestants on the floor, overwhelmed with emotions.

The Japanese pro started off strong against Leo, taking the first match with Wolf. However, his opponent came punching back, as he took two matches in a row with Joker from ‘Persona 5’.

This led Zackray to change his tactics, as he switched to R.O.B. and it paid off, as he won the fourth match to tie it up. In the final battle, both were over 100% health and trading blows, when Joker landed an upsmash that ended the epic brawl.

Zackray eventually rose to his feet, and was greeted with more applause. Despite losing, he put on one of the best matches in the entire tournament, and proved he’s one of the best competitors in the Smash community worth cheering for.

How to get physical Smash Ultimate fighter invitations with My Nintendo

Smash Ultimate fans wanting to send an iconic invitation to a friend or family member can now get their chance as physical envelopes can now be shipped through My Nintendo.

A common motif in Smash is characters receiving an “invitation” with the game’s logo to indicate they had been chosen to join the star-studded fighting game.

This has been seen in many DLC fighter announcements such as Terry Bogard’s and Min Min’s trailers where multiple characters fight over the invitation with whoever receives it being added to the roster.

As such, the invitations have become an iconic piece of Smash and video game history, which is saying a lot considering they’re just pieces of paper.

The Smash invitation has become a series icon.

Be that as it may, fans can now earn these invitations through My Nintendo for 400 Platinum Points. Each set contains three white, green and blue cards, envelopes and stickers with the Smash logo.

In order to get the invitations, you’ll have to follow these steps:

1) Sign in to your Nintendo Account.
2) Redeem your Platinum Points for the item you’d like to get. You will receive a promo code.
3) Select “Access Now” to visit
4) Select “Add to cart.”
5) Enter the code that you received in the pop-up.
6) Complete your transaction and your item will be shipped to you!

The cards come in white, blue and green.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a limited-time item so be sure to grab it while you can. Interestingly, the reward code will expire on March 8, 2021.

The expiry is note-worthy as it could be yet another sign pointing towards the release of DLC fighter 9. As Dexerto has previously reported, there are plenty of indicators so far suggesting that the next character will be released in March.

The next wave of amiibo consisting of Byletyh, Terry and Banjo is scheduled for March and in the past, all amiibo releases have coincided with a DLC fighter reveal.

Who could the final three fighters be?

March is also when the Tales Of Festival will begin, and signs have pointed to a Tales of Symphonia representative potentially being the next DLC fighter, so this is just one other thing to keep in mind.

In any case, be sure to pick up your own Smash invitations so you can invite whoever you want to the game while you still can.
