    I re-read the prize list like 10 times, looking for the Nintendo Switch... Still, this looks interesting.

    Exciting! I can't wait, Splatoon definitely deserves more competitive attention.

    Really wish NA also had the opportunity to win an NS, though.

    A quick question before the series begins: Who will be streaming for the spectators, if anyone?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I think I have the answer. Still would love to see a central dedicated channel for this series, though.
