Tournament:Smash Bros. Fighting Battle: Smash Bros. Meijin Deciding Game
Smash Bros. Fighting Battle: Smash Bros. Meijin Deciding Game was a series of Super Smash Bros. tournaments held on August 27th-29th, 1999, by Nintendo at Space World 1999 in Tokyo, Japan. They were the first official Smash Bros. tournaments.
The morning of the first day was a series of qualifiers. These events were single-elimination four-player free-for-alls with items on. 10,000 players participated in the competition; after three rounds with 2,048 players per tournament, only 32 remained. These players were then invited to play in the quarterfinals, reducing the number to 8 players, then to 2, who would play in a 1-on-1 stock match for the finals. A final match was held twice per day: one for the morning, and one for the afternoon. Descriptions of the matches were written for the Space World website, and the winners of the tournaments were interviewed after their matches ended. Series creator Masahiro Sakurai was also present.
