Despite who might or might not consider video games can count as sports, a lot of games have clever online followings and flourishing communities, and a rest of a universe is starting to take notice. While athletes in earthy sports are competing during a 2016 Olympics in Rio, a few video games—and some tip players—will join them for a Rio 2016 eGames Showcase.

It’s not quite a same as being partial of a Olympics, though it’s still good to see rival gaming get some approval alongside them, during least. The showcase will be hold by a International eGames Committee and embody a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) game Smite, as good as a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament. The new Smash Bros. pretension has already become a tip offered entrance in a array yet (counting a 3DS and Wii U versions together), and a Wii U chronicle has finally unseated Melee as a array entrance that sole a tip suit of units compared to a series of people who owned a complement that played it.

After also leading a comparison kin in series of entrants in their particular largest tournaments (Evo 2016 for both of them), streamer to a Olympics is a good reward for a newest Smash version. It’s also a reward for some of a game’s tip players and commentators, who will get to attend in Rio alongside a game. Shoryuken reports that Larry “Larry Lurr” Holland, Elliot “Ally” Cardoza-Oyarce (who won Evo 2016), and Leonardo “MK Leo” Lopez, among others, will contest in a general event, and Richard “Keitaro” King Jr. and Maximillian “Max Ketchum” Krchmar will hoop a explanation and compare breakdowns.

For those of us incompetent to make it to Brazil in person, a two-day showcase will be live streamed Aug 15 and 16, with a Smash contest on a 16th at 11AM internal time (10AM ET).
