Smash Summit 3 is going to be huge and we're starting to see the invitation list fill up.
The full invitation lineup for Smash Summit 3 may not be filled just year, but it has now been confirmed that both Mafia and S2J will be attending the event. This brings the total confirmed player list to 12.
Mafia had a shot at attending last year's summit but he fell out short and was eliminated from voting. This year will be Mafia's first Smash Summit even so we can expect him to be incredibly pumped for the event.
So far this year Mafia has placed top 2 at the Apex 2016 event and had a top twelve finish at Super Smash Con earlier this year.
On the other side of things we have S2J who has been at Smash Summit before. In fact, with an invitation to Smash Summit 3, he will have attended every single Summit since its beginning. So far S2J has represented himself at a variety of events this year, but his best performances were a top 6 finish at EVO 2016 and a top 8 finish at Pound 2016. Hopefully S2J will now have another shot at getting better results at Smash Summit 3 later this year.
There are still four more spots open for the event, which will make a total of 16 players to attend from November 3 to November 6 in Los Angeles, California. Below the current invitation list for Smash Summit 3 has been posted.
