NGM (Nintendo Gamers Malta) started out as a Facebook group back in 2010 simply as a Nintendo fan group, but as our numbers slowly grew, so did our scope. Starting from 2011 we attended the Malta Comic Con for the first time, and we were present for almost all of the years that followed. NGM has also branched out to other social media platforms, with an Instagram page and a lively Discord server to keep the local Nintendo community growing.
As is our tradition for these events, we host tournaments for Pokémon, Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Tournament – Saturday 28th October – 2:00 p.m.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet VGC Tournament – Saturday 28th October – 4:00 p.m.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Amateur) – Sunday 29th October – 1:30 p.m.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Pro) – Sunday 29th October – 4:00 p.m.
Those wishing to join the tournaments are strongly encouraged to bring their own controllers. For the Pokémon VGC tournament, all competitors will be required to bring a Nintendo Switch console, a copy of Pokémon Scarlet or Violet, and a team that fits the requirements for the tournament.
An entry fee will be required to join the tournaments. 3D printed trophies will be up for grabs, as well as cash pool prizes for some tournaments such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Pro)
