PALMDALE – Vincent Hoang was the last person standing — or actually sitting — after doing video battle in the Palmdale City Library’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament held yesterday (May 1) in the Library’s reading room.
For his victory, Hoang earned himself a $50 Target gift card. P.J. Vallarta finished second and took home a $30 gift card.
“We had an amazing turnout — over 100 people showed up for the competition,” said Palmdale City Library Director Thomas Vose. “We had to cap the tournament at 64 players because of space and time constraints.”
Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Nintendo Wii is an extremely popular fighting game uniting the characters from numerous Nintendo franchises. It is rated “T” for “Teen.”
“Keep an eye out for the next one!” Vose said.
The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm; Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.
