Nintendo crowned champions in two separate tournaments today during the E3 video game trade show in Los Angeles.

In the 2017 Pokkén Tournament DX Invitational, four teams battled it out in a crew battle, with the winning team of YouTube star MatPat and pro-gaming player Allister Singh each taking home a framed Pokkén Tournament DX art piece signed by Tsunekazu Ishihara, president and CEO of The Pokémon Company, and developers from BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.

Later, during the 2017 ARMS Open Invitational, four expert gamers competed in a single-elimination tournament against four E3 attendees. The winner Jamal “Zerk” Mackey, an E3 attendee that qualified for the tournament in the Nintendo booth today, received the coveted 2017 ARMS Open Invitational Belt. He also got the chance to face-off against the Kosuke Yabuki, the producer of ARMS, in an exhibition match.
