If you're heading out to the E3 show floor this year, you might want to keep your eyes peeled for Monster Hunter: World. Capcom is hosting a doubles time attack tournament, challenging two-player teams to take on the Nergigante and Pink Rathian in the shortest amount of time they can.

Make sure you get your practice in on the missions "The Awakened Satsui no Hado I" and "Empress in Full Bloom I" as this tournament will feature them both. Players will also have the chance to play as Ryu and Sakura from Street Fighter.

The tournament will be held on June 12 and 13 at Capcom's booth (#2223) from 2:30 pm to 5 pm PST. If you're not able to make it out to cheer on your favorite hunting duo, the entire tournament will be streamed on Capcom's Twitch and Facebook.

Registration for the tournament will begin at noon and end at 2 pm PST both days. It will be limited to 12 players each day, so you'll want to grab some wiggly litchis and make it to the booth quick. This is a doubles tournament, so everyone will be required to have a partner. Not going with a friend? Head to the booth a little early to find another hunter who might need a pal.

Every participant will take home a Nergigante statue like the one included in the Monster Hunter: World collector's edition. One duo a day will walk home with exclusive Monster Hunter: World E3 2018 Time Attack Champion trophies. But the winners won't get all the spoils. Capcom will also host raffles throughout the tournaments for the audience.

Capcom isn't the only booth with special goodies for attendees. Bring your Switch to Nintendo's booth, and you might get a special collectible pin. For everything else E3, head on over to our E3 2018 hub.
