According to the official website for the Evolution Championship Series (or EVO), Nintendo is an official sponsor of the 2014 event.

The event, which consists of fighting game tournaments including Super Smash Bros. Melee, came into the spotlight last year when Nintendo attempted to prevent the Melee tournament from being streamed. They later backed down, and we learned earlier this year that Melee would officially be a part of the 2014 event. However, this is the first we have heard about Nintendo sponsoring the event.

What do you guys think? Personally, I think it’s great to see Nintendo embracing the competitive Smash community.

Elijah Holt
Greetings Gamnesiacs! I'm Elijah Holt, a Associate Editor coming at you live from beautiful Alabama. My love for gaming started at an early age and has ingrained a love for two different gaming companies in my mind. On one side, my love of the Nintendo 64 and my countless hours spent perfecting the first few levels of Super Mario 64 (I was never good enough to get past those...maybe if they release it for the Wii U eShop someday...) resulted in my love for everything Nintendo; meanwhile, I also owned an original PlayStation, which has resulted in me currently owning a PS3 and PS4 for a few Sony exclusives and third-party titles. I'm a recent graduate of Auburn University, where I majored in Software Engineering. I currently work in DevOps as an Automation Engineer. I look forward to continuing to provide the finest content on the internet to loyal Gamnesia readers like you. Want to contact me? You can always shoot me an email at [email protected]
