After a huge debacle at last year’s competition and long talks with Nintendo, EVO has welcomed Super Smash Bros. Melee as an official part of this year’s tournament!

EVO is an annual game championship tournament which features some of the most popular fighting games. For years, Super Smash Bros. Melee has been a part of the event, but last year Nintendo, which didn’t want Super Smash Bros. to be played competitively, tried to remove Melee from EVO’s lineup (although they did not succeed, and the Melee tournament became the second biggest gaming stream of all time). This year, however, Nintendo and EVO have worked out their differences.

It’s great to hear Nintendo’s opened up a little bit to the idea of competitive gaming. What do you think about this news?

Our Verdict

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
