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?
