The latest installment of the Apex series, the world’s largest Super Smash Bros. tournament, is kicking off in New Jersey. Apex 2014 is taking place in a new venue, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Somerset. In addition to the three main Smash games, the event will also feature a full scale Project M singles tournament and a variety of other fighting game titles. You can check out the schedule below the embedded streams.

Still riding very strong on the momentum from Evolution 2013 and the Smash Brothers Documentary, the Super Smash Bros. Melee singles tournament has gathered a whooping 630 participants, making it the second largest Melee tournament of all time behind Evo 2013 with almost double the amount of entrants of last year’s Apex. Project M singles has 401 registered competitors, which is unprecedented for a modded game.

    • Phil

      What stream was the KOF top 4/8 on?

      • SecretInformant

        Team Spooky late on Saturday

  • gigantor21

    GODDAMN JUSTIN WONG :O

  • Jake Klippert

    Wong takes KI and Marvel plus a top 8 in SF. That’s how you do it. Props to Justin. Him Rog and Chris G are just damn good fighting game players, always a pleasure to watch. Maybe someday I’ll earn enough points in SF to run into one of them in ranked.

  • RunningWild1984

    I somehow missed SF and Marvel grand finals. Where the hell did they take place? When did they take place? I was watching Spooky’s stream all day and watched that filthy Smash game hoping an actual fighting game would come on stream. @_@

    • Zonder88

      Theres a thing called the “Stream schedule” thats posted right in front of your face in this article that you’re bitching in.

    • countermonkey

      i was shocked at how early they ran SF and mahvel but i guess apex is more of a smash event.

  • Crow Winters

    I think it’s interesting that Project M, of all the smash games, had the most character variety in it’s top 8.

    Project M- 2 Foxes
    Melee- 4 Foxes, 2 Marths/Falcos/Jigglypuffs
    Brawl- 5 Metaknights
    64- 5 Captain Falcons

    • metaxzero

      Unlike all official Smash games, Project M was actually balanced around high level competitive play instead of whatever strange logic Sakurai uses.

  • Angry Joshua

    Honestly Injustice was probably the most hype game here….real rap
    Top 8’s since NEC have been nothing short of HYPE

  • Dion Johnson

    Yeah, Sanford had apparently ran out of spare fucks in his pockets to give in gf.

    Ouch.

    • yeee geee

      Black ppl win a lot of tourneys I luv it 🙂
      Lord knight we in there
