Regarding Super Smash Bros. Melee
Last year’s Smash event was amazing, and what the Smash community has done over the last year has been inspirational. We still have room in our lineup for Smash, and we’re in discussions with Nintendo regarding a possible role for Smash in 2014. Here is a statement from Nintendo regarding the situation.
While we are engaged in preliminary discussions with Evo about their upcoming event in July, the potential role of any Nintendo software at this event is undetermined at this time.
We’ll update you as soon as we have more information.
In addition to the lineup announcement, Cuellar mentioned that they will be redesigning the Road to Evo system. Instead of designating multiple tournaments official stops, the organizers will take in results from events over the course of the year in an attempt to seed players in their respective games. This system is still being worked on so expect more concrete information in the near future.
Furthermore, Evo 2014 will see two very special Super Street Fighter II Turbo events in honor of the title’s tenth anniversary. Super Turbo Revival will be running both X-MANIA US, part of the long-running Japanese tournament of the same name, as well as a second installment of the Tournament of Legends exhibition. All the details for both can be found here.
