While one of the Five Gods of Super Smash Bros. Melee, Kevin “PPMD” Nanney is a player that has been absent from many high profile events, due to continued health problems which have impacted his ability to play Melee. While he is almost there to return to competition, PPMD fans will have to wait that little bit longer to see the good doctor’s Falco and Marth in action.
As a general check-up for the community, Cloud 9’s Tafokints recently interviewed PPMD to get a status update on his road to recovery, along with finding out his general thoughts about how Melee’s meta is progressing, ahead of competition in 2017. His progress is coming along nicely and he may be able to attend Genesis 4, just to do some commentary and interact with the fans, rather than to actually compete in the tournament. We at Shoryuken wish PPMD all the best as he gathers his strength and hope to see him back in top 8s very soon.
