With an anime-esque reveal trailer, Beyond the Summit has announced the fifth iteration of its illustrious Super Smash Bros. Melee invitational. Running from November 2nd to 5th, Smash Summit 5 will see 16 players battling it out to stop Armada winning for the fifth time in a row.
Along with the eight invitees and the six fan-voted players, Beyond the Summit will invite two wildcards to this season’s event. The highest placing, non-invited player at either The Big House 7 or GT-X will be automatically invited to Smash Summit 5, skipping the stressed voting stage.
Seeing as he is on the cusp of a five-peat, Armada is naturally the first invitee for Smash Summit 5. Beyond the Summit will be announcing the remaining seven invitees over the next week or so, with the opt-in stage of player voting beginning on September 20th.
