It has been a little over a month since ZeRo — the undisputed best player in the history of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U — decided to retire from competitive play in the game. While he previously stated that he’d keep his options open if a new game were to come out, little did he know that would happen sooner rather than later.

With the announcement of a new Super Smash Bros. title coming to the Switch, his resolve was certainly tested. However, given the timing of the new release, the Chilean took to YouTube to state that he was currently enjoying his time away from competition, and had no desire to compete competitively in the upcoming title. He did state that he would be learning the game, so maybe the door is still open for him to make a return at a later date.
