Nintendo Removes Super Smash Bros. from EVO

ssbm ss 1

So Nintendo has removed Super Smash Bros. Melee from the EVO streaming schedule – it’s being replaced by Persona 4 and King of Fighters 13. So what do you guys think – silly mistake or disappointing choice? 

The reaction from fans has been pretty strong, clearly lots of people are angry/upset over this – I’m even having issues refreshing Shoryuken’s piece about it. It’s definitely known that Super Smash Bros. was never meant to be a competitive fighting game; to make matters worse the online play for SSBB was notoriously bad. Let’s hope things change with the new Super Smash Bros.
