HomeNewsNintendo Joins the EVO 2014 Sponsor List Maanav Goyal July 6, 2014 News The Super Smash Bros. Invitational has changed both Nintendo’s and the Smash community’s view on fighting game tournaments. Nintendo had made a great leap with the Super Smash Bros. series by holding this tournament at E3 2014, showing that Nintendo itself is ready to see the games in a tournament setting. Supporting this, Nintendo has decided to become a sponsor for EVO 2014. EVO (Evolution Championship Series) is an annual tournament in which players compete playing various fighting games. Games such as Ultimate Marvel VS. Capcom 3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, and Super Smash Bros. Melee are all examples of games players can compete in. Various websites and developers aid in sponsoring this event, and Nintendo has finally joined the list as can be seen in this picture from the events site; As you can see, Nintendo is on the far left of the second section from the bottom row. This is a major leap for Nintendo, participating in these kinds of events, and personally, I would like to see them take part in more events within the gaming community. Let us know in the comments below what you think about Nintendo sponsoring EVO! Source: EVO 2014 Via: Nintendo Enthusiast Share this post: No related posts.
