Super Smash Bros. will not be returning to Evo events
The iconic series will not be appearing at the fighting tournaments this year.
Despite being a long-term member of the Evo family, Super Smash Bros. time as a Evo fighting game has come to an end, as a new statement has revealed that Nintendo has pulled Smash from this year's events.
The exact reason for this has yet to be explicitly revealed, but this does come relatively soon after Sony's acquisition of the fighting tournament organiser. The full statement reads.
"While we're thankful for all the amazing games joining us later this year in Las Vegas, we want to let you know in advance that Super Smash Bros. will not be making an appearance.
Since 2007, we've seen historic Super Smash Bros. moments created at Evo's events. We are saddened that Nintendo has chosen not to continue that legacy with us this year. In the future, we hope to once again celebrate the Super Smash Bros. community alongside them."
