“We want you to know in advance that Super Smash Bros. will not make his return“, can be read in the statement. “Since 2007 we have seen historical moments of Super Smash Bros. created in the events of EVO. We are saddened that Nintendo has decided not to continue that legacy with us this year. We hope that in the future we can celebrate the community of Super Smash Bros. with them”.
