As you may remember, last March – Sony Interactive Entertainment and esports business RTS I jointly won the championship for the fighting game Evo. Nintendo said at the time that it would continue to “evaluate” the Evo as it planned for the future Super Smash Bros. Tournament activity.

Looks like a decision has now been made. According to an announcement from the team at Evo, Nintendo has decided to pull Super Smash Bros. from the event. Admittedly, it’s a massive hit, as the series has been featured in the fighting games championship since 2007.

Here is the full statement from Evo:

“Since 2007, we’ve seen historic Super Smash Bros moments created at Evo events. We are saddened that Nintendo chose not to continue that legacy with us this year. In the future, we hope to once again celebrate Super Smash Bros. The community is by their side.”
