What an amazing 180 Nintendo has made in the last 12 months. It was only 2 years ago that Nintendo refused to support or even acknowledge the competitive Smash community. In a space between the reveal of Smash 4, Nintendo has been proactive in providing support and sponsorship for Smash Events. From the Smash Invitation at E3 2014 to the official sponsorship of Evo 2014, Nintendo’s change of heart is quite admirable.

Team Apex has proudly announced that they will be partnering with Nintendo of America to bring an “incredible Smash Event.” Apex is one of the largest fighting tournaments around featuring a number of fighting games and hundreds of expert players.
It’s safe to assume that Nintendo will be hosting a large Smash tournament during Evo, hopefully accommodating Smash 4 and Melee players.
Apex 2015 will be held between January 30 and February 1. For the latest news out of Apex stay tuned at Nintendo News Fix.
