The Evo 2013 championship tournament will be one game short this time around, and it’s Super Smash Bros. Melee. The reason? Nintendo of America has apparently contacted the Evo 2013 staff in that permission to stream the game was not permitted. With this said, Persona 4 Arena and King of Fighters XIII will fit in the time slot that was originally planned for Melee.
It is a bit of a regrettable move, though, as Super Smash Bros. Melee was placed into the tournament due to a massive charity drive. No other reasons were given as to why the game was pulled by both Evo and Nintendo of America.
*Update: Super Smash Bros. Melee is officially back at Evo 2013! Power to the player!
