Nintendo, the publisher of the upcoming “Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Wii U and 3DS, is currently negotiating with Evo for the upcoming championship series event. According to a report from VG247 on Feb. 7, the crossover fighting series is not a part of the initial lineup of games that will be played during Evo 2014. Among the software products confirmed for the event include “BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma,” “Injustice: Gods Among Us,” “Killer Instinct,” “The King of Fighters 13,” “Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3” and “Ultra Street Fighter 4.”
A spokesperson from Nintendo stated that his company has “engaged in preliminary discussions with Evo” although no decision has been made. You can find some screenshots from “Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Wii U and 3DS in the slideshow to the left of this article as well as the comment from the representative below:
While we are engaged in preliminary discussions with Evo about their upcoming event in July, the potential role of any Nintendo software at this event is undetermined at this time.
“Super Smash Bros. Melee” has been a part of the same annual event in the past. The video game is preferred by the fighting community over “Super Smash Bros Brawl” due to the higher speed and lack of random tripping.
The upcoming “Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Wii U and 3DS, which is being released later this year, appears to be much closer to “Super Smash Bros. Melee” than “Super Smash Bros Brawl” when it comes to gameplay.
