If there’s any game that is sure to light the competitive spirit in any Nintendo fan’s heart, it’s Super Smash Bros. Melee (unless you wanna bring Mario Party into the mix, but that’s more deception and trickery than competitiveness). Adam Apicella of Major League Gaming announced today via Twitter that Super Smash Bros. Melee would be joining the Pro Circuit lineup at MLG Anaheim.
While it may not seem like much of a surprise that Super Smash Bros. Melee is present at a major competitive gaming event, there have been issues in the past with streaming Super Smash Bros. content. As a matter of fact, Super Smash Bros. Brawl will not be available at MLG Anaheim this year due to licensing issues involving some of the third-party characters present in Brawl.
If you’re into the eSports scene and want to check out MLG Anaheim, the event is going down on June 20-22. Ticket and streaming information will likely be available in the coming future.
