This is great news. More spotlight on the Wii U is a great thing.

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Personally, this makes me extremely happy. They are definitely showing great support for the competitive Smash community, but it doesn't really matter if things like wave dashing and L-canceling are still absent from Smash 4 in the final release.

Heh, this I like. Nintendo is getting a bit more social.

Was Mariobro4. No, I'm not taking off my backpack...it's important.

I don't think Nintendo was ever really against EVO. They probably just feel irked that some people prefer Melee over Brawl, and that's the game they are giving publicity to. They should do Pikmin 3 vs, IMO.

It would never happen, but Pikmin is strategy-like enough that Nintendo could put a legit competitive worthy mode if they tried. I'm not sure Battle Bingo is enough (or popular enough) to count even in the same place as Skull Girls though (even going purely on sales)

Splatoon for EVO

I think EVO is fighting games only.

I'll be a bit surprised if Nintendo doesn't take Smash Bros for Wii U for people to play at EVO. One of the best things Microsoft did for KI was get it in the hands of the FGC as many times as they possibly could holding character reveals at major gaming events and inviting this crowd to play the latest build of the game.

WAT!

Nah, there was some very specific stuff going on. First off, the EVO planners got permission from Nintendo to publicly present a Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament, which Nintendo thought to be livestream only. But when they found out that it would be shown on stage, they thought EVO was trying to cash in on Melee (more interest = more sold tickets), which is why they overreacted and prohibited the tournament seemingly out of nowhere. But when fan pressure got the best of them, they gave in.
I think this time they are well-aware about the point of EVO, and sponsoring the event not only makes up for the stunt they pulled last year, it also allows them to present the new Smash in a more natural way through dedicated players. That works much better than any Nintendo Direct.

I don't have any respect for them using the console versions of Arcade games. (They should use the Arcade Cabinet). Especially KoF XIII
