Super Smash Bros. Melee has joined the Evo 2014 lineup, making it the second consecutive year for the game to be featured as part of the tournament. Last year’s inclusion wasn’t sanctioned by Nintendo, and the firm tried to shut the livestream of the tournament down. This year, though, the tournament has Nintendo’s approval to include the title, per Polygon. Evo 2014 takes place at the Las Vegas Hotel and Casino July 11 – 13.
