Ludwig Teases Possible Super Smash Bros. Event after Nintendo dropped it from the Evo lineup

YouTube streamer and content creator Ludwig has hinted at a potential replacement event for Super Smash Bros. after the game was removed by Nintendo from the Evo 2022 lineup.

Super Smash Bros.. fans and gamers were once again appalled after Nintendo pulled out of the Evo 2022 event altogether. The company’s landmark fighting game title was previously a staple of the event, with Evo hosting some of the most sports icons.

The official Evo Twitter account has confirmed that To break would be absent from the event covering the title. “Since 2007, we have seen historic events Super Smash Bros. moments created at Evo,” the announcement post said. “We are saddened that Nintendo has chosen not to continue that legacy with us this year.” Although the classic title won’t make an appearance in 2022, Evo’s statement suggests the company hopes to bring Super Smash Bros.. return to the event in the future.

Ludwig, a content creator who first gained popularity in the To break scene, was quick to make a meaningful (albeit vague) promise to the community. In a response tweet, the YouTube streamer ominously wrote, “don’t worry smashers, I got you.”

The streamer is no stranger to tournament operations and on January 31, he ran his own Super Smash Bros. Melee Event. The event garnered thousands of viewers and Ludwig even posted a $30,000 prize pool, while providing caster commentary for his own tournament. Since the success of this first event, Ludwig promised future tournaments much larger in scale.

Although nothing is confirmed yet, the To break The community quickly latched onto Ludwig’s vague promise. The streamer has remained incredibly loyal to the FGC community and could come across as a beacon of hope for To break in light of recent and disappointing news.
