EVO 2014: Melee

July 13 2014 by Rory Whelan

Evolution 2014 is coming to a close today. With all the anticipation built to the finals of the Super Smash Bros. Melee competition, there remained two final competitors: C9Mang0 and Team Curse's HungryBox. 

The two dueled previously in the winner's bracket of the top 8, with Mango coming out on top. When they fought again, the fight was just as intense as Mango took an early 2-0 lead in the series, but HungryBox battled back to even the series at two a piece. With the final battle up next, and the title within each players grasp, they dueled it out one more time. Click past the jump to see who came out on top! 

If you were lucky enough to attend the tour of Symphony of the Goddesses, I'm sure you can appreciate the novelty of hearing nostalgic tunes played live. I went to the San Francisco event back in March of 2012, and it was a night I'll never forget. The fans, the atmosphere, the sheer joy of being with people who love the things that you do. It's a magical experience, a labor of love, and an homage to The Legend of Zelda.

Now, the producers behind Symphony of the Goddesses are tackling another Nintendo franchise. Pokémon: Symphonic Evolutions begins touring later this year, featuring tons of remastered tracks from the Pokémon franchise. The tour will premiere in Washington D.C. on August 15th, and will travel to Philadelphia on September 19th. More locations will be announced soon, so make sure you stay tuned to this event if you love Pokémon.

This time I bring you her latest—and, may I say it, most amazing—nail art to date: Majora's Mask nail art, with which she starts a new section in her blog, Game & Nails. Given that she started it with her boyfriend, it's not surprising that she chose to go romantic and depict Anju and Kafei, with their respective wedding masks, in a celebration of love.

Sakurai's recent Smash-oriented Nintendo Direct brought us a ton of Zelda news, the most important of which was probably Midna's reveal as an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS!

So far, all of the footage we've seen was from the Wii U version of the game, and this is our first exclusive look at her on the 3DS.

Sakurai's most recent "Pic of the Day" showcases Midna on the 3DS, and gives us a little more info on how she'll work:

Pic of the day. The Assist Trophy, Midna! This is the 3DS version. She's going to grab and throw things all over the place. Her uncontrollable, whimsical nature remains intact.
