    Why do they have Smash Brothers Melee when they have the current game?

    • Ben

      because the community for melee is a different community then for smash 4, and their both big enough to bring 2k+ players.

    • SomeGeek

      Wow, didn’t realize there was still that strong a following.
      Even more than Brawl, apparently.

    • Ben

      Brawl is not a competitive game, It’s the main reason why Melee and Smash 4 have such a divide, because Melee players never moved on from Melee cause Brawl was garbage, and new players joined with smash 4.
