The grand finals for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at Evo 2016 just wrapped up, and it featured the battle of the ages between two gaming icons. On one side was Ally, from Canada, with his tried and true Mario, and on the other Kamemushi, from Japan, with none other than Mega Man. Kamemushi was coming from the loser’s side of the tournament, having been beaten by Ally in winner’s finals. He was able to get into grand finals by beating Zero, from the US, who is considered the greatest Smash 4 player alive, having had an incredible tournament winning streak last year.
Kamemushi started things off with Yoshi, and while he wasn’t a slouch, he was not able to beat Ally’s Mario. After bringing out Mega Man things seemed grim as Ally was able to beat him again. Kamemushi was able to bring things back by taking Ally down for the next match, but could not beat him in the last match as Ally finished him off 3-1 to become the 2016 champion of Evo for Smash 4.
The tournament overall was highly contested, with several Japanese players able to upset some of the USA’s finest. The tournament also feature quite a bit of character variety, as the game had been updated quite a bit since last year. Top 8 alone featured Mario, Mega Man, Cloud, Diddy Kong, Sheik, Yoshi, Fox, and Villager. Definitely an entertaining showing for the biggest Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament in the world.
