Nintendo is confronting the Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros Melee community with the cancellation of their tournaments, and prohibits the sale of Etika products from the Switch.
Nintendo is once again the protagonist of the controversy before the Nintendo Switch community, and twice. A few weeks ago canceled a Super Smash Bros Melee tournament, the legendary Gamecube game, and this weekend the Big N has canceled the Splatoon 2 tournament …
The reason? Well, it’s a long story. To get started, Nintendo of America canceled a tournament from Super Smash Bros Melee and Super Smash Bros Ultimate, hosted by The Big Brothers and starring fans of the fighting saga, which hurt the Switch community.
This, in the words of Nintendo itself, was due to the use of un mod, Slippi, as well as alleged illegal versions of both titlesBut the Smash Bros community contends that an injustice was done.
And if that was not enough, Nintendo cut the broadcast of the Splatoon 2 tournament this weekend, as many players changed their nicknames for FreeMelee and other similar terms, which angered the Big N and led to this cancellation.
The Splatoon 2 and Super Smash Bros communities are very upset with Nintendo, and are asking a better internet connection for these tournaments, which is why they justify the use of Slippi, which speeds up and improves the performance of online multiplayer games on Nintendo Switch.
The other big point of controversy is that Nintendo has banned the sale of Etika brand products for Switch, whose benefits went to the JED Foundation organization, in charge of adolescent and youth mental health in the United States.
