Nintendo Minute @ EVO 2014

Nintendo has made some serious changes over the last year resulting in a better, more focused version of the Nintendo we know and love. A key change has been their larger focus on their fans and embracing the many communities fans have created. I know some will piss and moan about Nintendo's handling of the YouTube community but anyone who can read and has half a brain will realize what Nintendo has been trying to do with content creators. Most of the negative press stemming from that situation (and there has been a lot) comes from people firing off their ill informed mouth from a purely emotional viewpoint while failing to actually research the facts. The truth is that Nintendo loves its fans and wants to support them in the best way it can. The key thing the fans have to realize is that Nintendo is still a business and has to protect itself and make good decisions that don't compromise Nintendo as a whole.

To this end, Nintendo has begun to shown a remarkable amount of support for the fighting game community. Nintendo made it clear last year that they wanted to take a more active role in the competitive fighting scene with their upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. Wii U. It began with Super Smash Bros. Melee during last years EVO 2013 tournament and has expanded greatly with the very successful E3 2014 Super Smash Bros. Invitational and EVO 2014 where Nintendo is a full on sponsor of the event. In support of the even, Nintendo Minute was on hand to interview fighters who took part in the E3 Invitational to get more insight on what they thought of both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game. Enjoy!
