RUMOR: Nintendo planning to restart Smash Bros. Ultimate college tournament efforts sometime after Spring 2021

eSports are back on the menu, boys

Nintendo really doesn't do much backing of Smash Bros. Ultimate when it comes to the eSports scene, which has been a real point of contention for fans. That said, it seems Nintendo might be looking to restart their efforts on the college side of things.

PlayVS is the "Official Platform and League for High School, Youth and College eSports." The organization was looking to offer some Smash Bros. Ultimate tournaments in Spring 2021, but apparently Nintendo stepped in to call things off. According to PlayVS, this is because Nintendo "wants to wait to restart their college initiatives at a later date." Obviously this isn't super specific, but it is a glimmer of hope.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

Press X to doubt____

I can't even imagine wanting to partake in a tournament event as early as spring when the 'Rona's still going to be kicking around. (~_~)

I'm willing to call this an actual lie.
