A Rebuttal to Nintendo’s Ex-Marketing Expert On Smash at Evo 2013

Competitive Smash Bros. has been on quite the high note since Evo 2013. The hype that was generated from this year’s installment of the largest fighting game tournament in the world hasn’t drifted away – in fact, the buzz has not only firmly dropped anchor, but the community continues to show how active and thriving it is. Impromptu setups of Melee at Bryant Park in Manhattan are becoming weekly occurrences. Shows like Melee It on Me and streamers like Clash Tournaments and VG BootCamp continually push out content for competitive fans. In all honesty, it’s a great time to be a Smasher.

Of course, if there’s a parade, there’s a chance of rain, and finally just a bit of drizzle has sneaked its way onto the internet by way of Kyle Mercury, former Nintendo marketing employee recently interviewed over at Not Enough Shaders. While I’m not a weatherman, the rain seems to be very off. (3DS, GameCube, Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, Wii, Wii U)

Nintendo is in its own little bubble

sounds like their ex marketing guy has not even heard of the internet-

his explanation makes zero sense

I think there's a reason there's "ex" in front of his position.
