Super Smash Bros. Melee at Evolution 2017 was a tournament that promised high-level Melee, and a showcasing of the best players the world has to offer. It delivered on that promise.

Rising to the top is a goal that sits in the dreams of every competitor, whether it be their local scene or the stages of the biggest tournaments the world over. And despite the drive to compete and the talent to shine brighter than the competition, not every passionate player is met with victory and fame.

Masaya "aMSa" Chikamoto, regarded as the world’s best Melee Yoshi, has confirmed that he will be attending EVO 2017.

At Umebura 23 I was asked if I could help with getting as many top names from outside of Japan to this August's Umebura S.A.T. (Second Anniversary Tournament). When I contacted @ZeRo about the tournament he surprised me by saying that he wanted to go to Japan, but he wanted to do it as soon as possible to train for EVO. He wanted to spend three days playing against the best in Eastern Japan (Kanto) and three days playing against the best in Western Japan (Kansai) and it had to be kept under wraps until after EVO had concluded. I immediately got to work with @Ayuha and we were able to give ZeRo the intense one week Smash 4 boot camp he asked for.
