Super Smash Bros. for Wii U returned to Genesis 5 for its third run at the prestigious tournament series. With the recent news about Zero’s retirement, this tournament was the perfect opportunity for the community to see just where the game’s future resided. The sets that played out there could set the tone for the future year in Smash 4, and possibly for far longer. Here, we look over the Top 8 finalists and the journeys they took through Top 32.
The fifth in a series of premier grassroots Super Smash Bros. tournaments, Genesis 5 will take place this year in Oakland, CA, from Friday, January 19th to Sunday, January 21st. Genesis 5 will not only host Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, but will also host a variety of other games including Rivals of Aether, Street Fighter V, Splatoon 2, and Dance Dance Revolution Extreme.

These accomplishments are only made all the more impressive when one learns that Sol bumped into the Smash scene nearly by accident.
