Ultimate’s newest event, “A Tribute to Melee” (“Melee is Life” in Europe) will pay homage to Melee through it’s online tourney mode. This tournament will only allow players to compete with characters, stages, and items introduced in Melee (asides from Smash Balls, which were introduced in Brawl). The full list can be found here.
In addition, some of the characters were posed in the notification to look like their character portraits back in Melee. GameXplain has provided comparisons with a thumbnail that uses the same image.
The “A Tribute to Melee” event will take place from January 3, 2020 and will last until January 6, 2020.
