Nintendo has signed a sponsorship deal with the games tournament group Apex, endorsing the event's quartet of Smash Bros competitions.
Apex 2015, a three-day pro-games tournament which starts on January 30, will include individual competitions on all four games in the Nintendo series; Super Smash Bros for the N64, Super Smash Bros Melee for the GameCube, Super Smash Bros Brawl for the Wii, and the recently released Super Smash Bros for Wii U.
First details of the partnership were announced via Apex's official twitter feed. "We are pleased to announce that Apex 2015 is partnering with Nintendo of America to bring an incredible Smash Bros event," the team wrote.
The deal represents a turnaround in policy for Nintendo, with the corporation drawing criticism in July 2013 for trying to prohibit Smash Bros Melee from being played at the Evo 2013 tournament.
Apex 2015, held in the New Jersey town of Secaucus, also features other fighting games such as Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, and Guilty Gear Xrd. The event will close on the Sunday with the Melee Finals, according to its schedule.
