EVO, the world’s largest fighting game event, has officially kicked off today, and the gaming community is reeling with excitement in anticipation for finding out who will walk away as this year’s champions. Crowds made up of competitors and fans alike have made their way to Las Vegas to watch a variety of games from July 14th to the 16th, including Nintendo’s very own Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

With Melee’s finals coming up quickly tomorrow night and the Wii U tournament wrapping up Sunday night, this weekend will undoubtedly be chock-full of tense-filled, nail biting moments. If you’re upset over not having the opportunity to make the trek to experience EVO in person this year, have no fear, there are numerous options for you to view the tournaments live, both online and on your TV.
