12 July 2022Esports

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Melee will be joining Dreamhack Rotterdam 2022, from 14-16 October in Rotterdam! Both games will feature a base € 5000 prize pool each, flying out top players and much more!


Super Smash Bros. is a fighting game featuring the most recognizable characters from Nintendo, such as Mario, Pikachu and Donkey Kong, but also famous outsiders such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Cloud Strife. This broad appeal has made Super Smash Bros. one of Nintendos most successful franchises.

Competitive Super Smash Bros. is one of the oldest and most established esports at the moment, drawing parallels to Starcraft and Counterstrike. Since 2001, competitive play has been an integral part of the Smash Bros. franchise. Due to a lack of early developer support, players were dependent on each other to host and organize tournaments. This grassroots mentality has been the lifeblood of competitive Super Smash Bros. for over 20 years. With a resurgence of tournaments in 2013, Smash Bros. has seen the number of players grow dramatically. This attracted sponsorships from esports organizations, increased tournament attendance and major increases in viewerships and streaming revenue. The stability and longevity of competitive Smash Bros. make it one of the most respected esports, with support from many major streamers and organizations.
