Riptide’s Project+ tournaments & setups have been cancelled following a “conversation” with a “Nintendo of America rep”

Riptide 2021, an upcoming national Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Project+ tournament, is just a couple of weeks away from taking place. However, with the event so close, that has not prevented Nintendo from stepping in and getting in contact with the event’s staff.

The Riptide staff announced that they were “contacted recently by a Nintendo of America, Inc. representative regarding our Project+ events. As a result of that conversation, there will be no Project+ tournaments or setups at Riptide. We understand the impact of this news for the Project+ community. We will be contacting all attendees registered for Project+ events with further information and the updated refund request procedure shortly”.

If you don’t know what Project+ is, it’s a mod of Project M, which is a mod of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Project+ mainly focuses on balancing Project M’s characters, as well as fixing any bugs and memory leaks that Project M has. Riptide’s official tweet about the matter can be seen down below.
