Nintendo just shut down the Smash World Tour

Smash World Tour will cease to exist starting immediately. 

The organizers of the Smash World Tour have confirmed it has dropped the championship tournament as well as next year's events after receiving a cease and decist notice from Nintendo.

Nintendo has had a long and contentious history with third-party events and tournaments that use Super Smash Bros.

It's unfortunate Nintendo had to cancel an event just before it would've taken place.

Either way, the Smash World Tour organizers will take the brunt of the financial loss due to the cancelation.

Despite this unlikely turn of events, the organizers promise to refund all of the attendees.
