Nintendo Cancels Splatoon 2 NA Open Livestream

Nintendo held its Splatoon 2 North American Open, though the live stream was cancelled due to “unexpected executional challenges”.

It’s been speculated that this was done since several teams had #FreeMelee hashtags and names. This following the recent cease and desist from Nintendo of the longest running Super Smash Bros. tournament in the US.

The issue Nintendo has with that event was the required “illegally copied versions” of Super Smash Bros. Melee and the use of Slippi Online.
