    Panda Global announced Panda Cup, the first officially licensed circuit for Super Smash Bros. Melee and Ultimate in North America. The Panda Cup will make multiple stops at premier fighting game events starting on June 24th at CEO 2022.

    A grand total of 32 players will qualify with a last chance qualifier taking place on December 15th. The Panda Cup Finale is set for December 16th – 18th. Details about registration and the schedule of events are available here.

    In November 2021, Panda Global announced that they would partner with Nintendo to bring the Super Smash Bros. circuit to fruition in North America. A few months later, EVO announced that Super Smash Bros. Melee and Ultimate would not make a return at EVO 2022.

    The Super Smash Bros. series was a mainstay at EVO throughout the years and many felt disappointed about its exclusion. The Panda Cup aims to bring excitement for fans following the lack of Super Smash Bros. at EVO this summer.
