ZeRo to miss Smash event this weekend

The world’s best Super Smash Bros. 4 player will reportedly have to sit out this weekend’s tournament.

Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios tweeted Wednesday that he’s going to have to miss Shots Fired as the result of an undisclosed health issue:

No word on what the health issue might be, but here’s hoping it’s not as serious as his tweets might suggest.

The $15,000 tournament begins Friday in Franklin Township, N.J. Elliot “Ally” Bastien Carroza-Oyarce won Smash 4 last year. Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman won the Melee event.
