Hungrybox calls out to Nintendo during the Streamer Awards acceptance speech

Hand-to-hand combat legend Juan ‘Hungrybox’ DeBiedma accepted the Streamer Award for Best Smash Bros Streamer in place of Joseph ‘Mang0’ Marquez and delivered a speech directly blaming Nintendo for their lack of support for Smash as an esport.

The Streamer Awards Show, the annual event honoring the web’s best streamers and content creators, took place on March 12th and presented numerous awards to some of the biggest names in the community.

Cloud9’s Mang0 took home the award for Best Super Smash Bros Streamer, but since he wasn’t present at the event, competitor Hungrybox took his place and accepted the award for him.

Hbox took the stage and gave a speech calling out Smash Bros developers Nintendo for their lack of support for the game’s competitive community.

The 28-year-old Smash player and streamer began his acceptance speech for Mang0 by toasting him for his lack of participation in major melee tournaments.

“Like every other Smash event this year, Mang0 didn’t show up. Shocked there mate,” he said, before glancing at Nintendo: “But you know what Mang0 did this year? He’s backed Smash Bros, which isn’t the flashiest game or the biggest game, we don’t have the most money by far, but he’s done a lot more than a certain company called Nintendo.”

He ended his speech with hope for the future of the game: “I hope that this year with the track that they drive, hopefully they will finally give us the chance that we never had. While we’re not on EVO and not on many events, Smash is a beautiful game and it deserves to shine. Mang0 showed us that this game can be the most beautiful thing you have ever seen in sports. Hopefully this game lives on for another 20 years.”

Nintendo pulled Smash out of EVO 2022, leaving players high and dry excited for the event’s personal return.

While the company announced that it plans to launch its own competition circle in 2022, Hungrybox is hoping Nintendo can finally deliver a solid event that the community has long deserved. Hungrybox calls out to Nintendo during the Streamer Awards acceptance speech
