Marss has been on the rise in the last year. Panda Global ranked him the 13th best Smash 4 player in the world based on notable victories over top 20 players like PG’s own Eric “ESAM” Lew and R. “Komokiri” Furukawa.
“I’m excited to become the first Smash 4 Player for Denial eSports,” Marss said in a statement. “Denial will enable me to be able to go to more events. I’m ready to represent the WolfPack moving forward.”
The Zero Suit Samus main has had strong finishes this year, placing seventh at GENESIS 3, winning KTAR XVII, and taking ninth at Evo 2016.
“We’re excited to add Marss to our roster. Marss has been showing he has a very bright future within Smash 4,” Denial eSports COO Ray Arsenault told Yahoo Esports. “We can’t wait to attend and watch Marss at his very first event under Denial at Shine.”
Shine 2016 takes place August 26-28.
