Apex 2016 - I Got Next front cover


"When you play fighting games, you either lose or you win. When you lose, you get back up again and get ready for the next opportunity to prove yourself. When you win, you stand your ground and take on the next challenger. When you play fighting games, you're either going to hear or say the classic refrain we all remember: "I got next!"

Apex is under new management this year, and they're getting us ready for the next era of incredible Smash tournaments. We're proud to continue the tradition of providing a killer album of tracks covering the games at the event. Hope you enjoy."
Shariq Ansari, Director
