King for Another Day Tournament

Etika was initially confirmed to return for the King for Another Day Tournament on March 3, 2019, joining Reggie to become a team contestant known as the Joy-Con Men. However, following a series of events concerning his mental health, the team announced in "SiIva Direct • SiIva Lighthouse Live | E3 2019" that his character would be removed due to concerns that unwanted attention stemming from the tournament could negatively affect his well-being. "SiIvaGunner: King for Another Day Tournament Direct 9.21.2019" later announced that Etika's place in the tournament would be filled by Bill Trinen, and the Joy-Con Men would appropriately be renamed Nintendo Power.

After Etika's passing, a tribute arrangement, "Lifelight", was released, and the tournament was dedicated to him and Marrow.
