Earlier tonight, online registration for Evolution 2014 came to a close. With no plans for taking on-site registration, tournament organizer Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar was able to provide concrete figures for each game’s bracket this evening, and the numbers are just as huge as you would expect for the largest fighting game tournament in the world.
First off, the clear favorites. Capcom’s Ultra Street Fighter IV tipped the scales with almost 2000 competitors, followed by Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 at just over 1000. The top three this year is rounded out by the resurging Super Smash Bros. Melee community, who came very close to snatching away the second position.
After that, BlazBlue: Chronophantasma sees strong representation by the airdasher community, followed by (in order) Killer Instinct, King of Fighters XIII, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2.
A complete look at the event’s registration numbers can be found below.
- Ultra Street Fighter IV – 1979
- Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – 1014
