While the complete registration numbers for Evolution 2014 are already common knowledge, organizer Tom Cannon recently provided a look at the diversity of the competitors who will be taking part.
According to Cannon, 836 players from outside the United States will be testing their skills at the largest fighting game tournament in the world, hailing from 46 different countries. Canada will see the most representation outside the host country, followed by Japan and Mexico.
“Evo’s primary mission is to provide a common meeting ground for fighters all over the world to come together not just to compete, but to make new friends and share a common love for these great games,” Cannon said in an official statement. “So we’re incredibly happy and humbled that Evo’s international presence continues to grow year after year. The overwhelming majority of attendees fly out to Evo on their own dime, which is a testament to the power and passion of fighting game fans worldwide.”
