After just four days of registration, Street Fighter V broke the Evolution Championship Series’ attendance record for one game. Now, four days later, it’s surpassed another milestone.
This morning, Evo organizer Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar tweeted his surprise at the current numbers. While an exact figure wasn’t mentioned, photographer Robert Paul asked if, perhaps, over 3,000 players have registered for Street Fighter V, to which Cuellar responded with an affirmative image.
Before this, Ultra Street Fighter IV held the record for most participants at 2,227 individual competitors. Street Fighter V appears to be a worthy successor to that legacy, with numbers impressive enough to warrant its appearance at the massive Mandalay Bay arena. Let’s go.
Evo 2016 is scheduled for July 15-17 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Further details can be found here.
