Meanwhile, The King of Fighters XIV currently has the lowest number of registered players.

As we get closer and closer to Evo 2017, the present “leaderboard” for event registration has been shared–and for the most part the results are what one would expect: generally consistent with 2016’s closing numbers, and reflective of each game’s overall popularity:

  1. Street Fighter V
  2. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
  3. Super Smash Bros. Melee
  4. Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2
  5. Tekken 7
  6. Injustice 2
  7. BlazBlue: Central Fiction
  8. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
  9. The King of Fighters XIV

Street Fighter V already has a substantial lead, with the two Smash titles finishing the top three, for now. Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 is currently in the 4th spot–but Tekken 7 and Injustice 2 are possible contenders to overtake it as they get into the hands of the gaming public! The Player’s Choice winner Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 is presently only in 8th place for its Evo swan song; and newcomer The King of Fighters XIV could use some more love, sitting back in last place.

Of course, we’ve still got about two months for this list to get shaken up a bit with new sign-ups. Registration is still open for Evo 2017 through smash.gg–and you can join additional games after your initial registration too, so get in there and support your favorite titles!

Evo 2017 takes place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 14-16, 2017.
