Meanwhile, Smash holds strong to second place!
As registration draws near to closing for Evo 2017, Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar gave us another peek at the comparative registration standings for each main event. Here’s how the registration count for each game currently stacks up:
1. Street Fighter V
2. / 3. Super Smash Bros. Melee / Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (tied)
4. Tekken 7
5. Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2
6. Injustice 2
7. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3
8. BlazBlue: Central Fiction
9. The King of Fighters XIV
Since the prior list provided just over a month ago, registration for Tekken 7 and Ultimate Marvel. vs. Capcom 3 have increased relatively, bumping them each up a notch on the list. Surely Tekken 7‘s release and positive reception have had an effect; has news on Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite done the same for UMvC3? Whether you’re registered for the former iteration or not, you’ll be able to try Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite‘s VERSUS demo at Evo this year.
Only five days remain to register — or add games to your registration — for Evo 2017 on smash.gg. Don’t miss your chance!
Evo 2017 takes place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 14-16.
