The time for Evolution 2018 is slowly drawing near… Early-bird registration time has passed, and with that, Joey “Mr. Wizard” Cuellar has taken the time to provide us with a little bit of a glimpse into the numbers. Mr. Wizard tweeted out an updated list that shows which of the Evolution 2018 main stage games have the highest number of registrants, and the results may — or may not — be surprising to you.

Though we don’t have specific numbers yet, and the results are far from final, it looks like Dragon Ball FighterZ is still paving the way to the lead — beating Capcom’s Street Fighter V, which had over 5,000 entrants in 2016, and about half as many in 2017. According to the tweet, the current ranking is as following:

  1. Dragon Ball FighterZ
  2. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
  3. Tekken 7
  4. Super Smash Bros. Melee
  5. Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U
  6. BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle
  7. Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2
  8. Injustice 2

It’s worth noting this ranking is the same as the first update on registration Mr. Wizard provided, aside from the note on DBFZ’s larger lead. What do you think? Is this order lining up with your predictions? Let us know in the comments. And if you haven’t yet, you can impact these standings further by registering for Evo 2018!

Evo 2018 will be at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on August 3-5.
