Evolution 2016 Is Going To Be The Biggest Super Smash Bros Tournament Ever

Evo 2016's entrants for Super Smash Bros Wii U break registration records for any Super Smash Bros tournament ever.

The Evolution Championship Series is the biggest fighting game tournament in the world. Since Evo’s inception back in 2002, the tournament has been growing steadily larger every year — and in 2016, Evo will set the record for most entrants into any Super Smash Bros tournament ever.

Evo’s Twitter account announced that entrants for Super Smash Bros Wii U just surpassed last year’s number of 1,926 registered players. With only a month left until Evo, this number is undoubtedly going to increase, and the entrants for Super Smash Bros. Melee will bolster the numbers even further.

The Smash scene has been growing rapidly over the past few years, and it’s really awesome to see the community get a share of the limelight that was once reserved for games like Street Fighter and Marvel vs Capcom. And it’s not just at Evo that Smash is breaking records — it’s at CEO as well.

Evolution 2016 will take place from July 15 through July 17 at the Las Vegas Convention center and the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. For a tournament that was hosted in the ballroom’s of hotels for years and years, these venues are a huge upgrade in terms of quality.

Captynplanet is Captain Planet's less heroic cousin. Instead of spending time with a bunch of teenager eco-wizards, Captynplanet likes to read, hang out with his roomate's cats, and of course, play video games. Captynplanet is just getting out of a long term gamelationship with League of Legends and is having a hard time adjusting to life without the Rift. Captynplanet lives in Richmond, Virginia and is almsot done with his undergrad at Virginia Commonwealth University. Captynplanet is pretty weirded out by referring to himself in the 3rd person.
