Evo is going to be a truly massive gathering this year, having set a new record for registered players. But what do the numbers look like when you break them down by game? The PlayStation-backed event has revealed the figures for each tournament, and we're looking at some of the biggest competitions in Evo history.

Street Fighter 6 has once again attracted the most entrants. A whopping 5,265 players will battle it out with Ryu and the gang, and it'll actually be the second-largest Evo tournament ever — bettered only by Street Fighter 6's debut at Evo 2023.

Tekken 8 isn't too far behind, boasting an incredibly impressive 4,646 entrants. This is officially the biggest Tekken tournament in series history, more than doubling the previous Evo record that was set by Tekken 7 back in 2019. That's some serious growth.

Here are the player numbers for all of Evo 2024's main games:

  1. Street Fighter 6 - 5,265
  2. Tekken 8 - 4,646
  3. Guilty Gear Strive - 2,058
  4. Granblue Fantasy Versus: Rising - 1,377
  5. Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike - 1,101
  6. Under Night In-Birth 2 Sys:Celes - 785
  7. Mortal Kombat 1 - 645
  8. King of Fighters XV - 375
