Super Smash Bros. 4 beats Street Fighter 5 for top spot by nearly 100 entrants; CEO 2016's final registration numbers

CEO 2016, the next stop on the Capcom Pro Tour, is taking place this weekend in Orlando, Florida. Some of the best players on the tournament scene today will undoubtedly be competing at this premier event, especially with another coveted Capcom Cup spot on the line.


The tournament's organizer, Alex Jebailey, recently took to Twitter to share the final registration numbers per game, and the turnout looks great.

What's most interesting about these numbers, though, is the fact that Street Fighter 5 -- one of, if not, the most popular game in the fighting game community -- didn't receive the most entrants this time around. Instead, Super Smash Bros. 4 takes top honors, beating Capcom's latest fighter by 82 registrants.

Jebailey notes that 60% of this year's entrants are first-timers to CEO.

To see how many players each game pulled in, be sure to hit the jump.
