EVO Japan 2020 will be taking place during the weekend of January 24-26. The titles that are receiving main stage treatment are BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, Samurai Shodown, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Soul Calibur 6, and Tekken 7.

Funnily enough, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate currently has more entrants than the other five games put together. According to AceKingOffsuit, the current number of Smash entrants sits at around 2,940.

Meanwhile, all other games combined have about 1,840 registered to compete. Do keep in mind that this isn't accounting for those that are signed up for multiple games.

As a result of this, EVO Japan News has announced that an entry cap is being placed on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For now, no news about entry caps for other titles have come about.

"Thank you for a greater-than-expected number of registration," said EVO Japan News on Twitter. "Most unfortunately, however, we are going to place an entry cap on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the safety of participants. Maximum number of participants in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is 3072."

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's popularity at these major tournaments isn't too much of a surprise considering that the 15 million units that have been sold already. As a result, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is quite possibly the highest selling fighting game and second best selling Switch game in the market right now.

If you intend to compete at the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament at EVO Japan 2020, you'd best sign up soon before it reaches its maximum capacity.
