It looks like Capcom will continue to dominate the upcoming Evo 2016 slated on July 15 to 17 at Las Vegas, Nevada as more than 4,000 fighting gamers have signed up as of mid-April for its latest fighting video game “Street Fighter 5.”

The game developer’s dominance shall also trickle to its other popular fighting game “Marvel vs. Capcom 3″ during the Evo 2016.

While “Street Fighter 5” may already be the hands-down most popular game in the upcoming Evo 2016, it looks like the second spot shall become a neck-and-neck battle between “Marvel vs. Capcom 3” and Nintendo’s “Super Smash Bros 4” on the Wii U.

As of the first week of June, more than 2,000 “Super Smash Bros 4” gamers on the Wii U have already registered to compete in Evo 2016 tournament.

This means that of the 3,000 total gamers for the two games, about 480 of them competed on both “Super Smash Bros 4” on the Wii U and the “Super Smash Bros Melee” on the GameCube.

Strange and confusing relationship

“Super Smash Bros 4” has had a strange and often confusing relationship in the pro-fighting game scene.

“Super Smash Bros Melee,” which is regarded as the best in the franchise, has been used in tournaments since early 2000.

“Super Smash Bros Brawl, on the other hand, never had its time in the spotlight due to a number of tournament-breaking gameplay decisions, notes Tech Times.

“Super Smash Bros 4” does not seem to be experiencing the same sort of trouble as its predecessor and the fact that it is now vying to become one of the most popular titles in the upcoming Evo 2016 and being the newest member of the 2K Club means that it is in course to its main objective.

Other fighting games at the Evo 2016 include “Tekken 7: Fated Retribution,” “Super Smash Bros Melee,” and “Pokken Tournament.” Deadline for signing up for the fighting game competition is on June 30. The finals shall be held at a 12,000-sitting capacity events center on July 17.

A secret conversation feature

There is a secret conversation feature in the fighting game “Super Smash Bros 4” when it was released for the Wii U and the 3DS. The feature is called that Palutena’s Guidance, which is the same as the Snake’s Codec Conversations in “Super Smash Bros Brawl.”

In that game, Palutena advises Pit about the opponent that he is going up against and these conversations can only be activated on her stage known as the Palutena Temple and only once per match.

Unfortunately, Nintendo did not include these secret conversations for any of the new DLC arrivals. Each DLC fighter brings the same generic conversations where Palutena says that he has no data on the fighter and Pit can’t believe it, even saying that the fighter might be from another dimension.

As if to make up for the shortcomings of the developer, the Zelda Universe has voice enacted its own take of the secret conversations on the DLC fighters of “Super Smash Bros 4” including Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta.
