Super Smash Bros. Ultimate breaks viewer record at EVO

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate closed this latest edition of EVO in style.

Nintendo’s fighting game was the most watched of the event, setting a new viewer record in tournament history.

As esports insider Rod “Slasher” Beslau wrote on Twitter, Smash Ultimate reached a peak of 279,000 viewers on Twitch this past weekend.

The figure, yes, refers to all the streams combined during the tournament, and not just the EVO. The game that maintains that record and managed to unite more than 258,000 viewers in the official broadcast was Dragon Ball FighterZ last year, with more than 258,000 viewers.

This has been the year of Ultimate’s debut in EVO, which has replaced the immensely popular Super Smash Bros. Melee. It seems that the play has gone round.
