It has just ended the EVO 2019, one of the biggest tournaments in the world dedicated to fighting games, in which Super Smash Bros. Ultimate set a new record of spectators at the event. During the top 8 of the Smash Ultimate Main Event they were in fact connected simultaneously on Twitch over 279.000 users, who have thus exceeded the record set during the last EVO edition by Dragon Ball FighterZ, which had reached the 258.000 simultaneous spectators.

The Mexican won the tournament Leonardo "MkLeo" Lopez, who with his Joker managed to reassemble a very tight final against Gavin "Tweek" Dempsey.
