Not many gaming franchises can means an whole fan gathering on their own. The second annual Super Smash Con proves that Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. is one of those franchises.
A different assembly of thousands of fans descended on Chantilly, Virginia for a four-day eventuality this weekend. Most were there for a multi-tiered double-elimination tournaments, fought on all from a Wii U to a Nintendo 64 where Super Smash Bros. initial appeared. Other attendees were there for a jubilee of gaming’s past and present, including a bustling arcade, entirely stocked classical gaming vendors, a accumulation of game-themed low-pitched and accumulation acts, and a preference of indie “platform fighters” desirous by a Smash phenomenon.
Attendees churned and mingled between both tools of a gathering via a day. But each time a contest assembly let out a loud, synchronized “Ohhhh!” during some extraordinary takedown or comeback, minglers from around a gathering gymnasium literally came using to see what a bitch was about. As fun as it is to watch Smash Bros. tournaments on a livestream, zero compares to a electricity of a live crowd.
