The very first Super Smash Con is being held this weekend, at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly Virginia. Visitors to the show can compete for prizes or spectate as dozens of Super Smash Bros pros go head to head in tournament play.
Super Smash Con celebrates video games and the culture that surrounds them. The event features a full sized Super Smash Bros tournament alongside a convention with exhibitors, vendors, competitions, music, and more. Super Smash Con is something that has never been seen in this area before, and is highly recommended for any video game fan.
There is an arcade that will take you back to the 80’s with stand-up cabinets that are free to play, and be sure to visit the Hall of Games, which takes you on a tour of the history of nintendo gaming.
There are many vendors selling video game-related crafts and memorabilia, and a big draw for the event is Smash live — a dynamic exhibition of parkour acrobatics and gymnastics. Anyone familiar with American Ninja Warrior is sure to appreciate this portion of the event.
The real draw for most of the people attending Super Smash Con is the chance to compete in the tournament for prizes and bragging rights. You can find more details and a full schedule for the show on the Super Smash Con website. Game on!
