Sadly, no Nintendo/Smash Bros. gathering was held at Fanime 2013, so I wanted to correct that unfortunate oversight for Fanime 2014. Perhaps the reveal of new Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS will goose interest. But as the first post says, this gathering is for all Nintendo characters, so don't be shy if your character doesn't appear in Smash Bros. But bring Smash Bros. props if you got 'em! I'll be sure to bring my trusty Star Rod.
I'm planning to hold the gathering on Day 2 sometime, so we can get as many people as possible without competing with hotel check-in/con registration. But Day 1 worked well in previous years and if that works best for most, I'll certainly reconsider. Day 3 is when I'm planning on holding the Legend of Zelda gathering, and I'd like to keep Nintendo/Smash Bros. on a separate day so it can serve as a "second" gathering option for the Zelda people who might not be able to make the official one.
Not sure about the location, but I'm thinking somewhere with steps/levels would be cool so we can maybe simulate some shots in the multi-tier vein of Smash Bros. levels. I'd love to maybe use the big planter outside the Marriott, but I don't think we can use that for gatherings, so somewhere inside the convention center lobby is more likely.
If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions about anything, I'd love to hear 'em.
