Some crazy requests but...



Densha de Go! if they have one.

Also...



Landing Gear or...



Landing High Japan, big aircraft landing games.

I know I'm not the only person who could drop hundreds into these machines upon coming across them.

Last year, I missed out on the Smash4 tourney.  Looking to get in on it this year, if it's coming back.  I could bring my WiiU (and GCN adapter) if we need more systems, as well, but I'm missing a couple DLC characters, and most of DLC stages.

I'm wondering what the rules regarding allowed controllers will be, though.  I understand many bigger smash4 tourneys don't allow the WiiU Pro controller, or many other wireless controllers.  I'm training with a Bidou scheme, which needs four shoulder triggers for many techniques, so a GCN controller won't cut it.  I normally use a Wii Classic controller, and can pull the batteries out of the Wiimote between matches so it doesn't interfere with the flow of other matches.

So yeah, if anyone has the answers, or know who I should email directly, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks much.

I literally only go for the DotA tournament that you guys had for the past three years, so I'm not sure why the event keeps downsizing the DotA tournaments but promoting undeniably smaller games. If I'm not mistaken I believe for the past three years there were around 200-300 people per DotA event at each year you hosted it so why stop?

Hey everyone, we sincerely apologize for the lack of updates here. Been a busy last several weeks - we are in process of updating the website with the tournament schedule, followed by tournament details.

For the Gaming Hall, do we bring our own tabletop games, is that allowed (board or card games)?

You can bring your own tabletop games! Please do keep an eye on your personal games and also not mix up Tabletop's rental offerings.

Smash 4 related questions

Both Smash 4 for the Wii-U and Melee for the Gamecube are being offered this year. We will make a call for community equipment should there a need.

For allowed controllers (This will get included in tournament details):

"Wii classic controllers and WiiU Pro controllers will be allowed, but you are responsible for setting it up in game. If setting up a controller and its controls takes an excessive amount of time, then we may ask you to use a standard GCN controller for the sake of time."

I literally only go for the DotA tournament that you guys had for the past three years, so I'm not sure why the event keeps downsizing the DotA tournaments but promoting undeniably smaller games. If I'm not mistaken I believe for the past three years there were around 200-300 people per DotA event at each year you hosted it so why stop?

It really comes down to making sure we are offering a good variety of tournaments, our resources, and allocating time between freeplay and tournament mode for our PC area. We do recognize that DOTA is one of the most popular games currently and this was not easy decision to not offer one this year. We will review the game again next year's event should there be a significant demand to have it return to our line-up (vs our resources/time).

I noticed that for the tabletop tournaments there were a couple Texas Hold'em preliminaries. Do we have to go to every preliminary or just one?

Just so you know, I personally wouldn't recommend a wireless controller at this event if they use the same venue for gaming as they always do. There are a lot more people with wireless controllers than there would be at large Smash 4 tourneys, and not to mention a ton more wireless devices in general. I tried using a Pro controller last year for the Smash tourney but it lagged at just entering my tag from all the interference. I suggest bringing a backup Gamecube controller to be safe.

Its been a few years since I've made it to Fanime, and I'm seriously looking forward to the Gaming Hall.

Any chance of an Air Hockey table?

A bank of 6 - 10 candy cabs would be nice in the arcade, running 80's - 90's boards such as two player run-and-guns, classic games, etc.  All the big loud rhythm and experience type games are great but I would like to see a small nod to the stuff before that and something like a row of Taito Egret or Astro City cabinets would also lend themselves to a Japanese aesthetic.
