Best Buy stores across the country will be hosting demo events on June 11 and June 14, 2014 for our customers to have an opportunity to play Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U before it is released. The four-player demo of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U lets players battle it out while playing their favorite characters from fan-favorite video game franchises like Pokémon, Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and The Legend of Zelda. Customers will be demoing the same version of the game that people will play at the E3 2014 video game trade show June 10-12 in Los Angeles.
The events on Wednesday, June 11 will take place from 4-9 p.m. local time and the events on Saturday, June 14 will take place from 12-5 p.m. local time. To find a participating store near you, visit BestBuy.com/SmashFest and select your state from the drop-down list. Doing so will bring up a list of the participating stores in that state.
Customers can also bring their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS systems to the event and take advantage of the perfect chance to play games with a group and share tons of great StreetPass opportunities. If you’re looking to pre-order Super Smash Bros., be one of the first 70 attendees at each event to pre-order the game for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U and receive a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin upon game pickup (one per customer, while supplies last). You will also get a $5 My Best Buy certificate when you pick up your fully paid game upon release.
