Smash Ultimate Midnight Release?

Hello, I have checked the online gaming event webpage on Best Buy's website and it doesn't really clarify if my Best Buy is opened at midnight, instead I just get a list of all the Best Buy locations in my city. I want to know if the Roseville location in Minnesota was holding one, since that it where my pre order is. 

 

My friend called the location today and they seemed unsure what he was talking about. He said they were busy so they just said they were unsure but probably weren't having one, even though the website had it on the list, if I am using the list correctly.

 

Help me please!

 

Thanks

Re: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Midnight Release

Hey everyone,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us about our early release event for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It sounds like there is some residual confusion about how things should go, so I'd be happy to explain.

 

Please know that all participating stores (listed here) should be open at 12:01am ET for customers to pick up their pre-orders on Dec. 7. Keep in mind that this means your store's opening time is dependent on its time zone. For example, if you live in Minnesota like me, your local store should be open at 11:01pm CT Dec. 6. 

 

For those of you with pre-orders, you shouldn't have any problems picking up your purchase if your store is participating in this event. We may also have copies available for purchase outright for our walk-in customers in the unlikely event that a particular store location has any copies on-hand that are not set aside to fulfill a pre-order. 

 

I hope this helps, but if anyone has any other questions, feel free to let us know!

 

Cheers,

Re: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Midnight Release

What about the west coast? I've emailed my store (which should be participating according to that list) but haven't gotten a response.

 

I'm looking forward to a 9 PM (PST) pickup time, but that's the normal closing time of the store.  Should I expect to be in the store before 9 PM, or should I expect to line up outside the store before 9 PM, then wait for 9 PM to be let in?

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Midnight Release for Online Preorders

Hello,

My local Bestbuy on the east coast is hosting the midnight release for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I preordered the game online at bestbuy.com for in store pick up at that Best Buy. My question is will I be able to pick up the game at the midnight release if I preordered it online? The order details says i have to wait for a ready to pick up email but I fear that it may not come until after the store opens on Friday 10am. I believe I had this same issue a year or two ago when I preordered a different game online-I went to the midnight release event but i was forced to buy another copy at the event and cancel my online preorder and lose the preorder bonuses.

Thanks.

Re: Smash Bros 9pm Release?

Hello mutespittah-

 

This is incorrect, we are not allowed to give out the game before 12:01 ET on 12/7.

Re: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Midnight Release

Hey there brianms-

 

I would recommend contacting your local store to see what their plan is since they should be launching right at about close.  My guess is they will just remain open for the event.

Smash Ultimate Midnight release?

Hello, my store isn't listed for midnight release on the best buy gaming calender. 

 

But when I went inside I saw a sign that they are doing a midnight release? (forgot to ask them)
