WHAT:

     

Nintendo has a smashing surprise in store for fans. In partnership with Best Buy, Nintendo will offer players a chance to go head to head with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U before it launches in participating stores later this year. On June 11 and June 14, more than 100 Best Buy stores around the U.S. and Canada – including a store in Los Angeles – will host “Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy,” an event that features the same demo version of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U that people will get to play at the E3 video game conference in Los Angeles.

 

The four-player demo of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U lets players battle it out against one another using their favorite characters from fan-favorite video game franchises like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Pokémon, Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog.

 

The first 70 attendees who pre-order the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game or a Nintendo 3DS system at the event will receive a collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin (one per customer, while supplies last). As a bonus offer, people who pre-order the game will get a $5 My Best Buy Rewards Zone certificate when they pick up their game upon release.

 

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS are scheduled to launch in 2014.
