Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy Times & Locations Announced

Let’s get ready to Smash it!!!

Just under one month ago, Nintendo revealed its plans for E3: A “Digital Event” in place of their press conferences from previous years, ongoing live web coverage via Nintendo Treehouse: Live @ E3, a Super Smash Bros. Invitational tournament, and following up on last year’s Nintendo E3 Experience at Best Buy, the eagerly-anticipated Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy.

Upon the announcement of the latter, no dates, times, or locations were yet announced, but that all changes today as Nintendo has released the information. Players will have the opportunity to get their hands on the very same demo of Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U that will be seen at E3 on Wednesday, June 11th from 4pm to 9pm and again on Saturday, June 14th from 12pm to 5pm, local time.

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

In addition to getting to play the game early, the first 25 attendees in line each day will score a rare gold Super Smash Bros. collectible coin. “There will also be lots of great deals in store and online, so be sure to check them out while at the event.” Plus, plenty of opportunities for StreetPassing!

The list of participating Best Buys is as follows, and appears to be different than those which held the event last year. You can also find the list by visiting Best Buy’s website, which may or may not be updated before the event.
