Nintendo Smash-Fest: Play the new Super Smash Bros at participating Best Buy stores during E3

This looks like an event similar to the last Best Buy one for Mario Kart 8 / etc., which means the lines will probably be insanely long and the play times short, but hey, it still looks fun! And they are giving out gold coins and a $5 off coupon for the game to people who pre-order, so that's something.


To play, visit a participating store:

• Wednesday, June 11 from 4 p.m.–9 p.m.
• Saturday, June 14 from Noon–5 p.m.

Be one of the first 70 attendees at each event to pre-order Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U and receive a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin (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.

Bring your Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS system to the event and play games like Kirby: Triple Deluxe or Mario Golf: World Tour with other fans.


You can check the link below to see which stores are participating.

Went to the one in Buckhead, Atlanta. I will detail the experience on the podcast, but I will say, I won half my fights! (1 of 2) As who? Tune in to find out!!

Also, I'm going to make a thread for this but, does anyone live in Atlanta, or near Buckhead?

Mega Man is a cool character to play as. Took me a while to get used to him. Didn't realize his charge shot was a smash attack, lol

I went again yesterday and got to try my man Kirby. I was victorious.

I lined up on Saturday... Wife came in with me..realized it was going to be awhile...came back an hour later. 1.5hr wait for 5min play (2 x 2min battles).

She played as Kirby "because I can't fall off as easily.." and I played as Mega Man first round... Lost big time ....

I played Link the 2nd time through and came in Second..

Impressions?
The demo was with the Wii U pro controller - the first time I've played with one. It wasn't too bad.... control was responsive but it seemed to play a bit differently then Brawl... I couldn't pull off the same moves as Link as I could before. Probably a good thing but I only had 4 minutes with the game..

Graphics... it might have been the TV..but they just didn't wow me as much as Mario Kart 8.. You can tell it needs a bit more polish. But I was so happy to play this game..and I'm getting really excited about it.

Battles will rain down come Christmas time...(or earlier...)

Still bummed that the $5 off pre-order is only for participating stores. My Gamer's Club Unlocked discount will get me 20% off, and I have $21 in store credit there now. Would love to see it become one of their games to get a $10 GC for pre-ordering and purchasing.

I was too scared to venture out after waiting for, like, four hours to play one round of Mario Kart 8.

But I did pre-order the game with $26 of free K-Mart points!
