Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy

[ Edited ]

 

Nintendo has a SMASHING surprise in store for fans this summer! Together we’re offering players a chance to go head to head with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U before it launches in stores later this year.  On June 11 from 4 to 9 p.m. and June 14 from 12 to 5 p.m select stores 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 E3 2014 in Los Angeles. See our list of participating locations below.

 

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 Pokémon, Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and The Legend of Zelda.

 

In addition to the action-filled demo, the first 25 attendees in line on Wednesday, June 11* (update in paragraph below) and Saturday, June 14 at each event will receive a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin (one per customer, while supplies last). There will also be lots of great deals in store and online so be sure to check them out while at the event.

 

*UPDATE:

We are excited for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy this Wednesday and Saturday at select Best Buy stores in Canada. We apologize to our fans attending the Smash-Fest events however the Super Smash Bros. limited edition gold-coloured coins are delayed in shipping and will be unavailable at the events. However, the first 35 people in line at each store on both event days will still be eligible to get the coin. Nintendo staff onsite will take down names, and shipping information, and coins will be shipped early next week (June 16th). Limit one coin per person. Thanks for your patience, and we look forward to seeing you at the events this week!

 

As one of E3 2014’s most talked-about games, Super Smash Bros. will likely draw a crowd, so attendees should bring their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS systems to the event and take advantage of the perfect chance to play games like Kirby: Triple Deluxe or Mario Golf: World Tour.

Re: Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy

Hello, I was wondering if you could let me know if there will be a Smash Bros. Demo playable at this location:

 

Langley - Langley

200th St & 64th Avenue - Unit F3

  • 20202 66th Ave., Unit F3
  • Langley, BC, V2Y 1P3

I'm only asking because I was there for both the E3 demo last year and the Mario Kart demo last week and the Nintendo Representative said that it would be available at this location. Can you confirm or deny this claim? Or are the only demo stations available going to be at the locations listed in your post?

hi @tybat11 

 

We're just double checking with Nintendo - I'll post here when we get confirmation either way about Langley!

 

Cheers,

Hello, just checking to be sure because Mario Kart 8 was here at the Best Buy in Windsor yet was not listed as a location.

This event seems bigger than the Mario Kart 8 demo, If a location is not listed is there still possible chance of it appearing in Best Buys not listed such as the one in Windsor?

Thank you for your time.

Re: Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy

Will there be a planned system on sharing who gets turns, or is the crowd expected to self-regulate?

 

Also, are there any restrictions about filming footage of the game via hand-cams/phones, etc?

Hi @JamalHashem @tybat11 @hua1015

 

Unfortunately, all the stores listed above are final and we don't expect to be adding any additional - if this changes, I'll for sure update this thread, but it's not expected to change. Hopefully you can get some friends together and go on a little road trip!

 

@JordanMcGee  - there will be staff on hand to help organize line ups, so there will be some order Smiley Wink As for filming, it's best to check with the store.

 

Cheers!

Hi AnthanasioSipsis - I've updated the schedule to have the addresses listed instead of the store IDs - should make it much easier to figure out where to go haha!
