Gamers across the nation can get their hands on Nintendo’s new Super Smash Bros., only at their local Best Buy before the Wii U game launches in stores later this year.
More than 100 Best Buy stores will host Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy demo events, giving players a chance to go head-to-head from 4 to 9 p.m. local time on Wednesday, June 11 and then again from noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 14. Customers will be taking part in the same version of the game that people will play at the E3 2014 video game trade show June 10-12 in Los Angeles.

The four-player demo of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U lets players battle it out while playing their favorite characters from fan-favorite video game franchises like Pokémon, Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, Sonic the Hedgehog and The Legend of Zelda.
Customers can also bring their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS systems to the event and take advantage of the perfect chance to play games with a group and share tons of great StreetPass opportunities.
In addition to the action-filled demo, the first 70 attendees who pre-order Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS at each event will receive a rare collectible Super Smash Bros. gold coin when they pick up the game later this year. As a bonus offer, people will get a $5 My Best Buy Rewards Zone certificate when they both pre-order and pick up their game upon release.
