The highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game arrives on the Nintendo Switch™ system on Dec. 7.

But you don’t need to wait till then to try it out.

That’s because 10 U.S. Best Buy stores will host Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Events during September and October, giving fans the chance to demo the new game – the first time a retailer has offered Super Smash Bros. Ultimate demos.

Gaming icons clash in the ultimate brawl you can play anytime, anywhere. Smash rivals off the stage as new characters Simon Belmont and King K. Rool join Inkling, Ridley, and every fighter in Super Smash Bros. history. Enjoy enhanced speed and combat at new stages based on the Castlevania™ series, Super Mario Odyssey™, and more. And it has local and online* multiplayer, so you can challenge your friends when you’re on the go.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available for pre-order now on, and receive an exclusive Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Collectible Coin when you do. And if you’re a My Best Buy member you’ll get $10 in reward certificates.**
