Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy - Nintendo | oprainfall

Late in April, Nintendo announced Super Smash Bros. Smash-Fest @ Best Buy, an event that will allow the public to check out a Super Smash Bros. demo for Wii U in one of 100 stores across the United States. It’s scheduled to happen on Wednesday, June 11th (4 P.M. to 9 P.M.) and Saturday, June 14th (noon to 5 P.M.), and will feature the same demo available at the coinciding E3 conference in Los Angeles. Today, Best Buy released a listing of which stores will be participating in the event. You can check out the line-up here.

In addition, the first 70 attendees at the participating stores who pre-order a copy of Super Smash Bros. for either the Wii U or 3DS will receive a collectable gold coin. If you aren’t one of the lucky few to snatch that bonus up, don’t worry, because anyone who pre-orders will still be eligible to receive a $5 My Best Buy Rewards Zone certificate on the day they come into the store to pick up their game upon release.
