Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. E3 plans revealed
Super Smash Bros. is easily one of Nintendo's biggest titles in 2014. With the 3DS version due out this summer and the Wii U version coming in winter, the Electronic Entertainment Expo provides the perfect opportunity to showcase the eagerly awaited mascot fighter. Today, the company unveiled its plans for this year's E3 which includes a Super Smash Bros. tournament and the ability to fans to play the game at participating Best Buy stores around the nation.
The Super Smash Bros. Invitational will host 16 "highly skills" Super Smash Bros. players to the NOKIA Theatre L.A. live to compete in a tournament. For fans unable to attend the event, you can tune in to the livestream online to see these players battle it out in the Wii U version of the game. More details will be shared soon.
Nintendo and Best Buy will also expand on the partnership formed during last year's E3 and will allow fans around the world to play Super Smash Bros. for Wii U at participating Best Buy stores. Dates, times, locations, and game content will be revealed shortly.
Lastly, Nintendo also announced today that it will forgo a traditional press briefing. Instead, the company will build upon its Nintendo Direct approach by hosting the Nintendo Digital Event, "a new kind of video program that will reveal and provide further details about the gaming experiences on the way for Nintendo platforms in 2014 and beyond."
