Nintendo bringing Super Smash Bros, Hyrule Warriors, and more to San Diego Comic-Con

Nintendo announced its plans for San Diego Comic-Con this month, confirming that both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. will be playable for attendees. Other playable titles at the convention include Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2 and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, along with a slew of other 3DS and Wii U games.

“Nintendo fans are going to have a great time with what we have planned for San Diego Comic-Con this year, whether they are attending the event or watching at home from across the country,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “From first hands-on opportunities to tournaments and a fun live stream, we want to make sure that everyone has a great time experiencing Nintendo at the show.”
