    Nintendo and Best Buy have partnered up before, to allow fans to play select games at demo kiosks prior to release, and it seems the tradition will continue with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Ten United States Best Buy locations will be setting up demo units later this month, and into October, where you'll be able to try out the game before its December 7th release. If you live in California, Washington, Texas, New York, or the other listed states, you might want to see if one of the events is near your area. Small prizes will also be given out to those that play the demo.

    Well for new york, Manhattan is the major part of the state, not Bronx. Still there is enough stuff here to go around and plenty of stores here. Just no one ever gives attention to them probably cause they share the building with other stores rather than just owning it's own building.

    Back when 3DS released, they had a demo units of the system in the New York Grand Terminal Station which is not really a place for advertising games, but many people do have small side stores there which so I guess wasn't the worst place. I figured at least nintendo world or gamestop something relevant unlike best buy which isn't entirely about games. Guess in hindsight it means more people than just gamers will see it. :ninja:

    I don't see why they don't ever put these out in more places.

    I can expect two things from this...
    1) someone on 4chan is going to claim that they work at Best Buy and somehow “got”the game and “dumped” the contents
    2) someone actually will get the game and dump the contents and share on 4chan

    Either way, there will be “leaks.”

    Exactly, going to Manhattan to wait in big lines make me lose interest. Might as well host it in the official Nintendo store.

    I'm glad the US is the only country, otherwise others would feel left out.

    Really how hard is it to host this at SEVERAL locations?

    Glad I got to play 4 rounds at E3.

    It's like that one scene from TMNT with the burnout building with the arcade machines. Except it'll be Best Buy and SSBU. So, basically the same thing.

    PS - Yea, I don't care either. Only really care about SSBM since I play it with my BIL. Just like Mario Kart (which we should play more).

    I don't think there will be any in Canada, at least not for a while. I'm assuming if we do get a demo event they'll be in the Toronto and Vancouver areas.
