Nintendo will be out in full force at the San Diego Comic-Con, this time with Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. The first ever Super Smash Bros. tournament for the Nintendo 3DS will take place at the event, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try out the demo for yourself, too. Nintendo of America recently tweeted a promotion the company will be running for Comic-Con, where you can use Twitter to ask Nintendo to #BringMeSmash. Using the hash tag with your location at the convention will give you a chance for an exclusive demo of the Super Smash Bros. 3DS version.

If you’re attending Comic-Con this week and want to get your hands on Super Smash Bros. this promotion is probably the best way to do it if you don’t want to wait in the long lines at the Nintendo booth. Here’s a look at everything that will be playable at Comic-Con. No badge is required to enter the Nintendo hub area and the booth will be open from 10am to 7pm July 24-26 and 10am to 5pm on July 27.

    Why not just make the demo available to everyone? Seems like alot of fluffing about for something so simple!

    • It is available to everyone in the Nintendo booth. This promotion will have a Nintendo representative come to you with a Nintendo 3DS to let you play the game. Kinda neat.

        Homepage is broken on browser.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          It needs more work.

      • Milky Bacons

        Wow, now that’s different. Imagine someone dressed up as Luigi come up to you and give you a box lined with red velvet and present you with a 3DS with a Smash Bros design on the cover.

    • FutureFox

      I agree. Wonder if they just couldn’t do something with StreetPass to grant access to all those within the vicinity. People would likely still tweet about experience.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      True story.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    I still wonder what these surprises they mentioned are

    • Milky Bacons

      Hopefully something worth listening to. I mean, I’m all up for a new character but if it’s anyone from Fire Emblem Awakening I’ll murder somebody.

  • nintendogamer

    Did anybody notice that there is a mobile site now? It’s kinda screwed up but it exist… Am I the only one??

    • Justin McMurry

      The articles are cut off on the right side and I can’t read them. I sent a message through the contact page about it.

      • nintendogamer

        They fixed it. It’s still a little cut off on the right, but it’s manageable.

    • ZeldaFan83

      Yeah the site gets cut off on the right side and its very annoying and there’s no option to view the desktop site. If they fix the mobile site being cut off then I wouldn’t mind it so much.

    • Thanks for the feedback, we’ll be constantly rolling out updates to the site all day today. I’ll be sure to patch that right up!

  • simkenno

    Your mobile site, isn’t fully operational. The right hand text continues off the screen so you can’t fully read it. Also if you then turn the device on its side to read it the G+, FB, Twitter etc logos get in the way of the bottom text 🙁

  • FutureFox

    Its weird. I just read the other day about the pitfalls of having a responsive website. The complaints on here seem to justify that position.

  • Phoenix Maybe

    I know this is unrelated to the article, but has anyone noticed the mobile version of this site? It looks great, but all the articles show up as halves. I guess it’s a formatting issue or something.

  • Lusunup

    God Dammit! Nintendo just bring on smash into the Eshop!!!

    • Epicstuf

      The demo or the game? If you said the game, they are not even finished. The demo? Well, it will crash the Eshop.

      • Phoenix Maybe

        How? Too many downloads at the same time?

        • SmashFinale


        • Epicstuf

          No, it’s a build.

          • Phoenix Maybe

            Oh. Makes sense.

  • jjbredesen

    The site looks different, and i like it, but as many have pointed out the mobile site does not work that good, anyways..

    Why can’t we get a demo on the E-Shop!! I need to try smash, please Nintendo make it happen, i don’t care how little futures they put in the demo, i just need to try it!

    • Epicstuf

      The demo will crash the Eshop.

      • great deku tree

        not if they split up the release time of the demo between each continent. maybe a week or so apart so that it’ll stay stable. I wouldn’t care if Europe was last as long as I could get a shot at SSB4 before the release date.
