Super-Smash-Bros-header

Quick heads-up to those of you who were waiting for the Smash Bros 3DS demo to appear in the Nintendo 3DS eShop — it’s there! The download is waiting for your grubby little fingers to spend hours on as you await the real deal on October 3rd.

You’ll get to play with Link, Pikachu, Mario, Villager and Mega Man on Battleground, and while it won’t feature online play (that’s reserved for the full title) you will be able to play locally with someone else who has a 3DS and has downloaded the demo. Just head to the eShop app on your 3DS and get the download started. It shouldn’t take long for it to finish so grab it, give it a spin and come back to let us know how you’re liking it!
