Best Buy to Host Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Event
Select Best Buy stores will give fighters a chance to try out a demo of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on weekends between September 8 and October 7, ahead of its December 7 launch. Best Buy's official website teases that prizes will be available alongside the demo.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has every character from the series seeing a valiant return, along with several new characters like Simon Belmont and King K. Rool. If it's anything like the E3 demo, however, expect a limited roster available for the demo.
