Attendees at this year’s E3 will have the chance to play the highly-anticipated, upcoming Smash Bros. installment on the Nintendo Switch, a privilege that surely left east-coasters unwilling to book a cross-country flight to attend green with envy. Until now, that is. Nintendo’s just-announced E3 Experience will take place in Nintendo World, New York, and will allow fans to play Super Smash Bros. for the Switch during allotted time slots over the course of three days.
Nintendo’s E3 Experience is a five-day event, spanning from June 11 to June 15, where Nintendo enthusiasts in New York City will be able to participate in a variety of E3 festivities without having to fly all the way out to Los Angeles for the main event. Along with Super Smash Bros. on Switch, Nintendo’s E3 Experience will feature a Nintendo Direct, a variety of video streams including Splatoon 2‘s World Championship Opening Round and Finals, and Mario Tennis Aces, which will also be playable during set times.
The event is likely to draw a considerable crowd, and with the limited space inside Nintendo World’s two floors, it’s strongly advised to show up as early as possible to limit wait time and secure a good position. However, each activity limits attendees from lining up any earlier than 7AM, with the exception of the Super Smash Bros. Invitational 2018 Video Stream, which limits attendees from lining up before 9AM.
As mentioned earlier, those fortunate enough to attend the main E3 event in LA will also get their shot with Smash Bros. Switch. Further, E3 attendees will be witness to the most up-to-date developments coming out every day, which will undoubtedly shed some much-needed light on the elusive Switch installment of Smash Bros.
Until that time, fans have no choice but to obsess over what little information has been shared, as well as the few credible leaks that might provide a glimpse into what’s to come for everyone’s favorite Nintendo brawler. To that end, feel free to speculate over this supposed roster leak, which does hold some weight due to its historically accurate source.
Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch is expected to release in 2018.
