Further down his post, the director mentions that those “outside of Japan” should “stay tuned for more news about the demo”. Given the October 3 release date for Europe and North America, there’s still plenty of time to squeeze in a demo for fans. Plus, if you wish to view the demo in all its glory, you can check out Tilmen from Nintendomination’s footage in the video embedded above. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse:
Users in Japan, you can now download the demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS! You can pick among 5 fighters with which to play. The stage is Battlefield, and the rules are fixed. There will be a few items and assist trophies available too. You can battle via local wireless, so have fun battling with your friends. For users outside of Japan, stay tuned for more news about the demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.
The only mode available on the demo version is Smash, but I also left open a feature called Tips. Just remember to tap that button. You’ll figure the rest out once you do.
