    1. I’m sure it’ll be a long wait with everyone piling in so few locations.

      It wasn’t too bad where I was at. Well… The initial wait was long but everyone seemed to just want one go so you could hang out and play again quickly. Plus I got my hands on a 3DS demo a rep had taken off their belt and that was good.

      Admittedly, it did seem pretty bad at first. I waited behind some yahoo who brought like two gamecube controllers and his own pro controller (obviously he didn’t get to use any of them for the demo) and then a group that was like “OHHH… Should we pick new characters or pick someone we’re good with to show our mad skillz?” They lost. To me. It wasn’t fun.

      But then it seemed like the cool people stayed around after that and it was a good time just taking turns and watching matches while sitting around the tv

  1. This is stupid. Why can’t you just update the kiosks to include a timed demo? They did it with Mario Odyssey, why not Smash Bros?

    1. You act like it’s some no name hick place. More people live in Denver than Vegas (literally in the middle of of a desert). It’s more of an issue of all of NYC, Chicago, and Los Angeles having one location. Those stores are going to be pure hell. Even back during Smash 4, they had at least two in the Chicago area at least. I’m sure they are limiting the number of units to avoid them being stolen and data mined.

      1. My bad, I’m just salty all these other places get Smash demos and we don’t. But Nintendo should take into account the large Smash scene here in Vegas. EVO, one of the largest fighting game tournaments in the world, takes place here with Smash 4 and Melee having a strong presence at the event.

  2. At this point, I think it’s safe to assume Nintendo (and others that do this kind of limited cities crap for big game demos) are in league with gas & airline companies. Everyone wins! Except the ones having to drive hundreds of miles that is.
