Nintendo is rolling out a new way for fans to play some of its new games at E3 this year. In particular, fans who have registered for E3 will be able to sign-up to get a ticket to reserve a time to play Super Smash Bros. on the show floor. E-mails should start going out on June 5th to those who have registered for E3. It’s recommended to sign up immediately if you get said email, because times will go fast. You can check out the official details below.
How to Reserve a Super Smash Bros. Play Session
Here’s how the reservation system for the Super Smash Bros. game is going to work:
- Anyone who registers for E3 2018 by May 31 will receive an email from E3 organizers on June 5 with details about how to reserve one electronic ticket to play the game (available while time slots last). Attendees should make sure to add [email protected] to their safe sender lists so the email doesn’t get lost in their junk folders.
- Signing up to play the game ahead of time is mandatory. No on-site registration will be available.
- Tickets will be in the form of QR Code patterns that can be stored on a smartphone or printed out.
- For more details about ticketing, visit https://e3.nintendo.com/attendee-faq for continuing updates.
- Reservations will not be taken for any other games at Nintendo’s booth, which will be available to play on a first-come, first-served basis.
“We’re always looking to improve the ways people can maximize the fun they have with Nintendo at E3,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This year our focus is on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game, and we want as many people as possible to give it a try.”
Nintendo is also encouraging people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems to the show with them. Lucky owners who are spotted playing at the Nintendo booth or around the Los Angeles Convention Center could be selected by roaming members of the Nintendo team to receive an exclusive, collectible Nintendo Switch pin, while supplies last. People should be sure to bring their systems along for an opportunity to receive this one-of-a-kind swag, as well as for impromptu gaming opportunities with others.
