Nintendo Switch Smash Bros. will be playable at Japanese locations next month


Let's all chip in for the flight

Nintendo have announced that, once the game is officially unveiled at June's E3 event, the mysterious Nintendo Switch Smash Bros. title will be available to play at various events across Japan.

While there are no further details on the game itself - all that will have to wait until the big reveal - a playable build of the anticipated title will be set up at the following dates and locations:

  • Rage 2018 Summer - June 17 - Makuhari Messe, Chiba
  • Jisedai World Hobby Fair 2018 - June 23/24 - Makuhari Messe, Chiba
  • Jump Victory Carnival 2018 Tokyo - July 16 - Makuhari Messe, Chiba
  • Jump Victory Carnival 2018 Osaka - July 22 - Intex Osaka

Smash Bros. for Switch made its presence felt at the finale of the Nintendo Direct presentation in March, immediately setting tongues wagging with regards to roster, style, gameplay attributes, even whether the game would be an entirely new title or just a revamped edition of a previous entry.

The game's huge, dedicated community only have to hold out a little longer for some more answers, as well as a look at the game in action, once E3 rolls around, scheduled to take place in Los Angeles between June 12-14.

Smash Bros. will launch on Nintendo Switch later in 2018.
