Avoid the Rush: Consumers can now pre-load Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
To help fans start playing as soon as possible, we’re offering new buying options that let you pre-load most of the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game before it launches.
Here’s how it works: If you pre-order on Nintendo.com, we’ll send your download code within 72 hours of the game’s launch. You can then redeem online or manually to pre-load the game. That means you’ll be able to play after a small game update when it’s officially released.
You may also pre-purchase directly from Nintendo eShop on your Wii U console and pre-load the game from there, OR purchase a download code from select retailers and pre-load to your Wii U console.
Of course, if you prefer, you may also pre-order a physical version of the game from a retailer.
No matter which option you choose, you’ll have a blast with the biggest Super Smash Bros. game yet!
